Review: Toby Keith in concert

Article Last Updated: 08/04/2007 02:23:14 AM MDT

WEST VALLEY CITY -- Forget the hype about country crooner Toby Keith's politics, feud with the Dixie Chicks and all the other redneck nonsense people have labeled him with.
The guy can flat out put on a show.
If there is a better outdoor concert this summer season than the high-energy one Keith and warmup acts Miranda Lambert and Flynntown Train put on Friday night at the Usana Amphitheater, then I'll eat the "I Love This Bar" hat I bought at the show.

From the opening movie commercial featuring Keith as the Big Dog Daddy and Larry the Cable Guy as his sidekick Possum Boy to the patriotic encores American Soldier and Courtesy of the Red White and Blue that ended it, this show had it all. Fireworks and state-of-the-art lighting dazzled the crowd. Keith had this fans rocking to raucous honky tonk tunes, humorous off-color "bus songs", stirring ballads, a bit of Ted Nugent and even a some country rap. Backed by the 10-piece Easy Money Band, the deep-voiced Keith commanded the stage like few performers can. Unlike the self-professed "girl with an attitude" Lambert and the country rockers Flynntown Train, the headliner managed to project his booming voice over the amplified music to the point where nearly every word could be heard. Keith is a big man with a big voice and an entertainer who doesn't need to beg his fans to get into the concert. From the opening song "Big Dog Daddy" from the album of the same name, he had adoring fans on their feet and dancing in the aisles. But the surprise was no so much the fast-moving hits such as A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action, High Maintenance Woman, Honky Tonk U, and Whiskey Girl, but the range he showed.
