FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Addison Agen has sold out her first large-scale public performance.

Fort Wayne’s Embassy Theatre said just after noon Thursday that tickets for Addison’s Jan. 21 concert had sold out, just more than two hours after the sale opened. To accommodate the demand, the Embassy Theatre announced just after 5 p.m. Thursday that a second performance had been scheduled for later that day – at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the second show go on sale Thursday, Jan. 4, at 10 a.m. at the Embassy Theatre box office, at or by phone at (800) 745-3000.

Tickets for the 4:30 p.m. show went on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday morning. An hour into the sale, Embassy Theatre staff told NewsChannel 15 that about half of the theater had been sold out. Ticketmaster’s website was also overwhelmed with traffic and visitors trying to buy tickets were asked to refresh for available options.

Tickets for the show, titled “Welcome Home Addison Concert,” were $10 and $25. Tickets for the second show are the same price.

Addison, the 16-year-old Concordia Lutheran High School student, finished as runner-up on NBC’s singing competition “The Voice” this season. Her performances week after week seemed to captivate the Fort Wayne community and well beyond.

Addison will perform songs from her new album “New Places” during the concerts.
