What songs will The Band Perry play in concert?
With such a short time basking in the spotlight, the Band Perry lack that extensive catalog of rich cuts that fuel many other country artist’s careers. The group has their self-titled debut album under their belt, which catapulted them to fame. The current tour is in support of their sophomore record, Pioneer. It is beefy with content, spanning over an hour when you account for the select bonus tracks. This alone provides a solid foundation for the band to flex setlist on their world tour in 2014.
At the end of the day, the band has just over an hour and a half of professionally recorded music. This naturally limits the variety of their nightly setlist, and keeps things quite consistent from concert to concert. Where the band changes things up come in their revolving door of covers, mostly drawn from the 70’s. Queen’s own “Fat Bottomed Girls” is a fun little jam with a taste of country. Modern pop fans will recognize the group’s energetic cover of fun.’s own chart anthem, “Some Nights.” The track has a strong hip-hop influence within its production elements that the Band Perry seems to adore playing with.
The group closes nearly all their sets with a rendition of the epic country rock track, “Better Dig Two.” It is widely considered the opus and centerpiece of the group’s 2013 record, Pioneer. Without further ado, here is the typical setlist you’ll hear during the We Are Pioneers Tour.
All Your Life
Forever Mine Nevermind
I Will Always Love You
I’m a Keeper
Hip to My Heart
Postcard From Paris
Fat Bottomed Girls
Night Gone Wasted
Don’t Let Me Be Lonely
If I Die Young
Better Dig Two
How long is a Band Perry concert?
At just 80 minutes, the Band Perry breezes through their set with focused aplomb. The set remains extremely consistent throughout its run from one show to the next.
Does the Band Perry like to interact with the crowd?
Yes! The group is very well known for in-group chatter between songs and conversing with the crowd. Fans can expect pauses where frontwoman Kimberly Perry will ask the crowd questions or dig into the meaning behind a song. These moments are rather special, yet not entirely unexpected. For better or worse, the Band Perry has a small discography to work with. Interaction with the crowd helps keep the pacing against their limited catalog. It also helps to keep the shows intimate as the size of the venue they play seem to grow by the minute.
Can I expect to meet The Band Perry after the show?
This is a tough call, for The Band Perry are right on the cusp of popularity to where it is a very real possibility while not necessarily likely. This will often depend on the specifics of the music venue. Some venues do not always allow artist to come down to mingle with the fans after a show, especially when they are inside the venue. Some bands come outside by the back trailers for the few that hang outside post-show. The band has a huge following, so intimate one-on-one time is highly unlikely, though an autograph for those with dogged persistence is certainly not out of the question.
Who is opening the 2014 shows?
The Band Perry had the first opportunity to hand-select their opening acts for their headlining We Are Pioneers tour. Lindsay Eli has a strong country-pop style that perfectly complements the Band Perry. Her two independent albums include Consider This (2006) and Alone (2009). She is currently working on her major label studio debut record which is tentatively scheduled for release later this year.
Who is the band’s current media contact?
The Band Perry works with Splash! Public Relations for their press related matters. Splash’s client list includes Jeremy McComb, Elizabeth Lyons, and John Michael Montgomery. Vanessa Davis handles the band for the agency.

“The Band Perry came out ready to leave it all on the stage. I think their theory was, if we only get to perform two songs we’re going burn this place down to give the rain a reason for coming.” – Mark Runyon of ConcertTour.org
“The Band Perry entered dramatically with their initials emblazoned on a trio of LED screens to perform “Done”. Led by the infectiously charismatic blonde bombshell Kimberly, the trio is as rock as they are country. They performed all their hits. ”If I Die Young” featured the audience singing the verses unaccompanied by the band. Their best numbers feature brothers Neil and Reid on guitar and mandolin.” – Michael Rampa of High Octane Music
“Vocalist Kimberly has an unvarnished tone that thankfully hasn’t been buried beneath platinum sales and hit singles. It makes songs such as “Hip to my Heart and “All Your Life” more engaging than they should be. The loudest cheers, of course came during weepy chart-toppers “If I Die Young” and “Better Dig Two.” Never underestimate the power of syrupy sentiment.” – Joey Guerra of The Chron
