Kenny Chesney, along with Jason Aldean, played Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Saturday for the fourth time in the last five years and broke an attendance record set in 1994.

Headlining a bill that included co-headliner Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert, Chesney drew a crowd of 57,368, according to officials with the Kansas City Chiefs, breaking the stadium record of 56,132, set by Pink Floyd in June 1994.

The largest concert crowd at Arrowhead may have been the most raucous, too. For more than two hours, Chesney and his band fired one hit after another at the throng that surrounded them, and each time it responded like fans watching their favorite sports team win a playoff game.

Chesney’s was the fifth set of a show that started at 4:30 p.m., when the stage and much of the crowd was bathed in sun and heat. The openers included Old Dominion, a five-piece standard country-rock band from Tennessee that played its singles, “Shut Me Up” and “Break Up With Him.”
