Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend one of the best concerts of my life. I went to see Luke Combs perform at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia with my friends and girlfriend. It was a night I will never forget.
We arrived at the stadium around 2 pm, living so close to the stadium it was easy in easy out, as we all piled into the truck to head to the parking lot . My friend had bought our tickets months in advance, as soon as they went on sale, but I had to pick mine up from stub hub. We were so excited to see Luke Combs live, as we are huge fans of his music. We love his catchy melodies, his honest lyrics, and his powerful voice.
We parked our car in the lot and joined the tailgate party. There were thousands of fans wearing Luke Combs shirts, hats, and even tattoos. The atmosphere was electric. We played some Flippy Cup, drank some adult beverages, and listened to some of Luke’s songs on spotify. We also met some other fans who shared their stories and opinions about Luke. Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic.
Around 6:30 pm, we saw some dark clouds rolling in and heard some thunder in the distance. We hoped that it wouldn’t rain, but we were prepared with our tents! We checked the weather app on our phones and saw that there was a severe rainstorm warning for our area. We crossed our fingers that it would pass quickly, and it did
The concert was scheduled to start at 5:45 pm, but there were four opening acts before Luke came on stage. We decided to skip the first two and head inside around 7:30 pm. We had great seats in the Upper level, close to the stage. We could see everything clearly and feel the energy of the crowd. We watched Lainey Wilson and Flatland Calvary perform some of their hits and warm up the crowd. They were both very talented and entertaining.
Around 10pm, the lights went down and the stadium erupted in cheers. Luke Combs appeared on a huge screen behind the stage, singing “Lovin on You”. Then he walked out with his guitar and band and continued the song live. The crowd went wild. He looked so happy and confident on stage, like he was born to do this.
He played a mix of his old and new songs, including some of my favorites like “One Number Away”, “Forever After All”, “Beautiful Crazy”, and “Beer Never Broke My Heart”. He also surprised us with some covers of classic songs like “Dust on the Bottle”, “Meet in the Middle”, and “Brand New Man”. He even sang his latest hit, “Fast Car”, which is a remake of Tracy Chapman’s song. He sounded amazing.
He interacted with the audience a lot, telling stories, cracking jokes, and thanking us for our support. He seemed genuinely humble and grateful for his success. He also brought out some of his friends and collaborators, like Brent Cobb and Riley Green, to join him on stage for some duets. They all had great chemistry and harmony.
The highlight of the night for me was when he sang “Better Together” for his encore. It’s such a beautiful and romantic song.
The concert ended around 1 am, but we didn’t want to leave. We stayed until they turned off the lights and kicked us out. We walked back to our car, still buzzing from the show. We agreed that it was one of the best concerts we had ever seen and that Luke Combs was a superstar.
I’m so glad I got to experience this concert with my friends and girlfriend. It was a night full of music, fun, love, and memories. I can’t wait to see Luke Combs again someday.
If you ever get a chance to see him live, don’t miss it. You won’t regret it.
