Kenny Chesney opened his latest tour in Nashville, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. When I say tickets, I am not talking about just any tickets. My wife could reach out and touch the stage. Of course, that is a great thing because she is a huge fan of Kenny.
Looking at the circumstances, I can understand why she thinks that way.
He was born in 1968, and I was born in 1968.
He is a native of Tennessee, and I am a native of Tennessee.
He is a huge fan of the University of Tennessee, and I am a huge fan of the University of Tennessee.
He suffers from a lack of hair, and I suffer from a lack of hair.
Heck, we are basically the same person. The only differences are his talent, money, fame and the feeling of having thousands of people scream when he walks in the room.
The concert opened with a cool video based on a Voodoo theme. Then, Kenny and his band came out and played for over three hours. Those hours were filled with constant music and little talk. There is nothing worse than going to a concert and have them talk through half of it.
Anyway, it was an awesome show that was made more awesome by where we sat. My wife was able to get some great pictures.
Joe Walsh is one of the all-time great guitarists and played some classics. In fact, the entire show ended with a miniature Joe Walsh concert. Once Joe was finished doing his thing, Kenny made a final walk around the stage, and it all came to an end.
I have seen Kenny Chesney in concert before and was not impressed. However, this was one of the better concerts I have seen.
My only complaint? For the band introductions, they covered “Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC, and the crowd did not seem to know what it was. Who does not know an AC/DC song when they hear it?
I guess that is more of a complaint about the ignorance of the crowd. The concert was great. Of course, other factors could have been kicking in. It may have been the seats. It may have been the appearance of Joe Walsh. Heck, it may have been my karmic connection to Kenny. After all, we are practically the same person.
