Luke Combs sent fans into a frenzy after he shared a photo on Instagram with a hidden message.

On Monday evening (Aug. 8), Combs took to social media to share a graphic that read, “Can’t wait for my 2023 tour. Where would y’all like to see us play next year?” Fans quickly took to the comments to demand the “Doin’ This” singer to come to their city.

The post amassed nearly 50,000 comments across his social media accounts and hundreds of thousands of likes.

However, there was more to the post than just that. If fans look at the photo closely they’ll notice that certain letters are in a different font color and those letters spell out “WORLD TOUR.” 

While Combs currently has no dates on the map for next year, it is expected that Combs will have a massive year on the road in 2023. Due to the high demand from fans across the globe, Combs will most likely visit more than just the United States of America next year. 

The country hitmaker recently wrapped his Stadium Tour and is currently preparing for his upcoming fall trek, dubbed the Middle Of Somewhere Tour.

Combs first announced the tour, which features support from Jordan Davis, Morgan Wade and Lainey Wilson on select dates, in late April of 2022. The North Carolina native also revealed at the time of the tour announcement that in an effort to keep ticket prices down, he’s setting the price at a pre-inflation rate with hopes to allow more fans the opportunity to see him on the road.

“I know that the price of everything has been going up these last couple years and there’s nothing I can do about that, but the one thing I could do is set the price of my tickets,” Combs shared at the time. “So, what I wanted to do was keep the ticket prices the same as they were before the pandemic. I really, really hope you guys will come out and check us out. Can’t wait to see you on the road!”

The fall 2022 trek kicks off in less than a month on September 2 with back-to-back nights in Bangor, ME at Maine Savings Amphitheater. 

Following his Middle Of Somewhere Tour, Combs will embark on a Canadian headlining trek with support from Riley Green and Chayce Beckham in November. 

CMA Entertainer of the Year

Combs is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year. After earning the crown during the 2021 CMA Awards broadcast, Combs admitted it was a “lifetime dream come true.”

“I’m just trying to figure out what to feel to be honest with you, it just doesn’t seem real, to be completely honest with you,” he said at the time.

If Combs’ success over the past year is any indication, he’ll likely be included among the CMA Entertainer of the Year nominees for the upcoming 56th Annual CMA Awards. The nominees will be announced in the coming weeks.
