Luke Combs played his biggest show to date over the weekend when he headlined University Park, PA’s Beaver Stadium. According to a release, the superstar performed in front of 73,339 fans on Saturday, which became the highest-selling and highest-grossing concert the venue has ever seen. 

The “Where The Wild Things Are” singer reacted to the unbelievable news on social media and admitted it was a show he and his team will “never forget.” 

“What a terrific night in Beaver Stadium with Luke Combs and his ‘Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old’ tour! The fans packed the stadium and brought great energy all night long,” Dr. Patrick Kraft, Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics at University Park’s Beaver Stadium, shared in a statement. “This record-breaking night added another storied chapter in the history of Beaver Stadium and we look forward to many more events like this in the future!”

This, however, wasn’t the only record Combs’ 2024 “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old” stadium tour has broken thus far. Each weekend of the tour has made history, including opening weekend at Milwaukee’s American Family Field where he achieved the highest single-night and two-night attendance (44,752 and 86,720 attendees respectively). 

“We are happy to share American Family Field has reached new attendance records with Luke Combs’ ‘Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour.’ The combined Friday and Saturday shows exceeded previous total attendance record for back-to-back concerts at the ballpark, set in 2023,” Jason Hartlund, EVP and Chief Commercial Officer of the Milwaukee Brewers, revealed. “Moreover, Combs’ performance on Saturday surpassed the previous ballpark attendance record for one show, selling 44,752 tickets. It is clear that Wisconsin loves a good stadium tour and Luke Combs certainly delivered in every way possible. American Family Field has become one of the premier locations for concert-goers and one of the best venues to kick-off the start of a tour. We look forward to continuing to work with tour companies to bring Wisconsin fans a great concert experience in one of the most memorable venues.”

Additionally, Combs’ two-night run at Buffalo’s Highmark Stadium garnered the highest two-night attendance with 98,015 attendees. 

Chief Operating Officer of the Buffalo Bills, Pete Guelli, stated, “The Buffalo Bills are grateful to Luke Combs and his Bootleggers for visiting us for two incredible concerts at Highmark Stadium. As the first artist in nearly 40 years to play back-to-back nights at our stadium, Luke created magical memories for concertgoers in Buffalo as part of the second stop of his ‘Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour.’ Reminiscent of a late-season Bills game, the cool April temperatures only added to the atmosphere of Luke’s shows, as proven by the nearly 100,000 fans in attendance.”

The already successful 2024 trek will continue with upcoming sold-out, back-to-back shows at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium, Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium, Phoenix’s State Farm Stadium, Salt Lake City’s Rice-Eccles Stadium and Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium among others.
