KNIX-Secret Show


Ava Padelford, Co-Editor

102.5 KNIX radio puts on several secret shows each year in Phoenix Arizona! But what is a Secret Show? Well, let me tell you, if you love country music, you’d love the chance to attend one of these famous shows!


The Secret Show is a concert with a main guest star that isn’t revealed until the moment they walk out and show themselves to the crowd. The only way to get tickets is to win them through the radio! Call the number, and if you happen to be caller number 12, the tickets are yours!


I was able to go just last month. It was held at the Marquee Theatre and was such a great experience. I remember only wondering who could walk out onto the stage. Maybe Morgan Wallen would show up, or Luke Combs or even the legendary George Strait! I was, however, in over my head just a bit. 


Kane Brown was the secret show artist when I went and he did so amazing! I knew almost every song and went with my boyfriend which made it so special. He was the one to win the tickets for us and it was definitely a night to remember.


One thing to keep in mind is that you will be standing during the whole concert. It is a general admission type of deal and it’s first come first serve, so if you want to get as close to the stage as possible, come an hour or two early! Some people come even earlier than that to ensure they get the best spots in the house. 


The anticipation is the most thrilling part of the concert! There is a pre show before the actual person comes on and that is also a surprise. Oftentimes the bands that come out are not super well known, so seeing a newer band with good music is always a good time. 


The most important thing to do is to listen to the KNIX radio station at 102.5 to get the exact times you need to call in order to have the highest chances of winning! Keep an ear out and good luck!
