New York - On April 1, 2013, The Band Perry performed at the Ed Sullivan Theater for “Live on Letterman” as part of a live concert webcast, for an intimate group of fans.
The trio is made up of Kimberly Perry, as well as her brothers Reid and Neil Perry.
“Get your hands high,” the trio said as they opened their show with their current single “Done” from their latest album “Pioneer.”
Backed by a four-piece band, they continued with “You Lie” and “Forever Mine Nevermind,” the latter of which they co-wrote with country mega-star Brad Paisley.
“Thank you so much,” Kimberly said. “Ya’ll having a good time out there so far? We are so excited to be here with you in New York City tonight. We are as happy as we can be to be here on’ Letterman.’”
It was followed by a rendition of The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey,” as well as soothing and tender version of “All Your Life.”
They paid homage to Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston by singing “I Will Always Love You,” with their own twist to their song, thus making it their own.
They also covered the Queen classic “Fat Bottomed Girls,” where Neil and Reid sang co-lead vocals.
“We want to send ya’ll home to East Tennessee,” Kimberly said. “That’s my anthem. Are there any free spirits in this room? This song is for you,” she added as they broke into the upbeat “I’m a Keeper.”
“Give it up for the band tonight,” Kimberly said. “Thank you so much. Let’s give it up for ‘Live on Letterman’ for having us out there. We hope you guys like our new album.”
They sang “Postcards from Paris” from their debut studio album, as well as their signature song “If I Die Young,” which they commenced acapella and their soaring harmonies are reminiscent to those of Little Big Town. Particularly impressive about this vocal is that they took their time while performing it and Kimberly was able to silence the entire room as the studio audience was in awe of her tremendous range.
They sang a cover of Fun’s “Some Nights” and they debuted a new song from their CD called “Night Gone Wasted.”
“We have one more for you. Stump your feet,” Kimberly said as they performed the album’s lead-off radio single “Dig Two.”
The Verdict
Overall, The Band Perry gave “Live on Letterman” an evening of fun country songs to remember. They put on a high-energy show that was well-received by the fans. Kimberly’s vocals were as strong and as captivating as ever and her brothers did a solid job on harmonies and on their instruments. If that were not enough, The Band Perry will also be playing the iHeartRadio stage on April 3 in New York City at the iHeartRadio Theater, presented by P.C. Richard and Son.
