Ghost Hounds Provide Proper Opening To Rolling Stones

Sunday, October 17, 2021 - by Patrick O'Hagan

Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and its adjoining parking lots were covered with concert goers last Saturday to catch a piece of music history. The Rolling Stones were making a stop in Music City for their 2021 No Filter tour. Along with them came the new generation of rock n’ roll – Pittsburg, Pa.’s Ghost Hounds. 

Opening for any major group is a huge honor to any up-and-coming artist, but when arguably the world’s greatest give you a call that’s a whole new level. And for Ghost Hounds, a repeat guest of The Stones, it’s a testament to the fact that they’re on the right track as a band. 

Ghost Hounds took to the large stadium stage just as the sun went down over Nashville. Most of the seats were already filled with individuals ready to see The Stones. For the next 45 minutes, they were treated to a strong performance of blues-inspired rock by Ghost Hounds. 

Frontman Tre Nation led the band with the confidence of a seasoned veteran with a strong confidence and presence and spot-on vocals. The rest of the band was equally impressive, hitting every note and capturing the attention of Stones fans. 

They highlighted several songs off their latest album “A Little Calamity,” as well as many off their first record. Ghost Hounds’ performance was strong and engaging, warming up the crowd for the legendary Rolling Stones. They surely proved that they have what it takes to make the transition from opener to headliner very soon.
