24 RA Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley

Albuquerque is the first stop on Brad Paisley’s world tour, which kicks off at the Isleta Amphitheater on Thursday, May 30. The country star broke onto the scene two decades ago with his 1999 debut, Who Needs Pictures, and has followed that up with a string of creatively expansive discs, earning three Grammy awards along the way. One recent mark of his eclectic nature are the duets with Mick Jagger and John Fogerty on 2017’s Love and War. Another is his presence on the 2018 Christmas album Shatner Claus — yes, it’s by Captain Kirk. Paisley’s world tour also features country singers Chris Lane and Riley Green. The music at Isleta Amphitheater, 5601 University Boulevard SE, starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $378 and available at 800-854-2196, amphitheatrealbuquerque.com
