Florida Georgia Line has named their second headlining tour after the title track from their forthcoming third album, Dig Your Roots. (Which will be released on August 26th, 2016 via Big Machine Label Group) Their sold out show on Saturday July 9th, 2016 in Camden, NJ at the BB&T Pavilion which they set fire to with their explosive and very impressive 17-song, about 2 hour set. They were joined by an all-star group of opening acts that included Kane Brown, The Cadillac Three and Cole Swindell, all of which were able to warm up the stage with extraordinary amounts of energy.
This Country duo known as Florida Georgia Line mixed some new material, with older material and also including some surprises in their setlist when they headlined the BB&T Pavilion. Their 17-song about 2 hour set contained everything all of their fans came for and some more, including tracks from their latest album, Dig Your Roots; As well as blending in some older tracks from their albums such as their second release of Anything Goes (2014) & Their debut album Here’s To The Good Times (2012). Beginning their set with a banger titled “This Is How We Roll” which immediately had the crowd off their feet and jammin’ along as the Duo comprised of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard descended down from above on colorfully lit platforms. Their very high-octane energy filled set was filled with hits such as above mentioned song “This Is How We Roll,” “Round Here,” “Anything Goes,” & “Get Your Shine On” before getting into some new material like title-track “Dig Your Roots,” & one of their newest singles which happened to already be known by all the fans in attendance “H.O.L.Y.” as they belted out the lyrics so loud the duo had to stop singing and just smile as the crowd serenaded them. The duo added in a couple snippets of some cover songs like Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds,” UGK’s “Ridin’ Dirty,” Toby Keith’s “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” Papa Roach’s “Last Resort,” House of Pain’s “Jump Around” and a two-song salute to the Backstreet Boys, who were Kelley’s first concert and Hubbard’s first album. The duo even showed off some old photos, much to the delight of audiences via their massive LCD screens filling the entire backdrop of their stage during this time. Speaking of the LCD screens, their production was beyond flawless and extraordinary filling the stage with hundreds of colorful lights, bright white spotlight illuminating the duo, pyro heating up the stage and making for a more rockstar feel, and even a cool diamond shaped stage where the fans filled all gaps between it for constant fan to band interactions. Ending their explosive set with their hit song “Cruise” which the crowd then erupted into screams and the lyrics poured out so loud your could probably hear the fans across the river in Philadelphia. With the connection and energy between the band and their fans coming to their show, it is evident why they continue to sell out shows night after night as well as keep topping the Billboard charts putting out hit after hit from all their albums.
I would definitely recommend checking out the Dig Your Roots Tour if it comes to your city cause its a huge headliner for the guys in FGL, as well as has some hit making and chart topping opening acts like Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, & Kane Brown who you will definitely want to catch, so make sure to get there early!
