Luke Bryan rolled through Manchester New Hampshire on his “Kill The Lights” tour on March 3rd, 2017. With acts in tow like Brett Young and Brett Eldredge, it was sure to be a great night of music. Brett Young warmed up the country fans with his hits like “In Case You Didn’t Know” and “Sleep Without You.” As a newcomer, Young is sure to become a staple for a time to come.
Country crooner, Brett Eldredge was next up. Eldredge is one with the ladies as the crowd proved it with their screams as he hit the stage. With songs like “Lose My Mind”, “Wanna Be That Song” and “Drunk On Your Love,” Eldredge brought the arena to its feet. Brett was a great choice to put on this tour!
It was now time for the main event of the evening to make it to the stage, Luke Bryan. Opening with one of his latest hits, “Move”, it sure brought the crowd to its feet and kept them their for the rest of the evening. Rolling right into other hits such as “That’s My Kind of Night”, “Kick Up the Dust” and “Rain Is A Good Thing”, Bryan kept the momentum of the night going strong.
Luke even entertained the crowd with some great covers sure as Alabama’s “Mountain Music” and bringing out Brett Eldredge for Bob Seger’s “Night Moves”, even leading into Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”. Wrapping up with his hit from “Tailgates & Tanlines, I Don’t Want This Night To End”, everyone thought that was the end of the night as the songs suggests………but was it? After a short break and the crowd yelling and cheering, Bryan and his band returned to the stage to cap off the night with “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” and then ending the night with the hard hitting Metallica cover of “Enter Sandman”.
What a great night of 3 class acts from the Nashville music scene. Keep and eye out for the “Kill The Lights” tour coming to a city near you. You don’t want to miss this one!
