On Friday night, Kenny Chesney played for nearly three hours at the Xcel Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Star Tribune has photos and a review of the show:

It had been four years since country concert king Kenny Chesney had performed in the Twin Cities. In the music business, four years is a long time. You can launch a superstar career (Taylor Swift). Suffer in purgatory (Dixie Chicks). Or fade away (hello Faith, Shania and Garth).

Maybe four is a lucky number for Chesney. Friday night at the soldout Xcel Energy Center was the fourth concert on the Goin’ Coastal Tour by the Country Music Association’s four-time entertainer of the year. And he started in fourth gear the moment he hit the stage.

Chesney was all revved up. He was full throttle for — you guessed it — the first four songs, boot scootin’ bouncing all over his cross-shaped runway like a hyperkinetic kid on the playground after being pent up in school all day. When he finally paused for a breath, the 15,927 fans greeted him with a thunderous ovation.

“From the sound of things, it sounds like it was four years too long,” declared Chesney, already sweating like he was in mid-workout.

    It was quite a night! I have pics, my own review and the set up on my fan site. I’d love to take him up on his offer and attend the rest of the shows this tour, he told us he wanted to take all of us with him.
