SOLD-OUT back-to-back nights at Ryman Auditorium adds 3rd show

In addition to its #1 debut, the album landed in the Top 10 on the platform’s Top Current Albums Chart and Top 5 on Billboard’s Current Rock Chart.

This morning, Rector announced the addition of a 3rd night at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium this October (10.19) after selling out the first two (10.20 + 10.21). This 3-night Ryman stand part of Rector’s next national headlining tour, “Magic: The Tour.” This tour off Sept. 19 at Memphis’ Orpheum Theatre and will take Rector to New York, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta and more this fall.
