ZAC BROWN AND BAND
DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS !!! KICKED AZZZZZZZZZ !!! WOW THE WHOLE CONCERT NO ONE SAT DOWN ! WHAT A RANGE OF MUSIC DIVERSITY BY THIS BAND , FROM VOCALS TO PERCUSSION AND TO HAVE IT AT THE FORUM WHICH BY FAR HAS THE BEST SOUND AND ACOUSTICS AROUND ( PERIOD ).
Terry evans from Deming, Washington
Great Concert! Zach brown has gone into stardom! We saw 9 years ago in Everett and the brand has improved immensely. The sound and video background were great! He played all his hits while the crowd sang and danced. They also played old hits from other artists including Eagles, Charlie Daniels, Almond Bros, Metalica, Queen and more. It was fabulous! Fiddler Jimmy De Martini wowed the crowd, Cloy Cook Tied to the Whipping Post great and John Hopkins clear voice mixed well. Very talented group!

I WAS WOWED!
Saw ZBB for the first time at Target Field last night and went home amazed. I knew it would be a good show but did not realize it would be a great show! Definitely in my list of top 5 concerts I've ever been to. They have so many of their own songs that would fill the entire 2 hour set, but they did lots of unexpected covers. I LOVED THAT! I am not boxed into only one genre so to hear them all of a sudden bust out Metallica and Sir Mix a Lot and do it WELL, I was thoroughly impressed.
Mike Cook from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Over on vacation from the UK and couldn’t believe my luck to get tickets for ZBB after 4 years of waiting since seeing them at Glastonbury . Fantastic talented musicians and was not disappointed .....truly an amazing experience and now waiting to see them at Bluesfest in London . Brilliant inclusion for our holiday
JamMan from Chicago, Illinois
Total entertainment/ Great Versatility. Loved the Tributes to The Dave Matthews and Greg Allman Band. They Rocked it. Also Satified the Audience with their hits & new stuff. We Loved the Show
Enjoy the ride from Boston, Massachusetts
ALWAYS A GREAT CONCERT
I have been to almost every single Boston Fenway concert and have traveled to Saratoga and Hartford several years to see these guys!! Always amazing and entertaining. Never disappointed!! setlists are always different. Sad to read negative reviews - artists feel the energy of the crowd-music is symbiotic- engage yourself more and they will feed off your enthusiasm!!all artists introduce new music and cover other artists as well and these guys blend it perfectly with their own. We love to hear Bohemian rhapsody or whipping post! If they did 5 nights at fenway I would attend every night because this band delivers a different fantastic show every single time that I have seen them

ZAC BROWN- FENWAY PARK 2021
ZBB arrived ready to rock and entertain last night. I have seen the band 6 times and they were AMAZINNG last night. A bit rusty from Covid but obviously thrilled to be back on stage and in Boston where they seem to love to play and we love to hear them!. Till next year ZBB, be safe and keep the music coming!

ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIANS BUT PLAY YOUR SONGS
No denying they're great at what they do, but this is the jersey shore, don't play one verse each from your "beach" songs and compile them into a medley and then spend 20 minutes on an allman brothers song that either drove half the audience out of the arena or half to sleep, finally if your Springsteen you can let nils and Stevie battle it out on guitar and the crowd will love it, if your ZBB, play your hits
Dan from Atlanta, Georgia
AWESOME MUSIC BUT TERRIBLE VENUE
As always ZBB is awesome!!! That said, Suntrust Park is the WORST venue for a concert. Constant echo just ruins the experience...not to mention toe massively amplified bass that makes it a muddy sounding mess. HORRIBLE acoustics! Then there is the inexcusable procedure for entering the venue with few entries open and extremely long lines...took 45 mins in line just to get in. Lastly, trying to exit the event from a close in parking lot was a JOKE! It took 69 minutes just to get out of the parking garage because there is absolutely zero traffic control. LOVE ZBB but HATE Suntrust Park venue.

ZAC BROWN BAND ROGERS CENTRE JULY 13 2018
This was to be a country music concert .warm-up band not country, not good. First half of concert very good lot of familiar songs. Second half not so good. ZBB did not read the crowd. Great response to their traditional music. A lackluster response to what they tried to introduce. Promoted as country band, but played other music. They are talented. However stick with one genre .The Encore was much less than an encore. It was more of a repertoire of their talents of other musicians music .Overall nice night.

COVER MUSIC LET’S US DOWN
After leaving the concert we spoke with lots of groups on the walk from Fenway. The sentiment was pretty universal - disappointment over, 1) all the cover songs and 2), the end of the show with no finally. Great entertainers, but seems they are forgetting who they are there to entertain.
Anonymous from Cincinnati, Ohio
While I love their music, I was a little disappointed. Two of their best songs one of them being “uncaged “they didn’t play. And at the end they played other music not their own which I thought was odd. Also they never really fully introduced their band. Definitely not one of my favorite concerts. Also nobody would sit down so you could justSit down and enjoy the concert.

TALENTED - BUT WHY PALY COVERS ALL NIGHT!
Disappointed with lack of their own music played. Amazingly talented musicians but why play others music when they have all those great songs I came to hear. Guys, Im sure you had fun but you forgot why you were there - to play YOUR music for YOUR fans.
Sad in Philly from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Went to see the Zac Brown Band play their own songs. Way too much time spent playing other artists and with the cover band. Some use of other artists worked and others were a huge miss. We could have left at the intermission and been better off. That being said this is my 6th time going to this concert and this was by far my least favorite.
Linda from Denver, Colorado
Didn't get us up on our feet like I thought they would. I'm just glad I didn't pay for the tickets.
Disappointed! from Denver, Colorado
PLEASE PLAY ZBB MUSIC!
I did not go to a ZBB concert to hear the Beastie Boys and Metallica! Fantastic musicians and maybe they tire of playing their own stuff but that is what I came to hear.
Sad ZBB fan from Denver, Colorado
WHERE WAS ZBB?
50% ZBB songs - the crowd loved! 50% rock cover band songs and crazy laser lights - what was that about? Felt like they lost their way in a midlife crisis. Crowd disengaged. Everyone I know was looking forward to a night where you put life aside for the evening and just chill with friends, listening to our favorite ZBB tunes. Loved first two ZBB concerts I attended. This year’s concert was a train wreck. So disappointed. Wasn’t the night so many of us were looking forward to experiencing. Also not sure why there was a several minute break between each song? Made the concert very disjointed.
Jenn Penna from Boston, Massachusetts
TOO MANY COVERS
The first time I saw ZBB, 6 years ago it was 95% their own music. Last night's show at Fenway was a disappointment. It was probably 50% their own music. I paid a lot of money to see a cover band. Very disappointing
Christine Poppe from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We love ZBB. This experience was miserable. The venue oversold the lawn seats and it was chaos, nothing but drunk 15 years olds walking around looking for their friends, tripping over people or vomiting. Never saw the kids even look in the direction of the stage. Maybe that's because they didn't recognize any of the songs. ZBB are very talented musicians and covered Queen, Billy Joel and James Taylor beautifully, but I payed money to see the ZBB play their own songs. I don't want to give up on going to see this band, so I hope they realize going forward that we want to see them sing their own songs. We will never go back to the BBT for any concert! Charging $40 for parking with 3 port-a-potty stalls was unconscionable! And taking them away before the concert was over, I cannot understand??!!

6/22/19 AT PNC ART CENTER, NJ
Have seen ZBB several times in Jersey and once in Nashville... Great memories!!! However we were all very disappointed at this one. TOO many cover songs and 4 or 5 songs from his new album that no one heard yet. Always on my feet at his concerts. But this one was a boring concert. As a result, I decided not to go to the September concert in Camden. Zac, stick to your roots and fan base. We love YOUR music!
Anthony from Westfield, NJ
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.
Gary from Boston, Massachusetts
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.
Jim Zack from Cherry Hill, NJ
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.
Bitterly disappointed from Toronto, Ontario
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.
T Donahue from Dallas
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!
Jack from San Diego, CA
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!
Adam from Tampa, Florida
WORST ZBB CONCERT EVER
Only played 3 songs the crowd loved. The opening act was a joke and he brought him back on stage. Fourth ZBB concert and last. I think the divorce ruined him. His ticket is a waste of money. Went to Chris Stapleton last week. Would have paid 3x as much for that ticket. Amazing!!!!
Marina from Jupiter, Florida
WASTE OF MONEY!
We went to the October 19th show at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. I have to say this concert was the most disappointing show I have ever been to. We spent 112$ for two lawn tickets to hear the Zac Brown Band play, but what we got was a cover band from the 80's and 90's. This was by far the biggest waste of money and we left early to boot. Shame on them! ZBB has plenty of really awesome music of their own, why they felt the need to fill so much of their show with other bands music is beyond me. I will not be returning to one of their shows.
Chrissy from Boston, Massachusetts
NO ENERGY- DISAPPOINTING !!
Gone are the days of an energy packed entertaining Zac Brown - a “zac robot” would have given a better performance . The music was ok but Zac clearly not engaged !! You’d think there would have been EXCITEMENT on the part of him and the band - nope - he sold Tix , sang songs and put on an uninspiring show….I Was a loyal( money spending ) Zac fan for over 15 yrs but no more! Hang it up Zac !! Get rid of the girl in the band - bad , bad !!
Insulted Intelligence from Hershey, Pennsylvania
WILL NEVER BE FOOLED AGAIN
The tour should be called, "Open Mic Night, hosted by Zac Brown." 11 ZBB songs, 15 cover songs and most of them not sung by Zac Brown himself. The openers each sang a song, a female guitarist, the drummer, the backup bass player, the catering manager, a sound tech, a lady from row 13. Everyone got their turn to sing! The qualify of their singing was what you'd expect. Mediocre at best. Just a horrible waste of money. Saw them at Hersheypark Stadium like 5 years ago and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen.
