NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, touted as the “consummate showman” by the Boston Globe, repeated his stadium success story as he performed before a sold-out crowd at Gillette Stadium last week. The “Sunset Repeat Tour” concert was Luke’s fourth appearance in the home of the six-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and also is his most-played stadium. His career stadium headlining concerts now tally 35.

Special moments during the show included Luke’s 2019 touring mates, Cole Swindell and Jon Langston, joining him onstage to perform the 1995 hit “Dust On the Bottle” and the evening’s special guest, Brett Young, appearing with Luke to perform “Sweet Caroline.” One of the night’s high points came when Patriots favorite Rob Gronkowski strolled onstage, playing catch with Luke and sending the stadium crowd into fever-pitch cheers.

Before the concert Luke, Cole, Jon and Brett spent some time with NBC’s “Today” Show for a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to perform in one of America’s most revered stadiums and Luke’s journey to a stadium headliner. The story will appear on the Tuesday edition of “Today.” Later that week, Luke will perform on NBC’s “Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular.”

The “Sunset Repeat Tour” picks back up on July 11 in Saratoga Springs, New York, kicking off four consecutive nights in the Empire State. The Leesburg native will then swing South for a series of shows in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Florida. Those shows include:

♦ July 19 — Orange Beach, Alabama, The Wharf Amphitheater;

♦ July 20 — Orange Beach, Alabama, The Wharf Amphitheater;

♦ July 21 — Brandon, Mississippi, Brandon Amphitheater;

♦ July 25 — Birmingham, Alabama, Oak Mountain Amphitheatre;

♦ Aug. 1 — Jacksonville, Florida, Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena;

♦ Aug. 2 — Tampa, Florida, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre; and

The tour continues through the summer, taking Bryan and company across much of the U.S. The Sunset Repeat Tour wraps up at Ford Field in Detroit on Oct. 25.
