Teen singing phenom and Fort Wayne, Indiana native, Addison Agen has managed to sell out the historic Embassy Theatre for two shows. Both shows are scheduled for Jan. 21, 2018. Originally, there was to be a single “Welcome Home” show for the singer after her time away while performing on “The Voice.” Agen’s first show sold out in just over two hours. Now, the second show, slated for that evening, has also sold out in mere hours.
Addison Agen sells out in a good way
When I wrote about Agen’s first sold out show and the good news that a second show had been added, I almost predicted that the second would sell out, too. Suffice to say I am not shocked.
Agen’s impact on audiences has been called “The Addison Effect.” The effect is not just one single quality that draws people to the teen. In part, there is the hometown girl aspect of Agen, but there is also her nearly ethereal voice, and her unassuming personality, all of those qualities make people want to listen when Agen sings.
Local media coverage
The way people lined up for tickets, hours in advance of Agen’s tickets going on sale, it would seem as if the singer had a lengthy career and extensive catalog. Neither of those is true. Yet, Agen sold out a theatre twice.
Would-be concertgoers were interviewed on local television. They seemed breathless and happy to have gotten their hands on tickets. People who couldn’t come and stand in line sent their friends. This is how the phenomenon of Agen works. She makes people excited – – excited to be from Fort Wayne, excited to hear new music.
Addison Agen’s record of performance
After what looked like a grueling season on “The Voice,” Agen came in second. That she “lost” to an older singer, 20-something Chloe Kohanski, with a defined rocker edge, is no shame on Agen.
There was at least one tense moment when Agen lost in the knockout rounds to teammate Karli Webster. Webster was chosen by Miley Cyrus, and Agen was available for a steal. She was “stolen” by Maroon 5 singer, Adam Levine, and seemed to thrive under his tutelage. Levine referred to Agen as a “unicorn” because of how special he thinks she is. The nickname has stuck. Team Unicorn is a growing moniker for fans of Agen.
Agen’s star continues to rise; one city continues to watch.
