After an incredibly strong start on the main stage of Saturday’s C2C from Tenille Townes and Scotty McCreery, whoever followed those two was going to have a tough spot to fill especially keeping the already very warmed up crowd alive for Darius Rucker.
Brett Young more than delivered. He has such a great stage presence and his voice really suits the arena. His band were sensational. They played the right amount of loud and were just phenomenal.
Ticket to L.A went down a storm and the crowd danced with their partners or friends to In Case You Didn’t Know. A song that translates beautifully in a live setting, it was a very emotional moment for many. He truly kept the magic alive when he held out his microphone to the audience to sing along which they all did. I think Brett got a bit teary.
Giving the band a break, Brett played his favourite cover song of when he used to play bars ten years ago. A gorgeous acoustic version of Have a Little Faith in Me Brett showcased his talents of performing stripped back just as well as his energetic full band performances.
Mercy was powerfully beautiful live and Brett was vocally flawless. Mercy is the perfect country ballad which is so wonderfully emotive in a live setting. The roar of the crowd when he finished the song was insane and the stomping of the feet had never been so loud. What a moment to be a part of!
Brett kept the energy roaring for the remainder of his set to a full arena with a barely a seat unoccupied.
The whole crowd remained stood up rather than seated for Brett’s entire set showing how much of a strong fan base he has here in the UK. Everyone sang along to pretty much every song and those who weren’t singing along were very attentive.
We look forward to Brett’s return to the UK later in the year.
Here Tonight, well the crowd here tonight were incredibly loud singing along with him , it was absolutely crazy!
Closing the set with Sleep Without You, it was safe to say that Brett had set Darius Rucker up with a very energetic and eager crowd who were more than ready to keep dancing the night away.
