On June 6th, 2009, I was one of the fans who were endured in traffic tie-ups because of tailgate parties for the biggest concert event of the year...the Kenny Chesney Sun City Festival at Heinz Field. The stadium was packed when we first got in. All you could see were cowboy hats and all you could smell was beer. It was still daylight when Country Music Association's new artist of the year, Lady Antebellum, kicked off the country music extravaganza with a string of hits from their self-titled debut CD. After there forty-five minute set, Miranda Lambert took the stage with an army of pink guitars and closed her set with Joan Jett's "I Love Rock-n-Roll." Once it became dark outside, the stadium lights were shining and the screens were on. Country music veterans Montgomery Gentry then came out and instantly had the crowd singing along to such hits as "Back When I Knew It All", "Lucky Man", and "It Ain't About Being Easy." The duo and their great band showed handily why they have had such staying power for a decade. Sugarland, the super-duo featuring Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, was next up with a stunning set that wowed the crowd and was sure-fire showcase for the amazing Nettles, who kept them eating out of her hand. Featuring such hits as "Settlin," "Already Gone," and "All I Want to Do" the ever-energetic pair had the crowd singing along to every tune and revving up to a party-fever-pitch. Nettles was joined by Bush on acoustic guitar center stage for the heart-wrenching ballad "Stay," which was delivered with a delicate mix of ferocity and longing. The pair ended their set with some fun when they put themselves inside massive inflatable balloons and body surfed the crowd. Last was the main attraction, Kenny Chesney. He opted for a grand entrance out of a tent in the middle of Heinz Field. The country superstar floated over the crowd suspended in a chair -- much to the delight of the crowd. The perfect, summer-like weather was punctuated by a nearly full moon, while the echoes of carefree living rang out from the stage in a power set of top hits that included "Summertime," "Beer In Mexico," and "Keg in the Closet." Once the summer-beer songs were put to rest, Chesney got to the business and sang love songs "I Go Back," "Anything But Mine," and "Down the Road," among others. He recounted an impromptu visit on a houseboat that was docked on the Point earlier in the day when he sang "Old Blue Chair" with his acoustic guitar."Back Where I Came From" featured the montage of city highlights and went right into "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven." There wasn't much of an encore, just "Don't Blink." The band played on while Chesney signed tons of autographs for the adoring crowd. There is no doubt that I love Kenny Chesney, Pittsburgh loves Kenny Chesney, and vice-versa. Recession be damned, the audience turned out to see what is always a good deal. Kenny Chesney's summer bash at Heinz Field? It's almost as American as apple pie.

I was lucky enough to be able to take my 3 yr old daughter Julie to her first Kenny Chesney Concert on Sept 11!! Let me tell you, that was the best show I had seen him ever do, and I have been to 10 of his shows so far...He played well over 3 hours and the energy was never gone....My daughter was lucky enough to be able to go on stage with Kenny to receive the guitar he signs and she was in heaven!! I will definately be going back again and take my children with me more times....

Was disappointed in Kenny Chesney Poets & Pirates concert last night. I was so looking forward to seeing him in concert. The concert volume was really loud, my ears were ringing for hours afterward, but you couldn't hear a word Kenny was singing. When Kenny spoke you couldn't tell what he was saying either. There was a large band, there were many guitarists and horns, but sound just wasn't clear, you could only distinguish the drum. Band sounded like loud background noise. The video and light show was really great. It's a shame, Kenny is so energetic and puts on such a great show. I wish the sound would have been better. I was seated in middle about halfway up theatre. In my opinion, the sound quality is the only part of show that needs improvement.

Chesney taps warm images that fans love

By DAVE TIANEN
Posted: July 23, 2007

Twin Lakes - He's the bantam prince of summer.

For decades, summer belonged to the Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffett.

Sunday at Country Thunder, Kenny Chesney proved once again that when the sun shines, he reigns.

When the Thunder video cameras swept the grounds, it was packed with cheering humanity from front row to the horizon.

If Chesney's the prince of summer, he still knows how to treat the fans royally.

The Thunder stage has a long ramp out into the crowd, and he made repeated forays out to slap paws and mingle.

The music itself is calculated beach ball soundtrack. Most of the songs fall into two broad categories.

There's the sunny skies getaway tunes like the opening "Beer In Mexico," "Keg in the Closet," "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems," "Old Blue Chair" and "When the Sun Goes Down."

These days Jennifer Nettles is filling in for Uncle Kracker as Chesney's duet partner on "When the Sun Goes Down," which is an aesthetic improvement on several levels.

Playful Chesney fires up crowd
BY JOSH MCAULIFFE
STAFF WRITER

Beach balls have long been staples of summertime concerts.

Alas, they were flying around Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain with much greater frequency Friday night.

That could only mean one thing: noted beach bum Kenny Chesney was in town.

The country megastar brought the party-hearty spirit of the Caribbean to the mountain, courtesy of his Flip Flop Summer Tour, and 16,500 frenzied fans ate it up with gusto. It was a solid set, full of infectious vibes you’d have to be dead not to get caught up in.

Following a 10-minute glorified advertisement for the tour’s sponsor, Cruzan Rum, featuring a goofy knockoff of “Pirates of the Caribbean’s” Captain Jack Sparrow, Mr. Chesney took the stage around 9:15 p.m. There, along with his 11-piece band, which included a full horn section, he dove into the opening chords of the giddy “Beer in Mexico.”

Clad in faded jeans, a Humble Pie sleeveless T-shirt and his ever-present cowboy hat, Mr. Chesney strummed his black skull-and-crossbones guitar for a bit before ditching it in favor of running around the stage like a whirling dervish. Smiling ear to ear, he picked up one of those ubiquitous beach balls and batted it into the crowd, then proceeded to slap five with as many front-row audience members as possible.

The brewsky theme continued with the equally up tempo “Keg in the Closet.”

Next, the crowd sang along to a wildly entertaining “Summertime,” then clapped along to “Big Star” as the band’s guitarists came to the front of the stage to indulge in a sling-a-thon with their leader.
