Hunter Metts Announces Second Concert Performance After First Sells Out in a Flash
Season 19 American Idol star Hunter Metts has been riding a wave of success since appearing on the show. Though he was eliminated in the Top 7, he gained a pretty large following. Hunter’s August 8 concert at the Franklin Theatre sold out in an hour and a half. The venue decided to give him a second show and his fans cannot wait.
‘American Idol’s Hunter Metts to Play Second Franklin Theatre Concert
Hunter announced his first Franklin Theatre concert date last week. Due to the overwhelming response of his fans in the comments section and ticket sales, he announced a second concert date. Hunter will be performing again at the Franklin Theatre on August 15.
Tickets to Hunter’s second show will go on sale on Friday, July 16, at 11:00 a.m. If the tickets go as fast as they did the first time, we suggest that you be ready to purchase as soon as they are on sale. As the shows are in Hunter’s hometown of Franklin, Tennessee, do expect some of his fellow American Idol contestants to pop in. The culprit behind all of the ticket sales of the first show might actually be a familiar face.
“I bought 500 tickets so it’s just going to be me in the audience and it will be a private show for me and I will be very supportive. Much love from Columbus Ohio!” Season 19 contestant Graham DeFranco joked.
The Franklin Theatre has been around since the 1930’s and was originally built to hold a capacity of 730 people. It serves as a venue for music, movies and community events. The venue went dark at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as social distancing restrictions are easy up, the landmark is being brought back to life with Hunter’s concerts.
He teased that he will be performing all new songs at the show. Hunter posted a version of his song “The River” ahead of the concert announcement. Many requested that he put this song on his album when the time comes.
“The last few weeks I’ve been creating and writing songs that I believe in more than ever, looking forward to share them with you,” he wrote.
