Country singer Luke Bryan will bring his genteel country anthems to the Verizon Arena long about Oct. 17. Bryan performed at last night's Thunder on the Mountain up near Ozark, and judging from some of the Facebook comments regarding photographs of him, he's quite popular, particularly with the ladies.
More than 1,600 people "liked" his photo. "He's just one of the hottest most popular male country artists around," said one commentator, while another wrote: "Um Luke OMG! Your freaking beautiful! U can shake it for me any day!" Several expressed dismay that they were not able to attend the festival and see Bryan perform: "Wish I was there steadof working," and "Awwww man, I want to be there!" and so forth. Well folks, you're all going to get a second chance.
Opening the show will be Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 14 and they're going to run you $40-$66.
