Over the weekend, Luke Combs performed at the Bank of America Stadium in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Playing there for the second night in a row, the severe weather almost ruined the entire concert for the 500,000 fans in attendance. After just one song, Luke had to tell the crowd “They just come in my ears and said I gotta get off stage for lightning.” He then went on to say, “Here’s the deal. Ain’t nothing I can do about it but I ain’t goin’ nowhere. If we gotta play ’till 5 o’ clock in the morning, that’s what we are gonna do.” The fans went nuts.
Earlier that evening, lightning had struck opener, Lainey Wilson’s, equipment and she had to finish her set completely acoustic. Riley Green, the other opener for the night, was able to play his set in its entirety with zero issues.
Luke and his band were finally able to come back out close to 11p.m. and put on a show for everyone who stuck around and waited. He also brought Riley back out to perform his duet, originally with Eric Church, “Does To Me,” off his album, “What You See Is What You Get.”
