In Photos: Dierks Bentley at Live Oak Bank Pavilion

WILMINGTON — After the show was postponed June 3, due to thunderstorms, fans of country music were able to pack into downtown’s Live Oak Pavilion two days later to catch the recently inducted Music City Walk of Fame performer.

Dierks Bentley, the country vocalist behind “Beers on Me,” “Somewhere on a Beach” and “What Was I Thinkin’,” made his first stop in Wilmington as part of his summer leg of the 31-city “Beers on Me Tour.” Joining him were Ashley McBryde and Travis Denning.

With more than 6.4 billion streams and 20 top hits, Bentley performed through 20 songs or so, from his nine-disc catalogue.

Below are photos of the show captured by Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media.
