Morgan Wallen Sold Out SPAC! 11 Things to Know if You’re Going to the Show!
An enormous crowd is expected at SPAC Thursday night when one of country music's hottest stars returns to Upstate New York and we know you can't wait!
Morgan Wallen's "The Dangerous Tour" featuring special guest Hardy has been sold out in the Capital Region for months and anticipation for Thursday night's mega-show feels like an all-time high.
Large crowds are nothing new to country music fans, seemingly every artist packs them in thanks to your loyalty and love for "all things country," but the Wallen show is a bit different.
For starters, it's completely sold out - which rarely happens. As a result, traffic will be heavy, space will be limited, and SPAC staff will have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to enforcing all LiveNation and SPAC rules.
Here are some FAQs that GNA and Wallen fans have asked the most - and hopefully this will help you have an even better experience once you get inside SPAC tonight.
