Morgan Wallen stopped his concert in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania on Thursday evening (July 21) to help a fan who passed out in the crowd.
In the midst of his headlining performance in The Keystone State on his The Dangerous Tour, Wallen made his way to the B-stage to perform several songs, including “Cover Me Up,” “Thought You Should Know,” and “Flower Shops.”
Prior to performing “Cover Me Up,” the East Tennessee native halted his set to assist a concertgoer in need after noticing the crowd trying to get security’s attention.
“Y’all alright out there,” Wallen said, before pausing his concert. “Hold on, hold on.”
The country hitmaker then asked the crowd to make an opening for medical personnel to get to the fan quickly.
“We got somebody hurt down here. Y’all need some water? A towel?” Wallen told the sold-out audience. ”I guess somebody passed out down there, y’all make a little walkway for the paramedics to get through there please. I don’t know where they’re going to be coming from. They’re going to come from this side right here, so y’all make a little walkway for them.”
He then waited for the medical team to assist before going back into his performance. “Y’all just tell me when I’m good to go again,” he said.
After paramedics helped the fan, Wallen proceeded with his concert and performed his version of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.”
Following his performance, fans praised the East Tennessee native as a “class act” on social media.
“That’s what raised right looks like!” one fan wrote, while another added, “that is sweetest most caring man his momma raised him right.”
Other concertgoers said, “I was there! sweetest thing ever,” ”classy move right there,” and “Thank you @morganwallen for caring about your fans!”
The “Wasted On You” singer is currently in the midst of his massive The Dangerous Tour in support of his record-breaking sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album. The tour, which is the biggest country tour of 2022 and runs through October, recently sold-out with over 800,000 tickets sold, according to Up2DateCountry on Instagram.
In addition to HARDY and Larry Fleet, the country hitmaker recently added Lainey Wilson, Kameron Marlowe, Chase Rice, Ian Munsick, and ERNEST to his sold-out tour lineup.
The singer also announced his first-ever Stadium show in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field on October 8, 2022, with special guests HARDY, Mike Ryan and Jake Worthington.
