Thomas Rhett became the first artist to sell out two headlining shows at Will Bill’s in Atlanta. A Georgia native, Rhett performed on March 18 and April 15, totaling 9,000 fans.

“Playing in Atlanta is something I always look forward to,” said Rhett. “But, to be asked to come back for a second night and for the fans to sell out both nights ahead of the shows is pretty crazy to me. I’d be lying if I pretended there wasn’t something special about Georgia crowds…their energy was undeniable and I’m already looking forward to figuring out when we can go back.”
