Luke Combs: Stadium Tour Was ‘Absolutely Crazy’
Luke Combs wrapped up his U.S. stadium tour in Philadelphia over the weekend (7/29). He is taking about a week off before getting on a plane and heading overseas for dates in Australia and Europe.
Before Luke wrapped the stadium tour, he talked to us. He said. “Yeah, this stadium tour has been insane, bigger and better than I could have ever imagined and just absolutely crazy.”
He added, “I never thought that we would be at this point, but here we are. It’s been amazing, and hopefully, we continue to get to do shows on our level like this for a long time. And enjoy it while it lasts. ”
Combs tours New Zealand and Australia through August. In October, he and his crew head to Europe for several tour dates, including shows in Germany and the Netherlands.
Luke told us recently that he and his team were very serious about including all those other countries from day one. He said, “We’ve been building to this tour for a long time, you know, we’ve always had a long-term strategy touring-wise. And, I mean, this will be my fifth time in Europe, my third time in Australia. So it’s nothing new to us as far as going to these places.”
Combs recently talked with Billboard and reacted to Tracy Chapman's comments about his number-one song cover of her 1988 smash, “Fast Car.” Chapman told Billboard in part of the song topping the country charts, “I’m honored to be there. I’m happy for Luke and his success.”
Luke told the publication that he was surprised with the song’s country chart success. He said that Chapman wrote what he called “this perfect song.” Combs went on to say how excited he was that his stadium size crowds related to the song and sang along each night. He said, “It’s so cool that Tracy is getting recognized and has reached new milestones. I love that she is out there feeling all the love and that she gave me a shout-out!”
