The 15 In A 30 Tour played to a SOLD OUT crowd at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater last night, and it was amazing! The tour started June 1st in Cleveland, Ohio. Chicago was the 10th stop and according to Maren Morris it was the best weather they've had so far. This is Sam Hunt's first Headliner tour and he killed it! Sam Hunt made his entrance with Leave The Night On. The crowd would not stop singing and dancing, it was a giant party. During Hunt's second number, House Party, he stepped down from the front of the stage and made his way through the frantic crowd giving out high fives all the way as his security team ran to keep up. (So. Cool.)
Sam slowed it down a little during the middle of the show where he just talked and played a little acoustic guitar, and described his musical roots and how it’s always been country and R&B that has influenced him the most. Hunt loves the lyrics and story- telling element when he does his writing and you can definitely tell when he is up on stage and singing from his heart. People connect with music and Hunt likes being able transfer emotion from himself to someone else in the audience.
One of my favorite parts of the show was when Sam brought out all his tour mates (Ryan Follese , Chris Janson and Maren Morris) to do a cover of Outkast’s Hey Ya! This was awesome! Chris Janson came out on a skateboard, and the crowd sang along with perfect timing.
The whole show is filled with an amazing amount of energy from each act! I think what makes concerts so much fun is the artist's ability to give their all to their fans at every show they perform at and we, the fans, are what keeps them going.
