When the lights went down at the Puget Sound area's Tacomadome, Keith introduced himself not by stepping onstage but by showing a Ford commercial on three stadium-sized screens.
The commercial featured the singer turned action hero battling aliens with his Ford truck before taking off like a bull through a chute to ram into the alien ship. Keith then burst onto the expansive Tacoma Dome stage in a mighty display of lights and explosions.
Let it be known that Toby Keith is a cowboy, damn it -- he knows how to make an entrance!
Without missing a beat, Keith and his 10-piece band dived right into "Honkytonk U." The thrilling rendition was replete with pyrotechnics blasting streamers and sparks and all manner of explosive excitement into the audience.
The momentum went right into "Get Drunk and Be Somebody" and "Whiskeygirl" before the flashy show almost caught one member of the band on fire. Not once but twice. (The second time forcing him to jettison his guitar and pat his shirt and face.) He soon moved to another part of the stage. (Note: A previous version of this story suggested that it was Toby Keith who nearly caught fire.) He soon moved to another part of the stage.
