Kane Brown made an impressive entrance at the PNC Arena on Friday night. The curtain dropped and the country singer was lowered on a platform, tethered for safety. Brown started the night with “Bury Me in Georgia” as he waved to the crowd from the suspended rig. The arena went crazy as soon as Brown came into view. The entrance seemed appropriate as Brown’s “In the Air” tour is coming to a close in a few months.

Brown interacted with the crowd during and in between songs. He waved, smiled, and pointed so many fans. At one point, he walked through the crowd to a stage set up in the very front of the arena. The fans who had seats far from the stage ended up getting a front row, acoustic performance. Brown asked fans to identify themselves if they were military veterans. He spoke with a few and then dedicated “Homesick” to everyone who has bravely served. He noted that being away from family is not easy, especially for servicemen and service women.

The Georgia native pulled out all his party tricks during the show complete with a confetti cannon. He invited the members of Parmalee as well as Tyler Hubbard onstage for an energetic performance of “Famous Friends.” When it came time to sing 2023 CMT Music Video of the Year “Thank God,” Brown explained to the crowed that while his wife, Katelyn, who sings the duet on the track, is home because she is “about to pop in a couple weeks.” Brown is set to welcome his first son soon. Brown ended the night with “Like I Love Country Music.”

To kick off the night, Parmalee opened for Brown. They were fun and upbeat. The band even surprised the crowd by performing “Yeah!” by Usher. Tyler Hubbard took stage soon after and played all of his hit songs. Some songs he played guitar while center stage while during other songs, he interacted with the crowd. Hubbard utilized the size of the stage and was able to wave at fans in every corner of the arena. He helped build the anticipation for Brown to take stage.

The ”In the Air” tour continues with a little over a dozen stops left. Hopefully Brown will make it home for the birth of his son and can take some time off to spend with family.
