Rising country singers Alexandra Kay, Cooper Alan and Thomas Mac are in the midst of the third leg of their In Real Life Tour and recently played to their biggest crowds yet with sold-out shows in various cities across the Mid-West. 

After playing to capacity crowds in cities such as Grand Rapids, Michigan and Lincoln, Nebraska, the viral stars have certainly dispelled the industry-wide rumor that “TikTok can’t sell tickets.” 

Cooper Alan took to the popular social media platform to call out the naysayers by sharing a video of himself, Kay and Mac on stage in front of a massive crowd. 

@cooperalan1 Biggest crowd yet baby! Thank y’all ❤️ #fypシ ♬ CANT DANCE – Cooper Alan

“Looks like TikTok CAN sell tickets,” he shouts as the camera pans to the audience. 

“Biggest crowd yet baby! Thank y’all,” he captioned the post.

Alexandra Kay, who caught the attention of millions with her social media “Coffee Covers,” also documented the sold-out shows on Instagram with a few snapshots from the at-capacity events. 

“That back to back SOLD OUT feeling! Thank you for one hell of a night Grand Rapids,” she wrote. 

The third and final leg of the In Real Life Tour runs through Dec. 17, with dates planned in Denver, Colorado, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and St. Louis, Missouri (just to name a few). 

The artists added dates to the tour due to the overwhelming demand for tickets. 

“We had no idea what to expect when we started this tour; we were just excited to play for a live audience again, and thank our fans in person for everything they’ve given us. To think we are embarking on the third leg of this tour and continuing to sell out venues as independent artists is mind-blowing. We have the fans to thank for all of this, and I can’t wait for everyone to see this show we have planned for you!” Kay previously shared. 

The remaining dates on the tour are listed below. Tickets for the remaining shows are available HERE.
