Oliver Tree’s Self-Proclaimed “Last Tour Ever” Passes Through Nashville, TN

After several rescheduled dates throughout quarantine, Oliver Tree’s Nashville date was finally rescheduled. The venue changed several times as it was rescheduled, with each venue getting bigger and bigger. Oliver promised fans in Nashville he would be coming back as soon as possible – and boy, was the wait worth it. The show was opened by Sueco and 347Aidan – and I was shocked to learn later on in the night that Aidan is so young as he seems to have been working crowds for much longer.

Taking a less traditional approach to the typical concert setlist, where artists perform their most popular hits last, Oliver opened his show with a lot of really popular hits such as Alien Boy. The crowd was completely infected by Oliver’s performance from the get go – not only singing along, but chanting along as well. While 347Aidan did a good job getting the crowd going, I have never seen someone completely captivate an audience the way Oliver had.

My favorite “intermission” of the night was when 347Aidan returned to the stage solo, in a pink cowboy hat, with Sandstorm by Darude (yes… you read that right) BLASTING as he danced across stage. This was easily the most unexpected moment of the night, and a big laugh!

His show was divvied up into multiple “acts” – similar to how a theatrical performance would be. In his “first act,” where he performed popular songs like Alien Boy, he wore his retro windbreaker with very dramatically flared jeans – an outfit that fans would recognize from his rise into the alternative scene.

As the show progressed, he would either strip into another costume, or hide somehow to change which props were hollowed out for him to hide in on stage.

Each outfit represented an era of Oliver Tree, which really made it a recollective experience for fans. Throughout the entire performance, Oliver was trolling the audience by saying “This is my last song of the night!!” followed by running off stage, to then come back out in a creative way. One of his most creative returns, and a personal favorite of mine, was when he returned on stage on top of a cow for his most recent viral hit Cowboys Don’t Cry.

While Oliver Tree has proclaimed multiple times that this is his last tour ever (just like how he kept saying “this is my last show of the night” when it wasn’t), we can only hope there will be many more Oliver Tree tours to come. I have never seen a show quite like his from a rock star, and sincerely hope to see another sooner than later.
