HIGH ENERGY LOW SOUND QUALITY
Kenny had amazing energy and the band was tight. Sound... Not so good. Vocals sounded like a cheap ccar radio or singing into a tin can. The venue is beautiful and the facilities were clean and easy to get to. The biggest letdown though was seeing all the trash concert goers left on the lawn and especially in the parking lot. To top it all off, it was almost an hour and a half to get out of the parking lot. Lakeview needs to step up their game on traffic control and fans need to step up their game and pick up after themselves. Thanks Kenny and Old Dominion for coming to Syracuse! Despite problems listed, you put on a great show!

TOO LOUD IN DETROIT TOO....
I thought it was an issue with Ford Field and hopped on the internet to see how other concert goers felt. My experience echoes most every review from this tour. Positives first, Ford Field handled the crowd great! Entry/Exit was a breeze. (We did leave with 30min left in the show) Old Dominion and Thomas Rhett put on solid performances and sounded great!.....So what happened with Kenny Chesney??? The band was infuriatingly loud; my ears are still ringing 2 days later. I was not up front, rather in the stands quite far back where I needed to watch the screens to see KC. You could barely hear him sing and what voice he did have seemed like shouting instead of the smooth/calm vocals that allow you to relax. I felt anxious and couldn't wait to leave. He seemed to be trying too hard. Its unfortunate because I really enjoy his music and listened to his live album on Spotify religiously, which was a mistake, as he said the same exact things when talking to the crowd. Rum ads annoying..

KENNY CHESNEY CENTURYLINK FIELD, SEATTLE WASHINGTON 07/07/18
We have seen Kenny 6xs prior to tonight, his concerts have been memorable and enjoyable. Kenny failed to engage with entire audience, as we were in "the Sandbar" in front row and spent majority of his performance looking behind us in order to see him, this was super disappointing as well as when he spoke to audience the words he spoke, were the EXACT SAME WORDS he spoke to Gillette stadium on his live Cd that we listened to in car on way up to concert.. "Scripted" it made that "Connection w/the audience" seemed generic. Here is a quote from kenny in an interview “Every time, I want people to have the best night of their lives,” Chesney says. “I take that very seriously. I’ve heard enough stories about people planning their summer around coming to see us, and when you know that, you wanna always give ’em more and better, trying to think what else? But, you know, these songs are the reason people come — and I don’t ever want to take away from the music. He didn't hold true to his words.

Seeing Chesney in concert was on my husband's bucket list. We left very disappointed. It was way too loud, the band drowned him out and it was impossible to understand the lyrics or appreciate the great voice we know he possesses. It seemed odd to us because the sound for Old Dominion and Rhett was fine.

This was a high energy concert but the sound wasn’t set up good enough to hear the vocals. Even when the performers were singing without the band playing you couldn’t understand what they were saying. Kind of like a cheap stereo turned all the way up in your car, loud but distorted. I like loud music but would also like to hear the words to the song.

KENNEY CHESNEY SEATTLE
We drove from Portland to Seattle for this concert but it wasn't worth the $200+ per ticket we paid. We had decent seats but the sound quality at Century Link Stadium was awful. Kenny's concert was amped up, loud, couldn't understand the words, he didn't introduce his band and overall it was a big disappointment. Will not pay to see him again.

KENNY CHESNEY AT MILE HIGH STADIUM, DENVER
Saw Kenny Chesney for the first time last night, at Mile High Stadium in Denver (formerly Sports Authority), and had a great seat too: 6th Row, Center, just behind the Sandbar. With Chesney's catalog of great songs, his smooth country crooning voice and well-known high energy in concert to deliver them, this should have been a fantastic show! INSTEAD, the musical volume was CRANKED UP SO LOUD, that I could barely hear his vocals throughout EVERY song and I'm still left "wondering what Kenny Chesney sounds like in concert?!?"All I heard last night was music presented at such a RIDICULOUSLY HIGH VOLUME, that Chesney almost looked like he was "lip-singing", or miming his own songs---vocals were that drowned out! The electric guitars, bass and drums were SO INFURIATINGLY LOUD, that it sounded like ONE COMPLETE DISTORTED MESS! Somehow, I could faintly tell that he has a very good band behind him, but because the volume was so "STUPID-LOUD," I'll never be sure of that either. BIG LETDOWN!
