This year, Riley Green is supporting North Carolina superstar, Luke Combs, on a variety of dates across the US leg of his hugely popular world tour. In addition, Green has a slew of headlining shows interspersed with these, during which he's been playing slightly longer sets.
Although he hasn't dropped a new studio album since his celebrated Behind The Bar project in 2021, Green has been releasing a steady drip-feed of singles since then.
One of the most popular post-Behind The Bar releases has been ‘Hell Of A Way To Go’, an uptempo tribute to one of Riley Green's grandfathers, and this has thankfully made its way into his 2023 setlist.
‘Hell Of A Way To Go’ follows in the same red-dirt-stained footsteps of his break-out 2019 hit, ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’, as well as his nostalgic deep cut, ‘Behind The Times’.
Here you can find Riley Green's updated setlist as he embarks on his 2023 concert tour.
Riley Green's sets get off to a rowdy start with his much-loved down-home anthem, ‘Different ‘Round Here’. The track originally appeared on his 2019 album of the same name, but is excitingly being readied for re-release with a new blockbuster Luke Combs feature.
Also making its way into Green's 2023 set is one of the Alabama native's earliest hits, ‘There Was This Girl’, which has been serving as the grand finale for his 2023 performances.
His high-profile Thomas Rhett collaboration, ‘Half Of Me’, is another track that always receives a raucous welcome whenever Riley Green plays it live, as does ‘If It Wasn't For Trucks’.
However, as much as fans love the Friday night party-starters, unquestionably the most powerful performance of the night is Green's rendition of ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’.
With everyone in the stadium turning on their phone lights, and Green letting them sing the words back to him during the final chorus, it's always a special moment in his set.
During one of Green's recent Nissan Stadium performances of ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’, he switched out his ‘Bud Light’ lyric in favour of ‘Coors Light’, in a seemingly pointed move following Bud Light's support of a transgender influencer, Dylan Mulvaney.
Green joins Kid Rock, Travis Tritt and Brantley Gilbert as some of the country artists that have distanced themselves from Anheuser-Busch, the company that owns Bud Light, as a result of their involvement with Mulvaney. However, their reaction against the brand has itself drawn widespread condemnation from many fans and figures across the industry.
