Brad Paisley Brings World Tour To Bangor
Brad Paisley brought his Crushin’ It World Tour, which began May 15, 2015 in Camden, New Jersey, to the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on Friday night.
Paisley opened the show with “River Bank,” the first single from his most recent studio album, Moonshine in the Trunk.
Eric Paslay, who was one of two opening acts, the other being Cam, was invited on stage to help sing “Celebrity.” Following the song, Paisley helped Paslay celebrate his birthday by shoving a pie or cake in Paslay’s face. Paslay turned 33 on Friday.
While Paisley sang “Country Nation,” the fourth single from Moonshine in the Trunk, the massive screen behind Paisley displayed a combination of clips from the song’s music video, and footage of the New England Patriots. Naturally, the cheers from the crowd grew louder each time Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and other Patriots appeared on the screen.
Other songs performed by Paisley on Friday included “This Is Country Music,” “I’m Still a Guy,” “She’s Everything,” “Ticks,” “American Saturday Night,” “Beat This Summer,” “Perfect Storm,” “Old Alabama” and “Waitin’ on a Woman.”
Paslay’s set included hit singles like “Song About a Girl,” “She Don’t Love You” and “Friday Night.” The Texas native also played “High Class,” the first single from his upcoming second studio album.
Cam walked on the stage during Paslay’s performance to sing “Happy Birthday” to Paslay. The two also sang a duet, Paslay’s new song “Taking My Heartbeat Higher.”
Cam opened the show by performing songs from her new Untamed album. The singer’s set included “Burning House,” which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
The Crushin' It World Tour will make its next stop Saturday night in Syracuse. It's currently scheduled to wrap up March 12 in Bloomington, Illinois.
