The night starts off at the PNC Music Pavilion with Tim McGraw 2022 tour. Tim McGraw is a Grammy Award Country Singer and is fresh off his appearance in Paramount hit TV show 1883. McGraw released 16 albums and has almost three decades worth of hits. He brings Brandon. The weather was cloudy, hi 70’s with spotty rain. Fans started getting there early anticipating what the night was going to bring. With three supporting acts there’s plenty of music for everyone. Davis, Alexandra Key and Russell Dickerson along for supporting acts.
A large “T” shaped runway extended out from the stage, it gave the fans plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with the artist. A large LED screen in the back behind the drums and plenty of lights and lasers.
Finally, its time the lights go down. Tim McGraw’s band made their way to the stage as they start playing “How Bad Do You Want It”. McGraw comes out strutting across the stage. He’s wearing a black cowboy hat, brown short sleeve shirt, jeans, and a brown belt with an oval shaped belt buckle.
McGraw sounded great and so did his band. They were full of energy. I was very impressed. McGraw is a master at firing up his fans and mixing up his set list. Throughout the night McGraw interacted with the audience, he would go from one end of the stage to the other end bending down grabbing his fans hands. McGraw sings some of the fan’s favorites like “Shotgun Rider”, “Live Like You Were Dying” and “Don’t Take The Girl” as he throws out guitar picks to the audience. Each band member took time to come up front out on the “T” and play. McGraw also took time to sign a cowboy hat that was handed to him from a fan.
I’m sure they are over the moon about that. The show is going good as the LED screen changes throughout the night and shows different video clips. The light and laser show changing out with every song. As the shows winding down McGraw brings out the opening acts. They all gather at the end of the “T” to sing and bow to the audience. What a night it has been. McGraw did an Elton John cover “Tiny Dancer” as one of his encores.
All in all, McGraw was amazing, very inspirational. His songs are very open about his lifestyle. The fans left there with smiles on there faces.
