Luke Bryan… That’s My Kind of Night Tour

Luke Bryan – Heinz Field – Pittsburgh, PA

Luke Bryan brought his tour to Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday June 21st to play in front of a record crowd at Heinz Field. This was the first of four stadium dates on the tour. Cole Swindell, Lee Brice and Dierks Bentley were the opening acts on what was one of the grandest of stages I had ever seen. There were runways, bridges, a large center circle – you name it.

After great performances from the three opening acts, the crowd was chomping at the bit for Luke Bryan. Photographers were permitted to shoot the second and third songs of Luke’s set, which was brightly lit and fun to shoot. He moved around the enormous runways and stage so that everyone down on the field could get an up-close look.

With the size of the stage and the distance between Luke Bryan and us photographers, all photos were shot with my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 lens attached to a D4 body. ISO ranged anywhere between 100 and 4000 depending on where the performers were standing.

Thanks for stopping by. And make sure to check back often for more posts…

This was the first show that I was hired to shoot for Live Nation. It was an amazing experience to be down on the field at Heinz Field and shooting such a huge show. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship with Live Nation. Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Cole Swindell totally rocked the stadium from start to finish. I even got to use the press box to send off my images to the PR company before the show ended.
