Kane Brown, Gabby Barrett Bring the Drunk or Dreaming Tour to Bangor
Country music fans gathered at the Maine Savings Amphitheater on Thursday night for a sensational display of talent as Restless Road, Gabby Barrett, and Kane Brown took the stage on their highly anticipated Drunk or Dreaming Tour.
The evening kicked off with Restless Road, a rising trio known for their soulful harmonies and engaging stage presence. They’re some super young and talented fellas. With their captivating energy, they wasted no time in setting the tone for an entertaining night of country music.
Following Restless Road, the spotlight shifted to Gabby Barrett, one of my favorites, regardless of genre. Barrett's undeniable talent and magnetic charisma were on full display as she effortlessly delivered hit after hit. Additionally, her husband, who played lead guitar tonight, can absolutely shred.
This is actually the second time that I’ve seen Gabby Barrett in concert, as she graced the stage in Bangor alongside Cole Swindell and Thomas Rhett back in 2021. Once again, she exceeded expectations and continues to elevate her performance with each passing moment. True to form, Gabby Barrett did not fail to deliver an unforgettable experience and was even able to fit in a costume change. She left us wanting more as she didn’t play her latest single “Glory Days,” however she did perform a couple of unreleased songs, one that was written by Luke Combs.
As the night progressed, anticipation reached its peak for the headliner of the evening, Kane Brown. Brown's undeniable charm and personality were matched only by his incredible vocal range, showcasing why he has become one of the hottest names in country music. Throughout the show, Brown displayed his engaging personality by dapping up members of the front row and taking selfies, making fans feel like an integral part of the performance.
Adding to the excitement, he shot t-shirts out of a cannon, always a crowd favorite. Brown incorporated a mini-stand-up routine into his set, sharing personal stories and captivating the audience with his humor. Between anecdotes, he showcased his versatile vocal skills with captivating acapella country covers. As the concert reached its pinnacle, Brown brought his wife Katelyn onto the stage, delivering a heartfelt performance of their song "Thank God." The duo's chemistry and genuine connection resonated with the folks in attendance. To conclude the night on a high note, Kane Brown wrapped up his electrifying set with the crowd favorite, "Good as You."
They’re all off to Fenway Park to continue their tour Friday night. Adding to the excitement, Darius Rucker will be joining their already stellar lineup.
Although, Kane Brown DID say that he’d rather be in Bangor than Boston.
Same, Kane. Same.
