Faith Hill & Tim McGraw Concert

On Friday I went to the Tim McGraw & Faith Hill 2012 Australian Tour concert.

For those of you who don't know, Tim and Faith are Country singers. New Country, not old style Country & Western. Faith has had a bit of a pop crossover as well (I'm sure just about all of you have heard "This Kiss" and "Breathe". Faith and Tim met many years ago, when they were support acts on a tour. They have now been married for a lot of years and have three daughters. They have toured together in the States, but this is their first time touring together in Australia. Adelaide was their first stop, and I bought tickets the day they went on sale.

The concert was awesome.

The opening act was a band from Texas who I had never heard of, The Eli Young Band. They were really good.

As for the main event, Faith and Tim are excellent showpeople, knowing just how to play to the crowd.

Faith came out first, singing some of her old songs, plus three new ones, from an album to be released later this year. When someone requested "It Matters To Me", which wasn't on her set list, she had to see if any of her band knew it, and when the piano player was able to play the music, she sang the first verse and chorus.

At the end of her set, Tim joined her onstage for one of their duets, and as she was leaving he told us we'd all just heard the best singer in the world, his wife. And it's probably a rehearsed line that he'll say at every concert, and a lot of people won't agree, but it was still really sweet.

Tim had a lot of energy on stage, joked with the crowd, played around, sang a mix of old and new songs. He ended his set with a song Faith sings backup on, and then they sang another duet.

 After leaving the stage they returned for one encore song. The song they sang, I Need You, is actually their one duet I don't care for, but they did sing it beautifully, and they seem to really enjoy and love each other, so the concert still ended on a positive note.

If I'd remembered in time I would have asked you to get me a t-shirt or mug. Did they have mugs?
Did Faith do If my Heart had Wings? that's one of my favourites.

no-one said...

They didn't have mugs. Just t-shirts, tote bags and stubbie holders. All I got was the t-shirt.
She didn't sing that one. It's one of my favourites too. With the exception of the final duet, I liked everything she sang.

did they sing let's make love???

no-one said...

No. I was hoping they'd sing it as their encore song but they sang I Need You.

We're going on the 12th .I know a lot of his older songs! My sister bought these tim macgraw tickets for me and my husband, she really wanted us to go to this concert with her, lol. I like Tim McGraw but I am not sure if I know much of his newest music...

I was never the biggest Tim Mcgraw fan but I wouldn't mind seeing his concert in Atlanta. That said, tickets here starts at $57 (before the inconvenience charges) so I'll be passing on that one.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this issue, it may
not be a taboo matter but typically people do not speak about
these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!
