ZBB AT PNC DISAPPOINTED
Great band, but they need to play their own songs. People came for a country concert, not Metallica, Adel, or any others. Total downer on this. Also, the songs they did play were lacking in popularity. The audience was singing along to the better ones. They should have read the crowd. Also the sound system was horrible. I could hardly hear them sing, bass was good, way too much highs, just sounded like noise. Also, they overbooked this event and it started to look dangerous if there was any emergency.

ZAC THE FRAUD
Started show off on Fire with 3 hits right off the bat, then concert went downhill from there. He is supposed to be the lead singer but was in the background on many songs. Many different singers. Also, I thought it was Karioke night. He played way too many songs from other bands. I feel he there for just a payday.

AWFUL...JUST REALLY AWFUL.
Went to the July 19th show in Camden, NJ. First off, it cost $30 just to park. Then, the ZBB setlist was so unbelievable we actually had to walk out. Neaely half the songs they played were covers...and really old, boring ones at that. The crowd was young, energetic and enthusiastic at first but ZBB managed to bore them all to sleep or out the door with us. What a shame...I didn't pay good money to watch a mediocre cover band. I feel like they played their fans for suckers. I feel like I'm owed a refund. I would never go see them again.

ZAC BROWN COVER BAND
Why would a band with so many great songs resort to being a cover band. Went with my family to hear Zac Brown music live but we came home disappointed. Dont get me wrong their talent is beyond reproach but i would have gone to the local pub to hear cover music. Saw them a couple years ago at the Amphitheater and they killed it. If you have enough of your own songs to fill a concert and you're who people paid to see play YOUR music.. Likely the last time I'll go see them live.

ZAC BROWN GONE BIGTIME
Terrible experience. To many covers and general ego trips. Came to see great country musicians. Left feeling this band is extremely far from the great neighbors we saw in chicken fried and the great country musicians we expected. More of an angry night of “look at us” than a celebration. Seemed to play their hits as a checklist but put energy and time into covers and playing for themselves. Notable that the local crowd has country fans looking bored while the drunk obnoxious group had a great time yelling whoooo
ZBB Fail from Chicago, Illinois
If I wanted to hear cover tunes - I would watch American Idol. ZBB - major disappointment tonight in Tinley Park! Never seen so many leave before the encore. Know what got you there - and stick to it!

WON'T DO THAT AGAIN
I love listening to ZBB's recorded music. However, attending this show was so bad, we left at intermission. The band just lacks in enthusiasm on stage. Technically, they are very competent and well-rehearsed. But, as another reviewer pointed out, they failed to read the crowd and for the most part, the folks around me were more interested in hanging out and talking with ZBB in the background. The band didn't do anything to create a level of excitement to stir the folks in our section (which was in the middle of the arena) or the rest of us. Additionally, they failed to realize that most people don't want to hear ZBB play songs like Hot For Teacher. It was self-indulgent on their part. We paid to hear ZBB music - not wait until they finish their detour to get back to their own music that we love. So, my takeaway is to make sure to only go to shows where I know the performance will be memorable (which I can do by reviewing prior YouTube performance). Expensive lesson!
