Thousands of fans attended Wallen’s concert at Shoreline Amphitheater.

Morgan Wallen’s “Dangerous” Tour has been long awaited since his last one prior to COVID-19. The country singer began touring in February and will hit 46 cities by the end of September. Wallen performed five nights in California, specifically at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View on September 16. The lineup included openings by fellow country artists: HARDY and Ian Munsick. Tickets reached as much as $400 for a lawn ticket, and for higher-end seating, rose to $1,400 each. The concert had been expecting a busy turnout.

Shoreline Amphitheater, an outdoor location with a grass field for general admission, hosted his concert. The flexibility of the general admission seating welcomes guests who prefer to set down a blanket and watch, as well as those who prefer to stand and dance. Due to the large audience, space was limited and those who arrived later were not guaranteed a spot to sit.

Refreshments were available near the main entrance of the amphitheater. Along the wall at the end of the lawn lies the only bar and sole source of refreshments besides those previously mentioned. The bar carries one brand of water as well as a limited variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

Attendants of all ages wore an assortment of jeans, cowboy hats and flannels. While some dressed for comfort by wearing tennis shoes, others went all out and chose to accessorize their denim with belt buckles and cowboy boots. The audience surely dressed the part and looked to blend in with the Southern style.

As HARDY’S “Broadway Girls” began to play, the crowd grew excited with anticipation of Wallen’s entrance. He stepped onstage to the song “Sand In My Boots,’’ the 2nd most popular record of his “Dangerous” Album. The slow song brought the crowd to sway along to the beat alongside their friends. The following song, “Somethin’ Country,” brought the crowd out of the somber atmosphere with its upbeat lyrics.

Halfway through the set, Munsick was brought onstage to join Wallen in singing “Flower Shops.” Munsick joined in on the chorus; their harmonies bringing the viewers to listen in awe. The amphitheater was lit up with the flashlights of thousands of phones. Friends and family held each other close while they sang along. HARDY was welcomed back onstage for his song featuring Wallen, “He Went To Jared.” The two brought everyone to their feet as they ran along the stage while singing. Attendants could be seen dancing along.

The night was full of good music and happy fans, making it memorable for all.
