He’s known for his country music hits, but before tonight’s concert Dierks Bentley released some steam on the ice. Bentley is playing at U.S. Cellular Coliseum as part of the Jagermeister tour. B104 contacted Bentley to play a game of hockey before his performance, which was an offer he said he couldn’t turn down.
“It’s nice, it’s a chance to step away from doing interviews and all that stuff , to play hockey and have fun,” said Bentley.
Bentley said he started to play hockey about 10 years ago. He even compared the game to some of his performances.
“I think our show is kind of like a hockey game a little bit. We have six guys on the ice, guys on the stage, we kind of approach it the same way. We want to get out there and get a win.”
Members of the Bloomington Police and Fire Departments, PrairieThunder and B104′s Kevin and JD also joined him on the ice.
