Lily Collins Goes Country for Luke Bryan's Dodger Stadium Show
The actress and her friends even started a dance circle in the crowd.
Apparently Hollywood has got a little country in it.
Luke Bryan performed Saturday night to a sold-out crowd at Dodger Stadium, the first country singer to headline the venue. Rock royalty Lily Collins was among those to attend the historic show — and had a boot-scootin' good time.
Wearing a white tee, fitted jeans and a hat (occasionally swapping out his baseball cap for a Dodger cap or cowboy hat), Bryan sang “Most People Are Good,” “Sunrise Sunburn Sunset” and “All My Friends Say,” during which he had a cooler of beers onstage and tossed the cold drinks to his friends in the crowd. He also did a “birthday tequila shot” to celebrate his birthday month of July.
During Bryan’s performance, Collins, whose papa is singer-songwriter Phil Collins, hit Verizon Up's stage-side VIP area (part of Verizon's rewards program that also offers meet-and-greets). Two of Collins' friends started a dance circle, pulling in young fans and parents alike to groove to Bryan’s country throwbacks. Collins herself even jumped into the circle to dance with a gal pal; her country look included denim shorts, a black backless halter top with a string tie, booties and a grey cowboy hat.
Just feet away, Bryan cozied up to the crowd, polling the audience as to who were teachers (calling them “crazy”), who were nurses and who were party-crashers, leading into the number “Party Crashers.”
The performer delivered “Good Directions” with his guitar at the microphone stand, stopping in the first verse after “She had Hollywood written on her license plate” to ask if anyone really has Hollywood on their license plate, given the Los Angeles locale.
At the end of the night, Bryan delivered one of his biggest hits, “Play It Again” — and the audience wished they could.
