I just wanted to start out by saying OH MY GOODNESS!!! Can Brad put on a show!!! The visual technology that he had blew my mind! Never have I seen such a techie concert as his! If you love country music and every get a chance to see him, I STRONGLY recommend you do. Money well spent!
As must of my followers know I bought a Mega Concert ticket package at the beginning of the summer. Well this was the closing show of the season. Brad Paisley's Water Tour was the BOMB!!!
We started the day out at a smaller stage that would be featuring 3 lesser known, but still on the radio, singers. The gates opened before Clay got off from work, so he met me there when the big acts started later that night. I took my girlfriend, Brook, who had not been to a concert in many years. So I was so happy to see her excitement to be at the show. Clay arrived with my dearest best friend and her husband. Camille & Erik had not heard Brad's music before, but were more than happy to spend the evening with us. Now that's a TRUE friend!
I hope you enjoy just a few of the shots I took of my exciting day.
Oh yeah at the smaller stage we were on the front row. Brook had never been so close to a singer. It was so cute.
Brook made sure that NO BODY even came close to my foot or dare stand in front of me either. What a sweetie!
They are a husband and wife team. So cute to see them sing together.
Justin was a great opening act for the big stage performers. He has several hit songs and he played them all.
Brad has been playing the guitar since he was 8. He can really jam with the best of them too.
This cute puppet was part of his show. While he was singing "Celebrity" a video was playing on the huge HD screen behind his stage. This was the puppet in the video that played Brad. After the end of the song he had the puppet come out to greet the fans.
Now for this photo. The camera is NOT zoomed. I was like 2 feet from him as he made his way through the crowd. If I hadn't been trying to get a picture I could have grabbed his butt.
The only thing separating me from Brad was a railing and a bunch of security guards. I screamed so loud that I know he heard me. Way cool.The reason he was walking right by me was that he was going to a small platform in the middle of the arena. He sang a few songs but mostly talked to the crowd. He said when he was younger he could never afford the seats close to the stage. He made a promise to himself, that if he ever made it big he would perform a few songs to the people in the cheap seats. What a sweet guy.
It would not surprise me to see him someday excepting the Entertainer of the Year award. He has my vote!
