The Virginian Pilot has a review of Thursday night’s Kenny Chesney show at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Virginia Beach, Virginia: “Chesney shows why he’s king of country”

Will there ever be a more exciting show than Thursday night’s Kenny Chesney Sun City Carnival Tour? Probably — when Chesney returns to the Verizon Wireless Virginia Beach Amphitheater.

The biggest moneymaker in the country music business has it all — excellent material, a very good voice, a very good band, and a personality that exudes pure joy.

The most super of the country music superstars can best be described by thumbing through a dictionary of superlatives.

Typical of most shows in the genre, the fans sing along. In Chesney’s case, they seem to do as much vocalizing as their idol, seemingly knowing every word of every song.

Thursday’s show was called the Sun City Carnival. That sounds like a senior citizen boat trip, but most of the audience were in their 20s and 30s, an over-enthusiastic bunch who greeted the star with a thunderous, deafening ovation.

The Sun City Carnival Tour continues Saturday with a show from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

    It was a HOT night in Virginia Beach!! Between the steamy weather and the steam on stage! It was a awesome show from start to finish. Kenny really seemed to be having a great time and he signed a guitar and handed it to someone in the sandbar! Lady A and Miranda were great too! Got to meet Lady A! What nice, sweet group, Luv them! Best Kenny show I’ve seen yet… Now heading to Philly! I hope the vibe is as good as it was in Virginia Beach, cant wait till next year!
