It was three up, three down this weekend for two-time GRAMMY winning superstars Dan + Shay as they kicked off their headlining arena tour with two sold-out shows in Nashville and another last night in Columbus. More than 40,000 tickets were sold across the three nights and as The Tennessean noted, “Even with their three monster hits: ‘Tequila,’ ‘10,000 Hours’ and ‘Speechless,’ it seemed like nearly every song was greeted like a single by the packed house.”

“Nashville, there is no combination of words that could properly justify the feelings you made us feel,” the duo professed on Instagram. “We have dreamed of this moment our entire lives, and just like that, you made it into a reality. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It was so special to see the community come together in one room and heal through the power of music.” 

On Friday afternoon, Dan + Shay announced a $100,000 donation to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee in response to the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Nashville last week. AEG Presents, Sandbox Entertainment, CAA and Bridgestone Arena each also donated a monetary amount per ticket sold for both Nashville shows to the Foundation. That evening the fans of Music City offered their support in return, holding up thousands of “Nashville Strong” signs across the arena in a moment of unity before the duo performed their moving hit, “From The Ground Up.”
