It might be your best chance to see Turnpike’s performance in the near term.
When the Turnpike Troubadours debut at Red Rocks was announced, it was the band’s first announced show after a nearly three-year hiatus. Because of this, it was in very high demand, with tickets selling out almost instantly, and it ended up on the secondary market with big brands. When they added a second show for Sunday, the same thing happened.
But that wasn’t just because these were Turnpike’s big reunions. As the band continues to announce more shows, demand has remained strong, if not stronger. Many websites and servers down As places and festivals announce the dates of the band. So far with about two dozen Turnpike appearances on the calendar for 2022, demand for Turnpike Troubadours tickets remains strong.
How strong? Well, by one measure, Turnpike Troubadours is one of the hottest tickets in all of country music when you consider the prices those tickets fetch in the secondary market. At the same company as Garth Brooks, George Strait, Morgan Wallen, and Luke Combs, Turnpike Troubadours is among the top 10 for state ticket price according to a recent analysis by it. TickPick.

- The Avett Brothers – $150
- Turnpike Troubadours – $131

It’s crazy to see Turnpike Troubadours in the same company of some of the biggest hitters in all of country music. Shout out to The Avett Brothers as well for continuing to be one of roots music’s most consistent spin-offs, too.
When you think about it before the stop, Turnpike Troubadours wasn’t regularly selling many shows, she maintains that the break only helped raise Turnpike’s standing and fan base. The distance made the heart even more fond, and even as Turnpike announced more shows closest to fans, they’re still consistently selling out. Their show at Whitewater Coliseum on October 21 and 22 in New Braunfels, Texas in late October near the end of their calendar? You guessed it, high school tickets sold for over $100.
This is a new dilemma for fans of Turnpike Troubadours who are used to securing tickets for their shows easily and at reasonable prices. Same goes for Billy Strings fans, who topped the Red Rocks on Thursday and Friday this week. The same also goes for fans of Tyler Childers, who will be playing Red Rocks again in September. But it also checks that these unsupported radio stars are finding a whole new level of support and recognition.
The Turnpike Troubadours have always been one of the greatest bands in country music. Talk to any of their long-term fans who’ve seen them come in clubs and honky tonks, and they’ll check it out. But now, the rest of country music has finally woken up to it.
