Let’s relive the best weekend with 9 incredible backstage photos from Luke Combs’s Philadelphia shows. I can’t believe that they are over already! Luke has been in Philly since 2019 when he performed at the Wells Fargo Center and Morgan Wallen opened for him. I remember before Luke Combs even announced his tour to the public, I was sitting in a meeting back at the station in the winter and finding out that Luke was not only going back on tour but that he was going to be in Philly on my birthday! The way I gasped. Ha. Then Luke announced that he was going to be doing a Friday night show, too! So that means Luke Combs is in Philadelphia for a whole birthday weekend. Luke even hosted a free tailgate on Saturday for all of the fans. It was from 2 PM – 5 PM and 3 new country artists played the tailgate; Tyler Dial, Royael Lynn, and Wyatt McCubbin.
I was very grateful that I was able to go both nights. My friend had tickets for Friday night’s show and then I was going with the radio station on Saturday. I thought it was crazy at first because it was going to be 100 degrees outside, but it’s Luke Combs and I live close so why not. Now I had no idea it was going to storm on Friday and that Luke wouldn’t go on until 11:20p, but guess what, almost everyone stayed. I was like, “Am I really going to stay for this”? I said to myself, why not! Seeing Luke Combs perform in the rain on a summer night, why not? I also got to ring in my birthday during the concert while Luke was performing “Fast Car”! I mean what a moment. I also tied a garbage bag around my head so I would ruin my birthday blowout and it really did hold up nicely. I’m also glad I went both nights because even though he didn’t sing “Tattoo on a Sunburn” (WAH) on Friday he did sing “Still” and “Dive” which are two of my favorites and he didn’t perform those on Saturday night. And let’s not forget how Luke wore an Eagles hat on both Friday and Saturday nights. Such a nice touch.
