After a weekend run of postponed shows due to inclement weather, Morgan Wallen officially launched his The Dangerous Tour with a sold-out show at “the world’s most famous arena,” Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Fans packed into the Garden early to see the East Tennessee native, with the crowd capacity at 92%, a full 75 minutes before he took the stage.
13,237 fans welcomed Wallen to MSG decibel levels averaging 30dBs louder than the average game at the arena, according to a press release.
“My name is Morgan Wallen,” he said to the audience. “We were supposed to start our tour in Indiana, but the good Lord had other plans, so for 2022, our first show is right here in Madison Square Garden.”

Kicking off his set with his current radio single, “Sand In My Boots,” Wallen went on to deliver a 90-minute set that included a whopping 23 songs. He performed several tracks from his record-breaking sophomore release, Dangerous: The Double Album, as well as fan favorites from his 2018 debut, If I Know Me.
Wallen welcomed special guests ERNEST (“Flower Shops”) and HARDY (“He Went To Jared”) to the stage during his set, making for memorable moments for those in attendance.
