Luke Bryan Tailgates And Tanlines Tour Comes To The AMP!
Luke Bryan headlined at the Arkansas Music Pavilion this past Friday, June 1. The show was full of energy with well over 5,000 fans in attendance.
The day almost had a turn for the worse when rainfall and a slight temperature decrease fell across Fayetteville, leaving me wondering how ticket holders would feel about the outside event. Luckily the rain cleared out and the temp. was very enjoyable, especially considering it was the first day of June.
The show went off without a hitch! Bryan performed all of his hits, both present and past. He did Razorback Country proud when he switched all of the “Georgia’s” in song lyrics to “Arkansas’,” but still stayed true to his roots by sporting a Georgia Bulldog jersey at the end of the night.
“Drunk On You,” “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” “Do I,” “All My Friends Say,” “We Rode In Trucks,” “Drinkin’ Beer and Wastin’ Bullets” along with others had fans on their feet the whole night. But, a few surprise songs had them going crazy…
Bryan’s versions of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” Lionel Richie’s “Easy,” Journey’s “Faithfully” and Hank Williams Jr.’s “A Country Boy Can Survive” caused quite a stir throughout the venue. Although he didn’t play any of the covers in full length he proved that he is a very talented man, both vocally and on the piano.
Bryan finished the show with his mega-hit “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).” He of course showed Northwest Arkansas his moves, but then decided to share the spotlight. He brought up a 16-year-old Adam on stage that he had spotted “shaking it” in the crowd below. It was priceless and I’m sure made the teenager’s summer!
I strongly suggest you catch a Luke Bryan show in the near future, the Tailgates and Tanlines Tour won’t disappoint! For those of you who are around the NWA area, get tickets to any show that comes to The AMP! It’s a venue that goes above and beyond to guarantee fans a great experience! Clean bathrooms, short lines and plenty of space for the whole family!
