Concert Review Time
Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out this review of The Dangerous Tour featuring Morgan Wallen, HARDY, and Kameron Marlowe.
I know I have been beating ya’ll over the head with all things Morgan Wallen and company lately, but this will be the last thing on it for a while. Unless something major happens.
First a big thank you to Live Nation and Morgan Wallen’s team for having us out to the show on Thursday August 11, 2022 at the Xfinity Center (aka Great Woods) in Mansfield MA. It was a great night and a nice 20K sell out for the guys. Love to see a country show sell out here in Boston.
We got there a little early for some tailgate cheese burgers and some Miller Lites, because who doesn’t like to start a show that way? After a couple burgers and libations, we made our way to the box office to pick up the tickets. Now, we never know where the tickets will be. For Tim McGraw we were in Section 8, small club shows we typically have General Admission which honestly, we could be sitting on the moon and we are just so humbled and appreciative of the opportunities to do all of this. We get to the box office and we find out it was Morgan’s team that issued the tickets, so a big thank you there! The seats were incredible as you can see from the photos below.
I had to get there in time for Kameron Marlowe. I’ve been a big fan of his for a while now and although some things fell through with him this past weekend. We won’t hold it against him. We’ll still give a good review because it’s what is deserved. I am teasing brother, but in all seriousness incredible to see him live.
Marlowe played 8 songs in total. He played all of the songs most people would know if they listen to country music from ‘Sober as a Drunk’ to his biggest hit to date ‘Giving You Up’. Every song and every line were delivered with ease and excitement. It was nice to see such a great talent get the chance to open for such a huge tour. I see Kameron really exploding in the next year or so. Kameron is going on tour this fall and if he’s coming near you, he is a must see. I would list out the setlist like I am going to do for the others, but I can’t find a reliable source on it, but if you have it, please let me know and we’ll update the article!
Now, do I need to tell you much about HARDY? Everyone knows my new found love for this dude. We saw him back in April acoustic and he killed. The expectations were high here. Needless to say, he did not disappoint. Not one bit. He played all the songs you would expect as you can see from the setlist below:

This is a solid set by all means! I am not sure he could have picked a better 11 songs. Some songs I love were left off like ‘ROCK’ but it is what it is. Can’t win them all. HARDY’s full band energy is unmatched. Absolutely unmatched. This dude brings it every time to every show. He may be the best song writer in the game right now. He could have played two hours and never would have been upset about it. He may have stole the show….shhhh wait, don’t be mad….keep reading and I will explain.
After HARDY, we had the man himself, Morgan Wallen. I have to say, it was great to see Morgan on this huge tour. His set was well orchestrated and the song choices were stellar. He played for about 2 hours as well, which is another thing you don’t see much anymore. Most headliners give us an hour and a half if we’re lucky. From the looks of it, the set was the same every night, which is fine. I get it. The set that night was as followed: Thanks to setlist fm for the setlists.
- Up Down
- Still Goin Down
- You Proof
- Silverado for Sale
- 7 Summers
- Country A$$ Shit
- Somebody’s Problem
- Chasin’ You
- Sand in My Boots
- Cover Me Up (Jason Isbell cover)
- Thought You Should Know
- Flower Shops (Ernest Keith Smith cover)
- He Went To Jared (with HARDY)
- This Bar
- Don’t Think Jesus
- More Than My Hometown
- The Way I Talk
- Whiskey Glasses
As you can see, solid solid setlist for sure. I would have liked to have seen a little more variety in the set, but when you have the biggest album in the universe, you play what’s off of that album. Makes total sense to have the setlist this way, I am just being a shit.
I mentioned earlier, that HARDY stole the show. He did, and I say this because one I think Hardy is a better song writer and overall better artist. I like Morgan Wallen, don’t get me wrong, as any of you know who follow us, knows, I am big Team Wallen guy. My biggest gripe and again, can’t do anything about it, is that this exact show is all over YouTube. You could watch the whole thing start to finish and not see a different show. I don’t understand the folks that go back-to-back nights of tours like this because that’s exactly what you get. I am not saying it’s bad, I just wish there was a little variety night after night, but I get you can’t do that in a lot of cases on a major HUGE tour like this. I don’t take that away from the performance at all, the performance and show were incredible.
Would I see Morgan again? Absolutely! Would I rather it in a smaller venue, yup! But that’s also my preference too. It will be a long ass time til we see Morgan Wallen in a small venue show and that’s amazing for him and a testament to his talent and success. I look forward to seeing him again and again.
Thank you again to his team and to Live Nation and of course all of our friends at the Xfinity Center Mansfield.
Till next time ya’ll Cheers!
