Zach Bryan had quite a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater last night.
He wound up having to cut it a little bit short, and also had to cut opener Charles Wesley Godwin (though he did bring him out later on to play a few songs), because snow was dumping on fans in the famous outdoor venue in Morrison, Colorado.
But honestly, it sounds like the freezing temperatures and buckets of snow made for a once in a lifetime show, as Zach and his band managed to run through some of his biggest hits for fans on the last stop of his American Heartbreak tour.
He also hoped to record a live album there, but hinted it may not be possible if the weather was bad enough, and from what I can tell, unfortunately, I don’t think happened, but I’m sure he’ll get it done at some point at another show next year.
And out of all the cool videos that have been coming in from last night, possibly the best is his performance of “Snow,” as snow was dumping down on fans and Zach lit up the stage with one of his many fan-favorite’s.
I mean, talk about an almost religious experience:
Zach also addressed an unhappy fan on Twitter who was upset the show had to be modified, saying that the parks department told him he needed to to cancel the concert earlier that morning, but he insisted that wasn’t possible because so many people already had plans to be there:
I’d like everyone to know the parks department cancelled the show this morning and I said ‘no, these people have paid a lot of money and travelled a long ways’ If you weren’t okay with it, don’t come to the next one. https://t.co/EIs7ngIGm5
He also thanked everyone for coming and sticking it out in a blizzard:
shooting from drunken hips here but there are no words to describe how beautiful it is that people sat through two hours of a blizzard for me. More words one day but for now I just want everyone to know how wild this entire ride has been. I see you, I’m with you and I love you
