Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real made their triumphant return to the Twin Cities on the heels of their summer 2021 release A Few Stars Apart.
The set was full of new and old material. Sizzling jams between Nelson between band members Logan Metz, Anthony LoGerfo, and Corey McCormick were frequent throughout the set. The set was tender in songs like “Just Outside Of Austin” “Georgia,” and “A Few Stars Apart.”
Nelson’s voice was as strong as ever as it rang through First Avenue’s Mainroom. It was a huge capacity upgrade from the last visit to the Fine Line in 2017. It’s great to witness his talent reaching so many more fans in Minnesota!
His guitar solos lit up the audience. It was captivating to hear the crowd screaming with excitement again after so many months of live streams and quiet nights. It was clear that everyone was anxiously awaiting a night like this. Nelson and Co. gave us a night to remember!
