Saturday, August 17 2013 Ford Field. Downtown Detroit, MI.
The “No Shoes Nation” was definitely out in full force to welcome Kenny Chesney and the rest of the No Shoes Nation Tour to the Motor city. Tailgating started as early 11:00 for the 80,000 people in attendance for this amazing concert. To add to all of the excitement taking place downtown one of the parking lots allowing tailgating was converted into a man made beach equipped with sand and palm trees. The closer you moved to Ford Field the more you were able to experience with 99.5 WYCD Detroit’s Country Station hosting live performances prior to doors opening. One of the more notable bands on the WYCD stage was The Usual Suspects. Their music moved the crowds and got them geared up for Kenny Chesney. Doors opened at three at the first act took the stage promptly at 5:00pm. 4hrs and 5 acts later, the crowd erupts as Kenny Chesney takes the stage and gives his fans a performance to remember. One lady who wanted to remain anonymous said “This show was amazing, it was the first time I ever seen him perform. He rocks!” If you ever have the opportunity to enjoy a Kenny Chesney concert take it.
