Chesney Plays to 40K in Green Bay

Over 40,000 fans packed into a cool Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Saturday night to see Kenny Chesney and his 2011 Goin’ Coastal Tour.

For over two hours, Chesney shrunk a huge stage in the south end zone with a tireless performance where he stayed in constant motion, with fans getting a large dose of his 21 No. 1 hits, as well as a handful of cover songs.

Keeping with Packers tradition, during the afternoon the parking lot was filled with tailgaters who warmed up by lounging in lawn chairs, grilling and playing touch football games. Despite the overcast skies, there were shirtless fans in shorts rather than parkas.

During the song, “Boys of Fall,” Chesney was joined onstage with Coach McCarthy and the Lombardi Trophy.

Review of FedEx Field Show

The Washington Post has a good review of Kenny Chesney’s DC-area concert on Saturday night where he played to 50,000 fans.

Think of Kenny Chesney as the anti-Bono.

Times are tough. People are suffering. The world has many problems. “But we don’t gotta solve a single one of ’em tonight,” Chesney declared Saturday night at FedEx Field, on his triumphant return to the touring circuit.

The country superstar does his requisite share of offstage charity work, but onstage he’s about providing one thing: escape.

No, that wasn’t a guilty conscience you were feeling — that was a beach ball hitting the side of your head.

When the lights went down and Chesney’s band began chugging, the man himself was nowhere to be found. “Where is he?” went thousands of circling heads. (Hint: Look for chiseled biceps and a sleeveless shirt.)

After a few bars of “Live a Little” (sample lyric: “Take some time / waste it on number one”), Chesney sprang up from the tangle of audiovisual equipment in the round, suspended in a kind of ski-lift chair.
