He’s no quarterback, but Luke Bryan scored quite the touchdown on Saturday night.
The country star set the all-time record for ticket sales at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, welcoming more than 50,000 enthusiastic fans who came out to show him some summer love.
Bryan, 37, was overwhelmed by the support. “Just had the most unbelievable night of my life,” he said of the historic show, which featured appearances by Dierks Bentley and tourmates Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.
His buddies shared their own thoughts on the historic date. “Pittsburgh y’all that were there know some special s––– went down tonight,” Bentley Tweeted. Added Swindell: “Thank you FANS for an unbelievable night. WOW we played @heinzfield boys!”
Bryan, a Georgia native who has sold 6.2 million albums and charted 10 No. 1 singles, continues on the road all summer, touring nationwide and finishing up in October with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Along the way he’ll pick up three other stadium dates: Boston’s Gillette Stadium, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and Chicago’s Soldier Field.
