Aldean is an American country icon, no exception
Aldean is an American country icon, and this tour was no exception. Along with Morgan Wallen and Riley Green, the We Back Tour brings a classic new age, hip dynamic to country music. The set starts off with high energy and rarely lets up with the exception of a few slow songs thrown in to put the crowd in their feels. Halfway through the show where most artists would go backstage to take a quick break, Aldean calls this trend out as “bull***” and says he will keep going for 2 hours straight. The crowd loses their minds. He keeps their attention for the entire set and the audience leaves wanting more. Impressive.
Aldean also throws in a perfect balance of songs from his new album and the classics that made him famous. A difficult balance to master but done quite tastefully. Graphics and lights were exceptional and the production quality lined up with the performance quite well. As an individual who actively chooses to listen to anything BUT country music, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the show. Truly a production for all music lovers.
