For every artist, playing in a city such as the Big Apple brings its own charm and unique feelings whether they are playing a small showcase at Rockwood Music Hall downtown or in the case of LANco, Brothers Osborne and Dierks Bentley on Saturday night, their very first sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. The Mountain High Tour made its second trip to the metro area on Saturday night, the first being back in May where we attended the show at PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey during the opening weekend.
Back in June during his album release week, Bentley told fans at an intimate event “We’re playing the biggest honky-tonk in the world, MSG, that is right at the top of my bucket list, bigger than any dream I could ever dream.” His dream came true, selling out the arena and giving the venue one hell of a show.
Earlier today when we posted this incredible photo on Instagram, fans told us their favorite parts of the show. @acolaluca1108 commented “Brothers Osborne playing “Ain’t My Fault” was fantastic especially when the whole crowd sang along” while @kooocheee said “Best concert I went to this summer! Danced the whole time! “Burning Man” was amazing”.
Some other highlights that fans commented including @gdow68 mentioned “Hot Country Knights was hilarious!!! Whole show was just amazing!!” and @rachel.elena said “The whole show was amazing! You could tell how huge playing the Garden was for all of the acts!”
The biggest fan favorite moment of the night was, however, the encore when Bentley takes the stage dressed in full pilot gear to end the night with his smash hit “Drunk on a Plane”. @cassie736 said “Amazing show!! I loved “Drunk On A Plane” and how he dressed up in the pilot outfit”.
At one point in the night, Bentley listed all of the smaller venues that he has played in Manhattan including Joe’s Pub, Hammerstein Ballroom, Irving Plaza and even some places in Brooklyn “…just to make sure we crossed off all of the boxes and every step on the way to the biggest honky-tonk in the entire world Madison Square Garden, when I say we, I mean we, because you guys have been there for us all along the way”
New York City fans were happy to have The Mountain High Tour make Madison Square Garden one of its stops before the tour is over later this month. For remaining tour dates head to: https://www.dierks.com/tour
