– Brad Paisley's Virtual Reality World Tour hit the road again playing three sold-out shows in St. Louis, Indianapolis and Cincinnati this past weekend.
Special guests on the tour are The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery with Easton Corbin joining the tour on select dates.
"The Escape" plaza area was well received with thousands of fans arriving early afternoon to enjoy games, contests, photo ops and performances on the "Virtual Opry" Stage by Kristen Kelly, Jana Kramer and Love and Theft.
On Saturday night after the Indianapolis show, Paisley surprised all the artists, bands and crew on the tour by reserving the Hamilton 16 IMAX movie theater in Noblesville, Ind. for a midnight showing of "The Avengers" in 3D. Before the movie started Paisley welcomed them all to the tour and gave a thank-you for a successful first week-end.
