Making their way through New York this summer, the Jason Aldean Six String Circus Tour recently made a stop at the Lakeview Amphitheater in Syracuse, NY.
Touring together with newcomers A Thousand Horses, this dynamic band is reminiscent of 70’s southern rock. Putting on an awesome set, they brought a bluesy and rock sound to those who were fortunate enough to get there early enough to see their set. This is definitely a band on the rise, and one you will want to check out next time they come to your area.
Following next was country music’s new favorite Thomas Rhett. Mentioning that this was his third appearance in New York, one thing he noticed was that New Yorker’s like to have a good time. That is correct Thomas, we sure do love our country music, and and with a full set of favorite tunes, a drum off that set the bar high, Thomas delivered the good time we New Yorker’s expect at our shows. Singing his ACM Single Record of the Year, “Die A Happy Man”, Thomas shared he wrote the song for his wife, Lauren, who was at home in Nashville. This dynamic young man has a fun loving personality that comes across in his performances, and the audience definitely joins in the fun.
As the black cloth fell, and the flood lights exploded, Jason made his way down the stairs belting out “Just Gettin’ Started” as he made his way to the primed crowd. Shaking hands and working the stage, fans erupted in noise. Only being allowed to see the first part of the performance, it appeared that the crowd would be in for one heck of a night if this energy continued.
As the summer breeze blew off the lake, and the fireworks exploded across the street at the State Fairgrounds, it was another amazing night that Central New Yorkers welcome amazing acts to the newly constructed Lakeview Amphitheater.
