America can’t get enough of Morgan Wallen.  He’s selling more concert tickets than anybody except the Rolling Stones. According to Pollstar’s Live 75 chart, Morgan is selling an average of 27,645 tickets per show.  The Stones are averaging 43,091. And the demand for tickets to Morgan’s concerts is even greater than the availability.  Some shows on The Dangerous Tour sold out during pre-sale.  That means the general public didn’t even get a shot. But he’s trying to keep up.  So far he’s added an extra concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, and two more at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. This also means Morgan is outselling his heroes.  You’ll find Eric Church right behind him in third place, with an average of 15,633 tickets sold.  Luke Combs is fourth at 14,431 . . . and Chris Stapleton is 10th averaging 12,295
