Wrigley Field doesn’t let a little bit of rain get in the way of welcoming the Zac Brown Band back to the stage.

It’s been a busy few days at Wrigley Field. Green Day on Thursday, Lady Gaga on Friday and now on Saturday night it’s time for a bit of country with the Zac Brown Band. A little bit of end of summer rain didn’t keep the fans away as they filled Wrigley Field with cowboy boots and hats.

After Hunter Hayes warms up the crowd, it’s time for the Zac Brown Band to take to the stage. Zac’s big grin across his face for the duration of the show, proving that he is enjoying himself just as much as the enthusiastic fan base who are out in force.  

Whilst this is the Welcome Home Tour, they only perform three songs from the album which was released in May this year. They often perform a number of covers throughout their live shows and tonight is no exception. Tonight they cover Guns N Roses’ “Paradise City”, King of Leon’s “Use Somebody” and The Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post” to name just a few. 

The night is split into two different sets, and they perform a packed setlist – 26 songs to be precise. Keeping everyone engaged for the entirety of the show, the audience are on their feet, singing and dancing throughout the night. 

Stripping things back, the night is given a calypso feel with the acoustic “Start Over” which sees the whole band come front and center and sit down on the steps. It certainly aided in feeling like you were at a party with friends, beers in hand and dancing in the aisles with your partner.

The variety in ZBB’s catalog and sound is what aides their broad fan base, and keeps them coming back to Wrigley Field. This is the third time they have performed at the Friendly Confines which is certainly an impressive feat. 

The tour continues on throughout North America until the end of October. Be sure to check here for dates in your area.
