The concert calendar is filling up for 2024 and as we wait for the ball to drop on New Year's Eve, other artists are being added to the list. From Buffalo to Albany, this could be the best concert we have seen in years.

Since the end of the COVID pandemic, it sure has been great to get back together and enjoy live music here in New York State. In fact, there were some records set for attendance at concerts in 2023. Lainey Wilson was a FREE show at the New York State fair this past summer and had just under 60,000 fans show up for the show! Lainey went on to be a huge winner at this year's Country Music Awards.

The next season of concerts is huge and if you love country music, the list of who is NOT coming is shorter than those who are. Hank Williams Jr. will be making his way back to The Empire State in 2024 for a couple of stops.

Hank Junior will take the stage at Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Friday, August 23rd, 2024. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a-m through LiveNation. Hank also has a show in Syracuse the next night on August 24th.

Hank Jr is a living country music legend that some may see as controversial. Williams was removed from Monday Night Football back in 2011 after comments about the President. NBC Sports reported that:

Williams began on the broadcast in 1989, and this is actually the second time they’ve moved on from him. He was removed from the broadcast in 2011 after he compared President Barack Obama to Hitler, and described Vice President Joe Biden as “the enemy.”
