ACM and Grammy nominated vocalist Chris Young played his first-ever headlining concert at Music City’s Bridgestone Arena over the weekend, performing until after 11pm for a screaming, sold-out hometown crowd whose cheering reached 116 decibels throughout the more than 90 minute show. It was an unforgettable night for the Murfreesboro, Tennessee native who celebrated his 33rd sold-out show of the “Chris Young Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour” in an arena packed to the rafters with nearly 14,000 fans, friends and family.
“Young came in clear and strong, his distinct baritone sliding through the verses and chorus as fans sang along at a volume that rivaled his own…he’s not only making hit songs, he’s building a lasting career,” declared The Tennessean.
The night kicked off with an opening set by Warner Music artist Morgan Evansfollowed by Young’s Sony Music Nashville labelmate, Kane Brown. The capacity crowd was on its feet for Young’s entire 17 song show – which featured 9 of Young’s 10 chart-topping singles – and the audience received a special treat as friends Brad Paisley (“I’m Still A Guy”) and Cassadee Pope (“Think Of You”) joined Young onstage for surprise performances.
The RCA Records Nashville artist has had the opportunity to headline the city’s most esteemed venues, including Ryman Auditorium (2012) and Ascend Amphitheater (2015). Bringing his headlining tour home to Nashville and Bridgestone Arena has been a dream come true for the 33-year old.
Nashville’s headlining show closed a weekend of arena tour dates that also included a sold-out stop at Biloxi’s Mississippi Coast Coliseum. After a few days at home in Nashville, Young returns to the road with “Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour” dates in Charleston, SC (9/27), Greensboro, NC (9/28) and Philadelphia, PA (9/29).Buy Chris Young Tickets!
