A great night out at a Luke Bryan Concert
I must admit that I was skeptical about going to the Luke Bryan tour with my friends, after all don’t all the women go crazy for him, wouldn’t we be outnumbered and appear conspicuous? I had heard a few of his songs, such as ‘All my Friends Say’ or ‘Drunk On You’ and enjoyed listening to them on the radio but I didn’t realise how infectious they would be when performed live or how much of a good show Bryan would put on.
My concerns about being outnumbered in the crowd turned out to be accurate, the ratio was around 4:1 in the favour of women. Once the music started, however, all my fears melted away and I was just able to enjoy myself. Indeed, two of Bryan’s number one albums, I have since discovered, have the word ‘party’ in the title and the atmosphere at this concert certainly felt like one big bash. My particular favourite ‘party’ moment was during some of his rowdier songs, that incredibly all seemed to be about Spring Break, when Bryan sprayed the crowd with Miller Lite, even pausing to pour a drink for an audience member.
There were quieter moments in the show, however, which felt extremely poignant and special. For instance, the song ‘ Drink a Beer’, a song about people no longer here, people with whom we would love to share a beer was performed acoustically throughout, with Bryan sat on a makeshift pier. He was able to hold his own exquisitely whilst performing without his band and did this emotional song full justice. The man can certainly play too, wowing the audience with his rendition of ‘Shut it Down’ on the piano.
Despite my trepidation, I found that I really enjoyed the concert, as did my friends. Bryan performed very well and actually, I discovered that his music is particularly catchy. Indeed, I was still singing some of them days after the concert. I will certainly be purchasing Bryan’s back catalogue and will look forward to going to see him perform again.
