How many barre chords can Brad Paisley play if the barre chords are played at his onstage bars?
There will be no need for tongue-twisting questions when the hard rocking country-music star performs here Friday at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre. Paisley is embarked on the latest leg of his “Weekend Warrior Tour.”
His stage set includes not one onstage bar, but two, where some plucky fans will get to watch the show with drinks in hand.
You can also expect a mid-show tribute to members of the U.S. military and a musical homage to the late Prince (when Paisley sings “Last Time For Everything”). It remains to be seen if he’ll also do “Dang Me,” the 1964 classic Paisley covers on the upcoming all-star tribute album, “King of the Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller.”
Be sure to arrive early to hear Alison Krauss & Union Station mainstay Dan Tyminski, who contributed lead vocals to Avicii’s EDM hit “Hey Brother” and was George Clooney’s “stunt singer” on the bluegrass classic “Man of Constant Sorrow” in the Oscar-wining movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”
Brad Paisley, with Kane Brown and Dan Tyminski: 7:30 p.m. Friday. Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, 2500 Entertainment Circle, Chula Vista. $18-$62.50, plus service charges. (800) 745-3000. ticketmaster.com
