ASHWAUBENON - Eric Church has done it. Keith Urban has done it. Now Luke Combs is doing it, too.

He’ll become the latest country superstar to play back-to-back shows at the Resch Center when he performs Sept. 16 and 17 for his Middle of Somewhere Tour. Jordan Davis and Morgan Wade open.

Green Bay is one of just nine cities on the fall trek, each stop getting two consecutive nights. The tour kicks off Sept. 2. 

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 6 at ticketstaronline.com, 800-895-0071 and the Resch Center box office. Prices are $25 to $85.

“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 said in a news release. "So, what I wanted to do was keep the ticket prices the same as they were before the pandemic. I really hope you guys will come out and check us out.”

By comparison, tickets for Morgan Wallen's sold-out show Thursday at the Resch were priced from $82.75 to $162.75. Tickets for Eric Church, who played two in-the-round shows at the Resch in March, were $39 to $159.

T-Mobile customers will have exclusive access to lower bowl tickets at each stop on the Middle of Somewhere Tour, including sold-out shows. Un-carrier customers can get Reserved Tickets beginning 30 days prior to each show at first-day prices on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Country musician Luke Combs performs during a sold-out show on April 25, 2019 at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon.

Combs was a fast-rising country star when he played the Resch Center in April 2019 for his first arena tour, the Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour. That show sold out in less than an hour, with tickets priced at $25 to $50.

As a thank you to the box office for handling the sellout, Combs had 22 pizzas delivered to PMI Entertainment Group, which manages the arena, with a handwritten note thanking them “for believing in me and my team and giving us a chance to prove ourselves on a whole new level.”

He also had a 12-pack of cold Miller Lite delivered to WNCY-FM (Y100) to thank the station for playing his early hits, “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours” and “One Number Away.” Combs had performed for the station’s annual St. Jude Jam benefit at the Meyer Theatre in 2017.

His career has skyrocketed since then with one No. 1 hit after another off his first two studio albums, “This One’s for You” in 2017 and “What You See Is What You Get” in 2019. His new 12-song album, “Growin’ Up,” comes out June 24.

The Country Music Association’s reigning Entertainer of the Year kicks off his first stadium tour May 21 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver. Next week, he performs at the Stagecoach Festival in California and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
