East Rutherford - On June 2, country star Luke Bryan headlined MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, as part of his headlining "What Makes You Country Tour."
His opening acts included such gifted country singer-songwriters as Sam Hunt, Morgan Wallen and neo-traditionalist Jon Pardi.
When Luke Bryan took the stage, wearing his blue shirt and jeans, he was greeted with a raucous response from the East Rutherford crowd.
He immediately got the party started with "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," which is normally a song that he would normally conclude his shows with, but this time, it stimulated his fans for an awesome start. It was followed by "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day," where everybody was reciting the lyrics verbatim, and "I Don't Want This Night to End," which lyrically, was the theme tonight at MetLife Stadium. Bryan interacted well with his fans throughout the night, and they inevitably loved him in return.
Bryan took it back old school with "All My Friends Say," and then all of the fans lit up their phones for "Light It Up," which was a stunning sight to see at this iconic sports stadium.
A memorable moment from the first half of the show was when two young girls joined Bryan on stage and danced with him to "Someone Else Calling You Baby," which was quite precious.
"Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye" had a carefree vibe to it, and it was great to see his soft side on the optimistic and inspirational "Most People Are Good." Equally fun was Bryan debuting his new radio single "Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset" at MetLife Stadium, as well as the title cut of his latest studio album, "What Makes You Country."
"Kick the Dust Up" was spitfire and liberating, while "Strip It Down" was more sultry and sensual. The infectious "Drunk on You" became the quintessential singalong at the stadium, where blue and green lights dimmed from the stage. "Sing it to me," Bryan yelled.
Other fan-favorite tunes included "This Is How We Roll," his collaboration with hit country duo Florida Georgia Line and "Crash My Party." He was able to move his fans to tears, when he performed the melancholic ballad "Drink a Beer" solo onstage, in an acoustic fashion, where he paid his respects to anybody who had ever lost somebody.
After taking his fans on a "Roller Coaster" musical ride, the Georgia native closed his set with the catchy "Play It Again," and "Rain Is A Good Thing," which was the theme of this entire past week in New York City (due to the heavy rainfall).
The Verdict
Overall, Luke Bryan was able to put on a high-octane show at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. His energy level was contagious, which left the fans having a good time, and singing along with him. It was a memorable and entertaining night of country music. Luke Bryan's show at MetLife Stadium garnered an A rating.
