Dallas Smith Concert Review
Dallas Smith LIVE in Moncton
Saturday night is a night meant to party! So, when your party involves country music artists Dallas Smith, Andrew Hyatt and Cold Creek County, it tends to get a little rowdy!
From the moment I walked into Casino New-Brunswick, I could sense the hundreds of die hard country fans were primed and ready to have a good time.
As the night began, Cold Creek County took the stage to warm up the crowd for the headliner. They had plenty of fans in the mood and got things really going by the end of their set.
A break in the action allowed fans time to refuel and the roadies to switch over the stage. About 30 minutes passed, then the lights went down (one of my favourite moments at a concert). The moment all fans had been waiting for was here... It was time for Dallas Smith to hit the stage!
Dallas started his set with his top charting single "Side Effects" and had the crowd singing and having a great time from the moment he sang his first note.
This is truly the first time I've seen an artist involve his fans so much during a performance. From the moment Dallas came out on stage you could tell he had a genuine connection with his fans.
Dallas spent the night singing hit after hit and made sure everyone was having a blast. He took the time to take selfies with fans, grabbing every phone thrown to him on stage. The energy in the venue was incredible. Dallas sure knows how to work a crowd!
The excitement kept going throughout the night as Dallas had a few surprises for his fans. Midway through his set, Dallas pulled up country pal Andrew Hyatt to sing Hyatt's hit single "On Me". The crowd went wild as soon as Andrew hit the stage, a very nice surprise indeed.
Both artists were very energetic and kept the crown engaged throughout the performance. That was not it for surprises. Later on in the evening, Dallas announced that he wanted to invite another of his country pals out on stage. This time, it was Shawn Austin who took the stage! Austin is best known for his song "Paradise Found".
Dallas continued his kick-ass set for the remainder of the evening and also had a few "Flashback Moment" surprises that I'll keep a secret until you get to see the show! Lucky for you, there are still lots of shows left on the "Side Effects Tour".
I highly suggest you check out the show as you'll have an incredible night! Special guests joining Dallas on the second leg of the tour include; Lauren Alaina, James Barker Band and Michael Ray! (Scroll down to find a show near you!)
I'd love to finish this post by thanking all of Dallas' team for hosting me on Saturday and for their generous hospitality! I had such an amazing evening and I can't wait for you all to see the show! Check out some of my pics from the show below!
