Kenny Chesney finished out the 2009 Sun City Carnival Tour on Saturday night at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The show was bittersweet for Kenny, as it was the final show of the year coupled with the fact that he is taking next year off from major touring. He had to fight back tears while singing “Better As A Memory” for the show closer.
The Indianapolis Star has a review of the show:
Familiar songs were easy to follow. Thankfully, Chesney has no shortage of hits.
Most rolled out in recursive loops of lyrics focused on nostalgia, tropical fun and landlocked fun.
Yet amid “Live Those Songs,” “When the Sun Goes Down,” “Summertime,” “I Go Back,” “Beer in Mexico” and “Keg in the Closet,” Chesney carved out a serious streak with love/parenthood songs “Anything But Mine,” “Down the Road,” “Me and You” and “There Goes My Life.”
Chesney’s most personal moment arrived with show-closer “Better As a Memory,” an emotional challenge he nearly lost — perhaps because he’s announced there will be no blockbuster summer tour in 2010.
We’re still looking for the set list from the show. If you have it, please email it to us.
