2022 WM Phoenix Open Begins with a New Tradition Like No Other
THOMAS RHETT AND OLD DOMINION OFFICIALLY KICKED OFF THE PEOPLE’S OPEN AT FIRST-EVER CONCERT IN THE COLISEUM
The iconic 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale looked very different on Saturday night, though it hosted the same energetic, fun-loving crowd as always during the first Concert in the Coliseum.
Country sensations Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion starred on a massive stage, built specially for the show on the middle of the 16th fairway, with more than 10,000 fans singing and cheering along.
“For the past five years, we’ve been looking at (the 16th hole) as a music venue,” said Dr. Michael Golding, 2022 Tournament Chairman. “The Thunderbird Organization has always looked at this venue as a special place and our relationship with music at the Phoenix Open has always been in place.”
In its first year, the Concert in the Coliseum was created to add more fun to fans, who always bring passion and noise to the WM Phoenix Open presented by Taylor Morrison while cheering on PGA Tour players. With Rhett singing No. 1 hits like “What Your Country Song” and Old Dominion playing hit single “Some People Do,” the 16th hole may have been louder than ever.
Suffice to say, it was the perfect start to the People’s Open and a night that won’t soon be forgotten.
As Golding said best, “We are certain this will be a tradition for years to come.”
For those who missed out on the fun, tickets are still available for the Coors Light Birds Nest concert series that will take place Feb. 9-12 during the WM Phoenix Open. Featured artists include Diplo, Sam Hunt, Mackelmore and Kygo. For tickets and more information, click here.
