Review of Oregon Show

The Oregonian has a review of Tuesday night’s show at the Clark County Amphitheater in Portland Oregon: “Review: Kenny Chesney and LeAnn Rimes”

Even the blustery breezes and miserable drizzle that like clockwork accompany Portland’s Rose Festival couldn’t stop the force of nature that is country star Kenny Chesney.
Tuesday night, Chesney’s Poets and Pirates tour docked at the all-but-open-air Amphitheater at Clark County, a mere two auto accidents and bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic north of Portland proper.

Hot off his latest – and fourth in a row – Entertainer of the Year award from the Academy of Country Music, Chesney proved his power and mastery of the big rock beat, the poetry of nostalgia, the longing for sunny beaches and his live-life-to-the-fullest philosophy before a nearly sold-out crowd that could have cared less that Chesney’s summer tour was basking in 50-degree weather.

The Luttrell, Tenn., native unleashed a 22-song, two-hour multimedia spectacular that showcased his 11-piece band (his regular touring unit, augmented by a four-piece horn section), a tried-and-true country-music and radio-friendly song formula, and his awe-shucks, ear-to-ear grinning country-boy charm.

Read the entire review here.

The Poets & Pirates Tour continues Friday night with a show from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Get your tickets now!
