Thomas Rhett has been a busy man on the Night Train Tour. He’s played in several stadiums as part of Jason Aldean’s summer tour, including two sold out shows at Boston’s Fenway Park and the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium in Athens.
“A stadium date, like we did in Athens, was crazy, especially being from Georgia,” Thomas said. “Playing at the Bulldog Stadium was something that I think every guy from Georgia has always wanted to do. We got to say that we did it first, and that was very cool.”
Thomas has also played a number of club dates between shows with Jason. He says there is no comparison between stadium and club shows.
“It couldn’t be more different,” he said. “The stadiums are so big that a lot of the time you feel disconnected from people that are in the back or way up in nosebleeds, but it’s still a blast to play somewhere that big and have all those speakers where it’s so loud in there. But compared to a club show, you can see everybody. It’s like a thousand-seater or something like that. It’s definitely more of an intimate show and you get to play longer.”
Thomas will be playing another stadium show this Friday when the Night Train Tour pulls into Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
