Dierks Bentley Brought the Party from the Beach & Plane to the DTE Music Theater


Dierks Bentley

On Sunday night, Dierks Bentley played the biggest show of his career at the DTE Music Theater. The sold-out crowd of 15,000+ proved to Dierks that he’s finally hit “that level” of his career that he’s been dreaming about.

Over the years, Dierks has consistently put out hits and put on great shows. As his success climbed the past year, it’s evident that Dierks is exactly where he belongs. The same great guy is playing the same great show, only with all the bells and whistles that more success can bring… Along with great opening acts like Cam and Randy Houser.

Much like his new album, Black, the Somewhere One a Beach tour is literally and figuratively at a whole other level. Not only did the stage have multiple levels, but each song Dierks performed brought the crowd to their feet and a whole new level of excitement. From his tried and true hits like “5-1-5-0,” “What Was I Thinkin’?,” and “Free and Easy,” to newer hits like “Say You Do,” “Somewhere on a Beach,” and “Riser” along with bluegrass infused “Up on the Ridge;” the set was strong, and made stronger with new additions “Freedom” and “Black” off his upcoming album.

Add that to the cover of the Eagles’ “Take It Easy” which took to the back of the crowd and included openers Cam and Randy Houser; Dierks managed to throw a house-party with over 15,000 of his closest friends.

For the finale, he took the party to the skies with a theatrical rendition of “Drunk on a Plane” which included a plane, a very handsome and rugged pilot, a blow-up doll, a man in a swim suit and a bunch of media friends (including yours truly).

I cannot say enough about this show.  Dierks Bentley has always been a favorite to see live, but the Somewhere On a Beach tour is something special.  I dare say you’ll be seeing Dierks’ name on an Entertainer of the Year ballet soon.
