  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Florida Georgia Line sells out Stroh for fall concert at BGSU

Florida Georgia Line performed to a sold-out crowd of 4,800 people Sunday night at the Stroh Center.

Opening artists included country singers Dallas Smith and Colt Ford as part of the “Here’s To The Good Times Tour,” which is to help support Florida Georgia Line’s debut album “Here’s to the Good Times” that was released in December 2012.

The crowd roared as the lights went out right before country artist Dallas Smith started the night with his set list. The roar continued deeper into the night with lighters and cell phones shining and waving in the air as singer/songwriter Colt Ford sang songs like “Dirt Road Anthem,” the co-written song for country artist Jason Aldean.

Zack Holbrook, member of the marketing team for University Activities Organization, said the Stroh Center is a great venue for the shows and the organization was not expecting such a huge turnout when the tickets were first put up for sale on Ticketmaster.

“This has been the biggest event [UAO has] hosted in a long time,” Holbrook said. “We were expecting a lot of people to come out and for it to sell out but not as quick as it did.”

Lights, glow sticks and waving arms were seen during Florida Georgia Line’s hour and a half set and the chants from fans were heard during each song.

Singer/songwriter Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line looked out to the crowd before a song.

“Bowling Green, we’ve been waiting for this night for a long time,” Hubbard said as he held the microphone.

The country band performed songs from its album “Here’s To The Good Times” such as “Get Your Shine On,” “Cruise” and “Dayum, Baby” while also mixing covers of other artists’ songs into the set like Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” and Akon’s “Nobody Wants To See Us Together.”

Senior Stephanie Douglas attended the show and said it was the long set list that made her enjoy the show.

“It was my first time seeing them and it was really great,” Douglas said. “I think having it at the Stroh worked really well for them.”

Vice-President of Marketing for UAO, Mackenzie Williams, said seeing so many people happy because of an event her organization hosted is a great feeling.

“People have been thanking us for picking the artists we did and I was actually optimistic when we were first choosing what artist to bring in,” Williams said. “It was so cool to see how loud it was and to hear all of the screams from everyone.”

Senior Jake Moore said he has always been into country music and Sunday night was his first time ever seeing any of the country artists perform live.

“It was great seeing them,” Moore said. “The atmosphere was so loud.”
