Luke Bryan Madison Square Garden shows sell out in minutes

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Nov 18, 2013

Luke Bryan has officially sold out two shows at one of the country's most legendary venues: Madison Square Garden in New York City. What's of special note is that he's done it with one show that will take place Jan. 25, for which all the tickets were snapped up in just five minutes, and an added date, Sept. 12, for which tickets also sold out in mere minutes.

The first leg of Luke's That's My Kind of Night tour, featuring Lee Brice and Cole Swindell, kicks off Jan. 16 in Columbus, Ohio. A previously scheduled NBA game on Jan. 26 at Madison Square Garden meant the venue wasn't available for a two-night stand but Luke nevertheless remains humbled at the opportunity to sell out the pair of shows.

"I can't thank my fans enough for being so eager to see us play in New York City," he says. "They have made my first time playing Madison Square Garden a two-time experience. I'm trying to let it all sink in, but I cannot wait to get there and share my live show with them."

Next up for Luke is an appearance on Sunday night's (Nov. 24) American Music Awards on ABC.
