Paisley kicks off H2O World Tour
Monday, May 24, 2010
– Brad Paisley's H2O World Tour kicked-off this past weekend in Virginia Beach, Va. and a sold-out show in Washington, D.C. More than 42,000 fans came out to the debut weekend of a tour with opening acts Darius Rucker and Justin Moore.
As Paisley took the stage in Virginia Beach on Friday evening, Paisley shouted, "You have no idea what we went through to get here tonight," as he burst into his current single and show opener, Water.
Later in the show, referring to the struggles of the past few weeks after the deadly Nashville flood, Paisley said, "It was emotional, it was heartache, and it took perseverance to get here tonight. Every member of my team made this a reality, and I am so proud of them. Thanks to you guys for making this difficult time that much more rewarding for all of us out here on the road."
The tour continues this weekend with shows in Kansas City, Mo. on Friday and St. Louis on Saturday.

Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
