Wantagh - On May 31, The Band Perry performed at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater as part of Rascal Flatts’ “Live and Loud” tour. They shared the stage with Cassadee Pope, the winner of the third season of “The Voice” and opened for Rascal Flatts.
They commenced their show with their current single, the spitfire “DONE.”
“How are you doing New York? Kimberly asked the crowd. “Welcome to the show everybody.”
It was followed by “You Lie” and “Forever Mine Nevermind,” which they co-penned with Brad Paisley.
“How are you doing for a Friday night?” Kimberly asked. “Let’s give it up for our friend Cassadee Pope. Under this gorgeous sky, we get to be one family this evening.”
They followed it up with a cover of The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” and “All Your Life,” which featured Kimberly on acoustic guitar; moreover, Kimberly paid tribute to country queen Dolly Parton and the late Whitney Houston by singing the classic song “I Will Always Love You.”
They also performed “Postcard From Paris” and they covered Queen’s “Fat Bottomed
Other noteworthy songs on their setlist included “I’m a Keeper” from their latest studio album “Pioneer,” a cover of Fun’s “Some Nights,” as well as the gorgeous ballad “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely,” which certainly has the potential to become a future radio single in the future.
They continued with their Grammy-nominated hit “If I Die Young,” which was written by Kimberly Perry, and they closed their set with the electrifying lead-off single from the new CD “Better Dig Two.”
“Thank you so much Jones Beach,” they said prior to leaving the stage.
The Verdict
Overall, The Band Perry gave the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater a memorable evening of modern country music. This marks their third consecutive time performing in the New York area in a two-month period and it is evident that Long Island loves The Band Perry and their new music. Previously, they performed for “Live at Letterman” and at the iHeartRadio Theater and they proved yet again that they are at the top of their game musically. The Band Perry deserves two big thumbs up for a job well done.
