Old Dominion takes requests, spreads good vibes in concert

Country band Old Dominion performed at PPG Paints Arena on Friday.

The Old Dominion No Bad Vibes tour definitely lived up to its billing on Friday at PPG Paints Arena.

The band’s lead singer, Matthew Ramsey, was very involved with the crowd and took a different approach with the show than most other artists do. Old Dominion took requests: Ramsey would see a sign with a particular song on it, the band would take a few minutes to prep, and then the song was performed flawlessly.

They played songs old and new, including their newest song, “Memory Lane,” which will be the title track of their upcoming album.

The crowd was smaller than many other concerts featuring well-known acts, which is surprising given how many popular, well-known country songs Old Dominion has. They play songs like “Hotel Key” (2017), “One-Man Band” (2019), and “Break Up With Him” (2015). 

Each of those songs are consistently played on radio stations and are on a lot of the top country playlists, so it is surprising that Old Dominion isn’t on the same popularity level of artists like Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney. 

Nonetheless, Old Dominion put on a great concert, and their music is worth a listen for country fans. 

Opening act Priscilla Block, meanwhile, also was a great performer.

Her charisma made everyone fall in love with her and her songs. She got a lot of laughs from the crowd and likely gained a lot of new fans.
