Award-winning country-music superstar trio Lady Antebellum brought their “Take Me Downtown” Tour to Mandalay Bay Events Center on Friday evening on what had to be one of the busiest nights of the year at the Strip casino resort.
Kip Moore, in a muscle T showing off his guns, and new country darling Kacey Musgraves, in painted-on liquid-metal pants and a T-shirt, opened for heartthrob Charles Kelley, in a long-sleeve black button up, Hillary Scott, in all black, and Dave Haywood, in a light-blue T-shirt.
