Luke Bryan made a stop in Bangor last week. He recently shared video from the show on his Instagram.

The rain didn't deter fans from packing the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor. Luke Bryan brought his long awaited Proud To Be Right Here Tour to town last Thursday. The "Waves" singer shared video of the crowd singing along to his hit, "I Don't Want This Night To End."

Luke said: "Almost 10 years later, and y’all still sing this one just as loud." The song has been used as an encore performance for the past few tours.

The renovations to the venue were apparent from the stage. It came down to the wire Thursday to get the venue ready for the first show in over a year. With less than a week before the concert season was to begin, large mounds of dirt could be seen over the fence around the venue. Pictures posted online by Dan Thornton of Thornton Construction showed the progress.

Over the weekend, the tour settled in for two nights in Guilford, New Hampshire, and a gig in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Luke's tour will continue down the east coast later this week, with shows in Maryland and New York.
