Old Dominion Perseveres Through Terrential Rain to Play Free Show for Fans

STORM SLAMS OLD DOMINION’S STAGE, BUT DOESN’T DAMPEN SHOWMANSHIP 
Band
incorporated whatever gear and instruments not damaged by torrential
rain to deliver free show for Virginia Beach fans following wrecking
winds and destruction to stage
VIRGINIA
BEACH, Va. (Thursday, Aug.18, 2016) — With 75mph wind gusts ripping
the light truss from the lip of the shed at Neptune Park’s 31st Street
Stage in Virginia Beach Wednesday night, it appeared ACM-winning band
Old Dominion’s return to their namesake and home state would be
rescheduled or at least postponed to a later date due to damages, but
Old Dominion — band and crew — proved to be a force of nature
themselves. Taking the stage only 90 minutes behind schedule after
resetting and securing the stage, Old Dominion members Matthew Ramsey,
Brad Tursi, Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung and Whitt Sellers welcomed the
droves of fans lining the tousled bike railing into the park for a free
stripped performance that included their two-week No. 1 “Break Up With
Him,” “Snapback” and current single “Song For Another Time” from their
debut album Meat And Candy, along with several of the hits they’ve written for other artists.
Stripped-down
acoustic arrangements and minimal lighting spotlighted the hit
songwriting, tight arrangements and camaraderie of the RCA Nashville
band NPR calls “very clever” with “first-rate craftsmanship,” Entertainment Weekly  dubs, “deceptively smart” and “infectious,” and Vice raves is “on the cusp of superstardom.”
The
band will assess the ultimate damage to their touring equipment
tomorrow before their headlining show at Wilmington, N.C.’s Greenfield
Lake Amphitheater before joining Kenny Chesney at East Rutherford’s
MetLife Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 20. 
Fans can also catch Old Dominion on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday, Aug. 22.
