It's no secret that Irish fans and crowds have a reputation of being one of the greatest to perform in front of, whether that be in sport or in musical settings. One person who perhaps didn't expect such an amazing atmosphere was American artist Zach Bryan.
The country star played at The Helix on Tuesday evening in front of a crowd of loyal Irish followers and videos emerged on social media showing the Oklahoma native quite emotional with the support he was shown.
The 27-year-old is currently on a European tour and played his first of two dates at The Helix on Tuesday night.
Zach Bryan's record label, Warner Music, posted this video to their TikTok after his first ever gig in Ireland and it's safe to say that Bryan hadn't experienced anything like the Irish crowd in his career before last night.
@warnermusicirl @Zach Bryan was pretty special in Dublin tonight 💚🇮🇪 its a long way from Oklahoma but the welcome is the same 💚 @Warner Records #zachbryan #zachbryandublin #zachbryanmusic #zachbryanconcert #zachbryansongs #zachbryanfanpage #fyp #explore #concert #gig #irishtiktok #irish #ireland ♬ Heading South - Zach Bryan
Fans of the singer also shared their experiences of his first ever Irish concert on social media and from viewing alone, it looked like a fantastic night for all.

Zach Bryan took to his own social media accounts late last night to thank his Irish crowd.

The country star's reaction to the Irish crowd shows yet again how great a nation we are for supporting acts and stars we love.
There had been quite a lot of controversy over the decision to stage Bryan in one of Dublin's smaller arenas, but it's certain after the reaction to his first outting in Ireland, that he will be playing in front of a much larger crowd on his next visit.
