I love concerts, I’ll do whatever I can do to go to a concert that I’m like freaking out about … … which is why I went to the Eric Church concert. He is one of my favorite artists of all time, I HAD to go. I’ve been listening to him since my senior year of high school, I wasn’t going to miss him coming to town again. So I forked up a pretty penny to see him. OK so it wasn’t that much, but for a recent graduate that has three jobs, it was a pretty penny for me.
Overall the concert was great. It was on time, and the crowd was really into it. Here is the breakdown of each artists.
Kip Moore was the opener, I was very excited to see him because I love his album ” Up All Night”. He only played for 30 minutes but that is expected for the opening act. The really cool thing I loved about him, he didn’t play any cover songs. He played all of his songs. Too me, that is a big deal, especially since he’s not ” big” in the country scene just yet and he doesn’t have many songs. For someone opening for Eric Church, I’d say he did a pretty damn good job. He and his band were in tune, the crowd was really into it and most importantly Moore was excited to be on stage even if it was for 30 minutes.
To be completely honest, I like Justin Moore music, and I wanted to see him perform, but at the same time, I wasn’t thinking ” Oh my god, I have to see him”. But I love being proved wrong, because he is definitely worth going to see. Like Kip Moore, Justin Moore played all of his songs but the one thing I noticed about him. He was so humbled to be on stage, he did a sort of “Tebow” pose for about a minute or two but he was just literally on stage listening to people screaming and you could tell he was blown away by the crowd’s reaction. He also got the entire crowd to pull out their cell phones and light the whole arena which was really cool. Below is a picture to show you what I mean.
It was extremely bright in there and it was pretty cool to see everyone listen to him and his music. Overall, he was probably the best entertainer when it came to the three and he put on a good show. I would go see him again.
The man of the night : Eric Church:
I’ve never heard 30,000 people scream so loud in my entire life when Eric Church came on. When he came on the stage, it was as if the world stopped and everyone forgot their problems. I loved his part of the show very much. He had multiple backdrops for different songs, he had pyro, it was pretty cool to see it all put together on stage. I loved how he played his older songs from his previous albums, but the coolest thing about his show, he played almost every song on his newest album ” Chief”. I thought that was so awesome, nowadays, most performers just play all of their hits. I loved that he played “Country Music Jesus” and ” Jack Daniels”. I seriously thought it was so cool that his concert was literally based around his new album and that he actually played his songs of f of his album. Seriously, you have no idea how excited I am about this. Because there are a lot of good songs that are on albums, not just Church’s, but other artists in general, but you never hear those songs live because it’s not a “hit”. I like “hit” songs, but it’s nice listening to the music you never hear. Seriously , I can’t get over it! What was even cooler, you could hear the crowd sing every word of every song.
I also love how freakishly talented he is. He plays guitar, banjo and piano. I love a guy that can play piano. And of course he saved the best song for last ” Springsteen”, my summer song of 2012. I swear when he played piano and sang ” Springsteen” I got the chills. I could listen to him play it live every day of my life. Actually ,I had chills the entire concert that’s how good he was. Honestly, if you didn’t see him in Milwaukee or while he is on tour, you are missing out because he is one heck of a musician.
Overall, the concert was so worth going to!
