This past weekend the first shows of the Brad Paisley Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® were held, and though the weather was threatening in St. Louis, Indianapolis and Chicago it held off and the crowds enjoyed rain-free concerts. Over 62,000 fans came out to fill the amphitheaters and be entertained by Paisley and his special guests Chris Young, Lee Brice and The Henningsens. After the show in Indianapolis Paisley rented a local theater and treated the tour artists, bands and crew to a midnight showing of Ironman 3 in 3D at The Hamilton 16 theater in Noblesville, IN. This Wed., May 15 Paisley will be making return visits to ABC’s The Viewand CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman. The tour continues this week in Holmdel, NJ, Boston, MA and Hartford, CT. Live Nation is the national tour promoter.
