The Band Perry Sells Out Ryman in 20 Minutes
More than 2,000 tix disappear quickly at the Opry’s former home.
It’s the kind of venue that makes new country acts quake. The Ryman Auditorium, for more than two decades, hosted radio’s longest-running show ever, the Grand Ole Opry.
The Band Perry has appeared on the stage a few times, on nights where several acts have appeared on the same night. But the Feb. 20 show is the sibling trio's first as a headliner at the Ryman.
And fans were apparently as excited as the band: About 2,300 tickets disappeared in 20 minutes, one of the venue’s fastest sellouts ever.
“It’s an amazing thing. So much of our creative efforts have come inside Nashville," Kimberly Perry told The Tennessean.
“And it’s the center of our creativity. We so much revere that (Ryman) stage. And I feel like there’s an amazing spirit about that place.”
