I suppose it’s time to stop referencing Darius Rucker by the time he spent in Hootie and the Blowfish. It’s the easy call, because I grew up in the 1990s and those songs were played ALL THE TIME. But this is 2013 and Rucker has grown into a star in his own right and with his own name and brand, as was evident at last night’s performance at the Paul Paul Theater. If the show wasn’t sold out, it was very close and there were large crowds gathered at various spots outside the Paul Paul, watching the show on the theater’s big screen.
FYI: You can actually get a decent concert experience out there. If you can find a good vantage point, the sound is really good.
So, what did you think? Does Rucker have the voice and charisma to a mega-huge country star? Will his next stop through town be at the Save Mart Center? Moreover, was this a good finale for the fair’s concert series? Share you thoughts in the comments and make sure to check out The Bee’s photo galleries for pictures from the night.
