Luke Bryan at the Bank of NH Pavilion

Photos and review by Dave Gilon


Oh where do I start, Luke Bryan was one of the very first country artists I ever had the chance to see live; and it also happened to be at the Bank of NH Pavilion. My seats weren’t quite photo worthy back then since I only had lawn seats. With that being said it was an amazing concert back in 2015 and it certainly did not disappoint this time around.

The first artist was an up and coming artist Mitchell Tenpenny. Although I haven’t heard much of his music, he put on one hell of an opening act. He was incredibly interactive with the crowd for an opener. Overall he was a fun experience leading up to Riley Green. Riley is a little bit more of a slow song kind of guy. His set was unfortunately a little short since I’m definitely a fan of his music.

Luke finally came on around 9pm and he fired up his set with the song that everybody was relating to that night, I Don’t Want This Night To End. The charisma that Luke has on stage is just wild to see up close. He ran through some of his best songs right off the bat and the crowd was all over it. One of the best covers I’ve heard was when he brought Mitchell back out to help him sing Good Directions by Billy Currington while playing the piano.

With his song Move, he pulled off some of his signature moves that all the ladies can never get enough of. The ladies in the venue couldn’t seem to contain themselves seeing him move those hips. Getting towards the end of his set he kept the energy high with his second to last song That’s My Kind of Night which lead up to his encore which was a perfect ending to an unbelievable night, Country Girl. Even though it was all country music that last song absolutely rocked the pavilion that night. All in all his shows are a must see whether you are a country fan or not.
