After cancelling all 2021 summer appearances, including several Country Thunder Festivals in 2022.
According to posts on Wallen and Country Thunder’s Instagram, Wallen will headline Country Thunder Arizona in Florence Country, Thunder Wisconsin in Twin Lakes and Country Thunder Florida in Kissimmee.
He is the first headliner announced for the multi-day festivals.
Wallen was announced last month as the headliner for this year’s Country Thunder Bristol in Tennessee. He will play on Oct. 30 at the Bristol Motor Speedway. “It’s going to be one hell of a homecoming,” said Wallen in a video posted Sept. 18.
It will be interesting to follow this “comeback” of sorts. After a video of Wallen using a racial slur surfaced, Wallen cancelled several tour dates. While his streams only increased, the repercussions were felt as recently as this month when Wallen was banned from the CMA awards.
