Paisley’s big splash

Country Concert Alert:

[singlepic id=61 w=320 h=240 float=left]Typically, when concert goers set out for a country concert, getting soaked is something to avoid but when country music star Brad Paisley returns to the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre on Friday, he’s hoping to make a big splash. With the help of Darius Rucker, Justin Moore and a bit of Mother Nature, Paisley just might get his wish, both figuratively and literally. Regardless of the weather, as there is a slight chance of rain in the forecast, there’s no doubt the much anticipated H2O Tour will quench Chicago country fans’ expectations.

With handfuls of number one hits and albums, numerous industry awards and one heck of sense of humor, Paisley is quite the country icon these days. Although Paisley might be that one big fish, along with Rucker who was once a blowfish, the H20 Tour boasts quite a school of hot and upcoming talent. In addition to the tour headliners, new swimmers, err. artists, Steel Magnolia, Josh Thompson and Easton Corbin set to take the first plunge on the tour’s support stages.

Tickets prices range from $29 – $59 and are available through Live Nation and Ticketmaster outlets. Gates open starting at 4PM.
