Eric Church Brings His Outsiders World Tour To Bangor [PHOTOS]
Eric Church brought his Outsiders World Tour to the Bangor waterfront Thursday night.
Church took to the stage and fired up the crowd with "Cold One," the first single off his latest album The Outsiders. Church would then bring the crowd back to 2011, to his Chief album with "Creepin."
A few songs deep into Church's set would also feature a duet from another Outsiders tune, "That's Damn Rock N' Roll." The song is originally sung with Lzzy Hale of the rock band, Halestorm.
I admittedly got all kinds of giddy when Church went all the way back to his very first album with "Pledge Allegiance to the Hag." That wouldn't be the only tune he'd play off his debut Sinners Like Me album. Nearing the end of his set he gave a stellar performance of "These Boots." An eager member of the crowd even threw his or her boots on stage. Eric being the awesome dude that he, is whipped out his Sharpie to sign them. No word on if the owner of the footwear actually got their snazzy kicks back...
The crowd was singing along the whole time, especially to his huge hit "Smoke a Little Smoke." He would later further ignite the crowd with a tune that perhaps is a little too real this morning for some audience members, 'Jack Daniels' kicked my @$$ again last night.
To wrap up the night, Church cleverly segued from a snip of Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing in the Dark' into his mega hit 'Springsteen.' The tune had the whole crowd singing and swaying lighters and cell phones. It was quite a sight!
The crowd demanded one more Church, and he was happy to oblige. His encore was a beautiful duet of "Like Jesus Does."
The Lone Bellow, an alt-country trio from New York, opened for Church.
Local country duo Lily + Lanie also performed before the show on one of the side stages. You can check out more from Lily + Lanie and other local artists who are part of our Live at the Q video series.
