Easton Corbin at Sandy Amphitheatre 7.31.2012



By: Jody Howcroft


Country music artist Easton Corbin brought his high energy concert to the Sandy Amphitheatre on Tuesday July 31, 2012. The Sandy Amphitheatre is an outdoor venue with an amazing view. The amphitheatre has a capacity of 2,750 and there is no doubt, Easton had fans packed all the way to the back covering the lawn with blankets and chairs.


Before the show began, his tour manager walked around the arena and surprised random fans with backstage passes to meet Easton Corbin. The show then started off with the local radio station Z104 getting the crowd to their feet chanting, "Easton Corbin!! Easton Corbin!!" to welcome him to the stage. 


Easton kicked off the show playing, "Feels A Lot Like Love" then his first radio single, "A Little More Country Than That," Easton was welcomed by continuous applause and cheers. Giving the fans a sample of what is to come from his second upcoming album, All Over The Road due out September 18th, 2012; Easton performed his lead-off single, "Lovin' You Is Fun" and the title track, "All Over The Road."


Dressed casually in a blue plaid shirt, cowboy boots and belt buckle, Easton owned the stage with his guitar playing and dance moves. He brought fans all the way in the back on the grass to their feet. During the middle of the show, his tour manager went up to the grass area and picked a few lucky fans to upgrade their lawn tickets to chair seating up closer. 


Easton paid respect to artist he looked up to by playing covers by Brooks and Dunn, "Put A Girl In It," along with "Watching Airplanes" by Gary Allan and the cover "Don't Happen Twice" by Kenny Chesney.  Easton wanted to bring some of the islands to Utah by playing "A Lot To Learn About Livin" and mixing Bob Marley's "Stir It Up" in the middle of the song and having the crowd sing along.


Coming back onstage for the encore, Easton closed the show by bringing everybody to their feet and playing George Strait's cover "It Just Comes Natural,"  Alabama's cover, "You're Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have A Fiddle In The Band)" then "Litter Sister" by Elvis.


After a 75 minute set, Easton welcomed every fan to meet him by the merchandise stand. He happily signed autographs and took pictures for over an hour to thank everybody for their support.
