Country star Dierks Bentley brought his Burning Man 2019 tour to Rogers Arena in Vancouver Tuesday night with fellow genre artists Tenille Townes and Jon Pardi in tow.

The 43-year-old artist kicked off the pop-country-filled evening with his Hot Country Knights band, which warmed up the crowd with their unique brand of so-bad-it’s-good ’90s country cover songs.

Complete with silly choreographed dance moves and even sillier outfits (Bentley wore a blonde wig in the shape of a mullet and a classy leopard-print vest), the band kicked the evening off to a light-hearted start.

Townes took the stage next, starting her set off with the song White Horse.

The tune was decent and the sound even better, but it was the 25-year-old Grande Prairie artist’s outfit that was especially impactful, at first. The marigold-hued top and trousers, paired with her undone, beach-y waves, gave off some seriously bada**, boho-chic vibes.

With that little bit of sartorial commentary out of the way, (for now) the Canadian artist’s set saw her perform songs including Where You Are, Jersey on the Wall (I’m Just Asking) and even a cover of U2’s 1987 hit, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.

It’s clear that, these days, Pardi needs little introduction — and and his energetic set proved why.

For the final Canadian stop on the Burning Man Tour, Pardi ripped through a set full of hits including Night Shift, Dirt on My Boots and Lucky Tonight. The twangy tunes and …
