PEOPLE Hits the Road for Luke Bryan's Stadium Show

Originally posted 08/16/2014 02:30PM

When Luke Bryan announced that the next leg of his That's My Kind of Night tour would include four stadiums, we were impressed. And when PEOPLE Country's sexiest man then proceeded to set a ticket sales record for the first date in Pittsburgh and break an attendance record for the second date in Boston, we decided a road trip was in order for the third.

We picked up our rental car and headed to Philadelphia to find out – along with the 50,000 other attendees – what a show of this scope is like, from beginning to end. From tailgating to Tweeting with opener Cole Swindell to crashing Bryan's meet and greet party, check out the experience from PEOPLE's point of view.

(And no, he didn't fall off the stage this time – but he did perform the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme, to the delight of the Philly crowd.)

Watch This Hilarious Fresh Prince-Themed Birth Announcement Video

[YOUTUBE "I5OMgQuK-kc"] Suburban Phoenixville, Pennsylvania may be a far cry from the glitz and glamor of Bel-Air, but that didn't stop these two parents-to-be from paying homage to their favorite '90s sitcom when they needed to announce their pregnancy to friends and family.

With the help of Merryweather Films, Dayton and Melanie Duncan (who met as freshman at Temple University) recorded their baby news as a shot-for-shot remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's title sequence. And we have to admit, the farms and fields of the Phoenixville area are the perfect stand in for the luxurious mansions of the original.

Carolyn Santamauro lives on Elfreth's Alley in Philadelphia, Pa., known as the nation's oldest residential street.

She's used to seeing tourists outside her front door, but this week the pastry chef got a pleasant surprise when she met one very famous sightseer: Miley Cyrus.

"I was coming back from the gift shop and I saw a chick who had the same hair as Miley's new hair," says Santamauro, 30. "She comes around the corner and it was her! Her haircut looked absolutely fabulous."

The singer has been in town to support her fiancé Liam Hemsworth while he films his new movie, Paranoia, but on Tuesday she was just a visitor checking out the sights with two friends.
