The Turnpike Troubadours continue to reveal the itinerary of their 2022 comeback tour, which has included numerous famous spots like Red Rocks in Colorado, and places important to their origin story like Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa. But no venue in country music is as vaunted as the Mother Church of Country Music, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
There is arguably also no other venue that is better to see your favorite artist perform at, from the world-class acoustics, to the 2,300-capacity intimacy of the room, to the ghosts lingering in the wings, and the history the walls have witnessed . And now the Turnpike Troubadours and a handful of lucky fans will get to enjoy this experience July 29th and 30th.
“This is a special one for us,” the band says. “The Ryman is a room we’ve wanted to play for a very long time.”
If you thought tickets were tough to secure to the 9,500 capacity Red Rocks, or even the 6,000 capacity Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, wait until you see the feeding frenzy the will ensue for these passes. And as Saving Country Music reported back in December, the ticket seller AXS—who drew the ire of many Turnpike fans for their handling of the Red Rocks shows—is who now handles ticketing for the Ryman Auditorium as well.
In other words, great measures of patience, and probably a large sum of luck is what will be necessary to secure tickets to this event. Fans trying to secure tickets for Tunpike’s last announced show at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston reported seeing over 17,000 people in the ticket cue trying to get through, even after the venue threw an exclusive event where locals could secure presale tickets.
Don’t be surprised when tickets sell out immediately for these two Ryman shows if an additional show or two is tacked on in the future, similar to what happened at Red Rocks.
Tickets go on sale Friday, February 25th at 10 am CST.
