Morgan Wallen kicked off the U.S. leg of his massive One Night At A Time World Tour with two back-to-back sold-out shows at Milwaukee’s MLB American Family Field. On Friday, April 14, the country music superstar stepped on the stage of a stadium for the second time in his career. This time around, he set the attendance record with 39,609 fans packing the stands on night one. In total, these performances reached 85,313 attendees and marked the first of 58 shows in North America this year.
Taking to social media to share a few highlights from the weekend, Wallen beamed with pride for the record-breaking start.
His caption read, “Milwaukee, I reckon we call that a successful trip.”
For opening night, Wallen played a 26-song set list that lasted about two hours and spanned his entire catalog. The East Tennessee native started things off strong with a high-energy performance of “Up Down,” a track from his debut album, If I Know Me.
He continued to showcase fan favorites from this project as well as his record-breaking sophomore release, Dangerous: The Double Album and his latest album, One Thing At A Time.
The country hitmaker isn’t just breaking records with his current tour, but also with his third studio album, One Thing At A Time. The project remains at the top of the Billboard Artist 100 all-genre chart and the Billboard 200 chart, where it has stayed for five consecutive weeks and counting. This feat makes Wallen the only core country artist to simultaneously rule the Artist 100, Hot 100 & Billboard 200 charts.
Wallen’s set featured a total of 13 tracks from this successful collection including his two No. 1 hits, “You Proof” and “Thought You Should Know,” as well as “I Wrote The Book,” “One Thing At A Time,” “Ain’t That Some,” “Keith Whitley,” “Sunrise,” “Everything I Love,” “Dying Man,” “Devil Don’t Know,” “Thinkin’ Bout Me,” “Whiskey Friends,” and his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 all-genre chart, “Last Night.”
Adding excitement to the night, his longtime friends and tour mates HARDY and Ernest also returned to the stage throughout the night for a round of memorable duets. Wallen and HARDY brought a taste of Hixtape Vol. 1 with “He Went To Jared,” while ERNEST joined him for their fan-favorite hit, “Flower Shops.”
Bailey Zimmerman also served as support on the opening night of the trek.
