Headed to my sister's house Friday night to stay over so we could get right up on Saturday and get ready to go...an hour later than usual, but that's ok! We met my other two sisters and brother-in-law's at the park and ride and after loading everything of theirs up in Meg's truck, headed out about 11:30. This show is an all-day affair. And when I say all day, I mean ALL DAY and into the next day! The Stadium is in Jersey and us being from New York-it's a ride.
Getting to the show we hit a bunch of traffic. But we knew was going to happen! It ended up being ok though, because it was the hottest day of the year. Like 95° and 120 in the sun HOTT!! SO our shorter than usual tail gate was welcomed!!
By about 1:30 we made it into the parking lot and met up with my bestie Mel and her Dad who were also going to the show!! Tailgated in the blistering heat til about 4:15 and headed inside. Mel, Meghan and I do not like to miss an act. We support them all!! And when you have club seats with an air conditioned area, why not go inside when it's 110 out!! Mel commented that she hadn't been this hot since our 4 days of concerts at CMA fest in 2009 when there was record-breaking, stay inside for your own health heat!! When even at 11 p.m. it was legitly 100°!!
(not really sure why I'm holding a football!!)
The Early Birds...Country's Biggest Supporters! We love everybody!!
After Old Dominion was Cole Swindell. I like him a lot too. And Mel, Meg and I have already seen him. He opened for Luke Bryan Last September. I love when the artist comes on and I can sing along to every song! And he's GREAT LIVE!!! We said when he had his own headlining show we are so there!!
After Cole Swindell was Brantley Gilbert. I'm not gonna lie...I like him on the radio. In concert, notsomuch! A little too loud and hard rock for me!! So during his set Meghan and I went to scope out the merchandise. Which in all honesty we should have bought first thing when we went in and no one was around. Because by that time almost everything was sold out!! After walking across the whole place, back outside, and three booths later, I got a shirt and a koozie!!
By seven I was back in my seat for the rest of the night! The show was a co-headlining tour for Jason Aldean and Kenny. Mel and I have seen Jason Aldean before too. She got us tickets for my birthday a few years ago! (Clearly, the money that other people our age are spending on their kids, Mel and I spend on concert tickets!!) He puts on a great show and played a good hour and a half. Full show, complete with pyrotechnics and everything!
This one's for Leslie!! :)
He's entered on this zipline chair thingy a few times!! They leave the lights on for his safety! HA!!
But I think Happy Heart Day will have to wait for it's own post!! So please come back tomorrow!!
I calculated that this is my ninth Kenny Show!! YIKES!! I love them all!! Can't wait 'til next year!! Fingers Crossed he tours!!
