article imageReview: Luke Bryan electrifying at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City Special

By Markos Papadatos     Dec 3, 2018 in Music
New York - On December 3, country superstar Luke Bryan performed a headlining show at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City exclusively for Citi/AAdvantage cardmembers.
A country heartthrob, Bryan opened his set on an infectious note with the upbeat "Country Girl (Shake It for Me)," and he continued with equally catchy singles as "Play It Again" and his latest single "What Makes You Country," which is the title cut of his latest studio offering.
As always, the country mega-star interacted well with the New York audience and even threw in a few jokes (about his Thanksgiving holiday) that were well-received by all, thus showcasing his warm and bubbly personality.
One of the most poignant moments of the night was his soothing rendition of "Most People Are Good," which had a heartfelt, optimistic vibe to it. "Crash My Party" was yet another fun singalong tune that simply stole the show.
His live version of "Roller Coaster" was pure ear candy. "Strip It Down" was more sultry and bluesy, thus showcasing his rich, rumbling vocals.
Equally fun and spitfire tunes were "Move" and "Kick The Dust Up." "Drink a Beer" really tugged at the audience's heartstrings, and rightfully so, due to its melancholic yet tender lyrics. He closed with his vivacious hit "That's My Kind of Night."
The Verdict
Overall, Luke Bryan was able to perform a rocking country concert in an intimate setting such as the iconic Hammerstein Ballroom, especially for Citi/AAdvantage cardmembers. He had the Big Apple crowd with him every step of the game, and he proves that he is one of the best live performers in the contemporary music scene. His live set at Hammerstein Ballroom earned five out of five stars. Well done.
