It’s true that everyone loves to watch Luke Bryan. The country superstar managed to set the record for most ticket sales of all time at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Stadium this weekend after selling more than 50,000 tickets to fans who showed up to watch Bryan perform. The 37-year-old Georgia native is touring until October with stops at a few major stadiums, including Boston’s Gillete Stadium and Soldier Field in Chicago.
Bryan’s fan base is impressive. He’s got 10 number one singles under his belt, and he’s sold more than 6.2 million albums since he started singing and shaking it in his signature tight jeans. The ladies love Luke Bryan, and it’s made obvious by the sheer number of memes popping up all over social media featuring the desire for him to shake it for them anytime.
Bryan’s Saturday show featured appearances by his tourmates Lee Brice and Cole Swindell, as well as Dierks Bentley. Of his record-breaking show the singer tweeted, “Just had the most unbelievable night of my life,” after bidding farewell to his huge audience. Sunday morning, Bryan was still riding high over his record breaking ticket sales and huge show, taking to his Twitter page once again to tell fans just how much he appreciates their support.
“I’m still amazed by last night. Whew. So awesome. Thank ya’ll,” he wrote to fans. In addition to his record-breaking concert this weekend, the country singer has been recognized as a nominee as male vocalist of the year. The award will be handed out in August at the Teen Choice Awards. Bryan is up against a few of his country singing friends for the award, including Jake Owen, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban. Though none of them have managed to break the ticket sales records at Heinz Field; neither have the Steelers, for that matter.
