Gary Allan Sells Out Two Concerts at Nashville’s Historic Ryman Auditorium
Gary Allan is certainly at the top of his game. Following his career-high debut with his latest album, 'Set You Free,' the 'Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)' singer received word that his upcoming concerts at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium -- two of them -- sold out within minutes of going on sale.
Allan's first show, scheduled for April 17, went on sale last week and sold out in just 10 minutes. The singer conceded to the demands of his fans with a second show on April 19, which also sold out. The famed venue seats 2,362 people.
“This is going to be a special pair of shows for all of us. The Ryman is magic," Allan says in a statement. "My team and I have worked hard to get to this moment. I don’t take it lightly.”
Following a three-year hiatus from the spotlight, the California native returned to the airwaves with 'Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain),' which earned him his fourth No. 1 last month. The track propelled its accompanying album, 'Set You Free,' to the top of the all-genre Billboard 200 album chart, selling more than 106,000 copies.
The No. 1 debut marked Allan's first on the all-encompassing album sales chart. The project nearly doubled the first-week sales of his previous 2010 album release, 'Get Off on the Pain.'
“It has been a long while, but it feels really good,” the singer says of his return. “I would especially like to thank all my fans and everyone at radio. I would also like to thank everyone on my team who has helped to get me to this point. This is a great feeling!”
Allan will remain on the road promoting 'Set You Free' following his big Ryman events, with tour dates already scheduled through the second half of the year.
