Morgan Wallen Won’t Open For Luke Bryan In Bangor This Summer
Morgan Wallen has spoken-out on his plans for the near-future, which includes no shows this summer.
After taking some time out of the spotlight, Morgan Wallen has broken his silence on social media. In a hand-written letter to his fans, Wallen expressed his appreciation for the support he's received and of his Dangerous: The Double Album. The big bombshell -- Morgan says he will not tour this summer.
Wallen was to open Luke Bryan's Proud to Be Right Here Tour starting in May, and had select festival dates on his schedule. The tour is scheduled to stop at the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion August 5. Runaway June is now the only opener for the show. There's no word yet on whether another act will replace Morgan.
Back in February, TMZ posted a clip that shows Wallen returning home after a night out with a group of friends. The video was captured by neighbors after the group was being loud in the wee hours of the morning. As Wallen staggers to his door he lets out a string of profanity, including the N-word, aimed at someone in his group.
Since then, his record label, Big Loud Records, has suspended his contract indefinitely. Wallen is also been disqualified from The Academy of Country Music Awards this Sunday. It's a brutal career hit since he released an album that would have likely scored numerous nominations. In addition, his music has been pulled from radio play.
