UPDATED: Addison Agen sells out second Welcome Home concert at Fort Wayne’s Embassy Theatre
Addison Agen is getting quite a welcome home.
The 16-year-old Fort Wayne singer and “The Voice” runner-up has sold out her second Welcome Home concert Jan. 21 at the Embassy Theatre, 125 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. today and had sold out by 2:13 p.m., said John Hughey, Embassy Theatre marketing director.
Tickets sold out in two and a half hours Dec. 28 for her concert at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Embassy Theatre, so she added a second show.
Tickets for both concerts were priced at $10 and $25 each. The Embassy can seat 2,477 people at each concert, Hughey said.
The 4:30 p.m. concert will include a question-and-answer time with Addison hosted by news anchors Tom Powell and Pauline Le of local television station Fort Wayne’s NBC, Channel 21.2. The station broadcast “The Voice” during the past fall TV season.
The evening concert will feature an opening performance by local music group James and the Drifters, Hughey said.
During an interview Tuesday with News-Sentinel.com, Addison said she hopes at the Embassy concerts to sing songs she performed on “The Voice,” but she and her family still were reviewing the show’s contract restrictions to determine if she can do so.
Addison said she also plans to sing songs from her first album, “New Places,” which she released at age 13, as well as newer songs she has written for possible use on a second album she hopes to release during the second half of this year.
Addison was a sophomore at Concordia Lutheran High School when she auditioned for “The Voice” a year ago in Chicago. She made it through a series of off-camera auditions to get to the show’s pre-recorded blind auditions, and then sang her way onto the show.
That achievement began an amazing series of weekly performances that took Addison all the way to a runner-up finish Dec. 19 on the show’s season finale. Several of her performances on “The Voice” also hit the Top 10 on the iTunes Top 200 Songs music chart, including finishing the season on top of the chart with the song “Tennessee Rain.”
