If you saw country superstar Toby Keith’s “Locked and Loaded” show at SPAC recently, you were treated to a truck-load of catchy songs with great lyrics that were backed by a high-energy, rockin’ band.

But, you were also continually slapped in the face with some blatant advertising – starting with a commercial video on the huge screen at the back of the stage pitching the Toby Keith limited edition Ford F-150 pick-up truck. Evidently, this was all part of a “Made In America” campaign that Keith was spearheading with his tour.

“Well, let’s see if I can remember. Man, I think the earliest album that I can remember asking my mom to buy for me was after we had been to a Hank Williams, Jr. concert.

It was before he was what he is now. Back then, he was still singing his dad’s songs, and he had just started writing his own songs. He hadn’t had all the ‘Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound’ stuff yet.

So she got me one of those albums. It had a song on it called ’11 Roses’ and a song called ‘Hamburger Steak, Holiday Inn,’ or something like that.”

Country superstar Toby Keith brings his Locked & Loaded Tour to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs at 7pm on Thursday (September 8). Eric Church and J.T. Hodges are slated to open the show. Reserved amphitheater tix are $49.75 & $75, while lawn general admission is $29.50.
