“Usually when I start playing, it’s like pitch-black and now I get to see everyone. It’s awesome,” he told the crowd in a video posted to social media. “This is pretty fun. I kind of feel like when you’re the main act, there’s a bunch of pressure because people have paid to see you but I feel like when you’re the opening act you’re sort of like, ‘Let’s have fun. Let’s play songs.’”
