Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum Concert

Yes, we know what you are all thinking.  Another concert?  2010 has been the year of concerts for us on our quest to immerse ourselves in festivals, concerts and everything mainland/Los Angeles.  We know that at some point we will be moving back to Hawaii and won't get to do this stuff there.  Let's be honest, why would a country music artist come to the islands of Hawaii?

As for the concert, it was once again a great time! Like our Sugarland concert, we travel a ways to see them, all the way to the San Manuel Amphitheater.  A small band called Love and Theft opened the show with a surprisingly great set list to kick off the night.  Once Lady Antebellum hit the stage, the crowd went wild.  From start to finish, they were not stop energy and talent.  When they sang "Need You Now," everyone was on their feet screaming and singing all the words; I think even the band was surprised how "country" Southern California could be.

As for the main act, Tim McGraw did not disappoint.  He rocked the house all night to about 25 songs.  Lucas and I were surprised that he still had a voice after belting song after song like it was his first. My favorite part of the concert had to be when he slowed down the house and talked to the audience about buy his first guitar.  He was 18 when he pawned his class ring for a guitar so that he could not become famous, but to "get laid."  How Funny!  Lucas' favorite part of the show by far was when Tim McGraw sang "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John and brought on a little girl in the front section to dance with him.  It was a great night!
