Luke Bryan (tour production) OC: …money’s worth. :38

“Talking about production, it’s nice to finally kind of plan up how you’re gonna have your show look and lots of lights around you, and being able to creat moments with lights, and have somebody on stage go and stand where the lights are doing this and that, and it’s nice to plan it all up. I mean, we’ve always, being an opener, you just go out there and the lights get turned on. But now, we can finally use all of our resources, all the people that are working so hard and make the lighting look even more special and make it look like a big show. And in the end, that kind of helps the overall aspect of fans really getting their money’s worth.”
