There are many things I love about country music. One is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously and the top performers, for the most part, put on shows that are fun, engaging and honest.
Brad Paisley’s "Virtual Reality Tour" fits country music of today and tomorrow perfectly, and Milwaukee hosted its second stop Friday evening.
Featuring the touring solo debut of "American Idol" Scotty McCreery, The Band Perry, a drummer in Paisley’s band (Ben Sesar) from Milwaukee, lasers, lights, life-like imagery and more, the show was big, bold and flat-out fun.
I’d highly recommend you check out the tour on one of its next stops.
Here’s the set list from Friday:
Camouflage The World
Welcome to the Future
This is Country Music
Waiting on a Woman
Celebrity (with McCreery)
I’m Still a Guy
Thought I Loved You Then
Letter to Me
Mud on the Tires
Working on a Tan
I’m Gonna Miss Her
American Saturday Night
Alcohol (with McCreery and The Band Perry)
