We attended the Wheels Up Tour, performed by Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt, at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. Opening the concert, Sam set the mood with an energetic performance. His single, "Leave the Night On," captured the audience's attention as he sang his way across the stage and into the stadium seats to interact with the fans.

Platinum-selling singer Hunter Hayes performed next. Filled with exuberant audience sing-alongs and rock-and-roll infused guitar solos, Hunter gave a wonderful show. One of his first songs of the night was his new single, "21," which had an upbeat vibe and green laser light special effects. Hunter's energy quickly spread to the audience as he encouraged us to immerse ourselves into the music. His talents as a multi-instrumentalist also shined, playing different instruments throughout his entire performance. His piano performance was equally strong for "Invisible," "I Want Crazy" and several other songs. He truly performed according to the title of his YouTube video series #ForTheLoveofMusic.

Following Hunter, Lady Antebellum headlined the show. They sang in a melodic harmony that excited the crowd with hit singles, including "Just a Kiss." Our favorite part was the collaboration with Hunter on the song, "Compass." Ending the song was another enthralling guitar solo by Hunter. The night's music, overall, was fun and engaging.
