The Southern country band made a flamboyant opening, playing “Keep Me in Mind” behind a cover, which blew off to reveal the band, a runway, several changing backdrops and enough colored lights to give one convulsions. Zac Brown Band played several of their No. 1 hits, such as “As She’s Walking Away” and “Highway 20 Ride,” to an enthusiastic crowd that often sang along. The live versions included extra instrumental solos. But when the band offered a high-energy cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” complete with added instrumental jams, the crowd really lost it. Guitarist Clay Cook even ran down the runway and slid on his knees, and got a standing ovation in return. ★★★★☆
