Opener Kip Moore. I only knew the two songs Beer Money and Truck. He was entertaining and energetic. He ran out into the crowd causing havoc for the security. He had a guy he met in a bar come up and ask his girlfriend to marry him. She said yes. He was fine as an opening act but I am not familiar enough with his songs to give a fair opinion. He does interact with the crowd well telling stories and pumping them up.
Next Justin Moore. I have seen him a couple of times. He is pretty good. He seems to go over well with young camo hat jeans and boot males.
How I got 2 b this way
Till my last day
Get by with a little help from my friends (cover)
If heaven wasn't so far away
Bait a hook
All my rowdy friends/Hank it
Small Town USA
I could kick ur ass (tells story that he usually doesn't play this but noone from the Blood Sweat and Beers tour has complained)
He has so many other good songs he could play that I would have rather heard Flyin Down a back Road, What if I run out of Honky Tonks etc. Just my opinion. I guess he goes with what he thinks will pump up the crowd.
On to the headliner Eric Church
Eric rises up from the middle of the stage in a cloud of smoke signature sunglasses and ball cap I am in the pit so I have a great view (This is a bad ass way to enter) He sings first verse of Country Music Jesus by himself with guitar and then the band kicks in (awesome)
Country music Jesus
Guys Like Me
Hell on the Heart
Hag (American Flag Backdrop comes down)
How bout u
Over when its Over (this sounded kinda weird i miss the female duet part)
Gettin Stoned ( lots of back drop changes a lot that have Pot Leaves)
Jack Daniels (crowd throws little airplane bottles of Jack eric and guitar player each take one and shoot it)
(also adds a verse of livin part of life from the old days in bars he says.)
Hung over and Hard Up
Creepin (Eric plays banjo also i must add the smoke lighting and pyro are amazing and greatly add to the show)

Loves me like Jesus Does
Sinners Like Me
Luv ur Luv/Danny's song

Country Boy Can Survive/Homeboy
Smoke a Little Smoke
Springsteen/Born to Run (tells story bout how this songs reminds him of being 16 at an Ampitheatre for the first time and how the "melody becomes a memory" which what the songs is about)
The show was awesome and Eric was his boot stomping fist pumping chest beating self. It just doesn't get any better than this folks!
BTW, thanks for the nice review of the show and setlist :)
No kidding, you noticed that too @ ppl not knowing the songs. You have got to be kidding me...they left?! That is unreal but explains why after the VIP thingy I was able to make my way to front row of pit.
That is awesome him taking your sign and boot. I also found a lot of people in the pit that were there for Justin Moore and did not know many of Eric's songs or just left all together. (unreal)
I was there too, Show was terrific tho, when is it not??...Loved literally every second of it, esp. when it was my boot and sign he took to sign! I found some ppl in pit did not know alot of the songs, but eveyrone had grt things to say about the show. I did VIP and he played Chevy Van & Before She Does.
