Gary Allan opens Tulalip Amphitheatre summer concert

leave a comment »

The Tulalip Casino and Resort kicked off its summer concert series Thursday night at its outdoor amphitheatre with country singer Gary Allan.

With a string of hits, Allan brought his talent for hard rockin country music to his fans for a great show on a perfect summer evening, and one thing was assured, his fans would not be disappointed.
With all the trimmings of a rock concert the band had plenty of light and volume to even fill the open air venue.

It was hard to tell if Allan himself was having as much fun as the fans, but when he played one of his familiar hits “Airplanes,” there was no doubt that he was there having the time of his life.

After the show in one of the casino lounges Allan and his band sat around and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere meeting some of their fans and Tulalip crew.

He wasn’t as tall as I thought, but maybe that’s because on stage his presence is larger than life but in “real life” he was a down-to-earth type of guy that’s happy to be doing what he loves.
If you’re not a country fan you might want to give his songs a listen, and then decide again- who knows, you may like it.
Don’t forget to keep returning to see, read, and comment on concerts from the Tulalip Amphitheatre. 
Coming up:  Jonny Lang,  The Beach Boys, The Doobie Brothers, and more
