You don't know what you got until it's gone - and when Covid took away a bunch of shows in the last few years, country music fans went without something they loved so much - concerts.

And now that they're back, attendance numbers are soaring.

Last month when Morgan Wallen was in town, I thought that was the biggest SPAC crowd I had ever seen, but last night's crowd for Luke Bryan after a 3-year hiatus was pretty darn close!  I'm not sure there were 25K at SPAC last night like there was at Wallen last month, but it was close!

It's hard to believe that before last night, we hadn't seen Luke here in Saratoga since 2019, and this was after making annual appearances for nearly a decade.

And what a crowd it was; festive, pumped, excited, good-natured, and even better looking.

Did we catch you partying at Luke Bryan's "Raised Up Right Tour" at SPAC last night?  We hope so!

Here's what portions of the crowd looked like before gates opened at SPAC for Luke Bryan, Riley Green, and Mitchell Tenpenny - photographed by the best in the biz, Claude Sawyer Photography.
