Hey everyone! I've been meaning to get on here and write a review from this past Saturday's show in Philadelphia but I've been so busy with work. So finalyl got some time and here is my review!

Got down to Philly with my mom and dad around 4pm I think. Gary Allen was in the middle of his performance so I missed him. We picked up the tickets and backstage passes at the will call window that my Uncle left us. I happened to run into some other friends of mine at the show so I talked with them while Gary Allen finished. Our seats were on the floor 33 rows back on my Uncle Brad's side of the stage which was good. My Uncle called me asking if we were there and he met with us at one of the backstage entrances and took us back. Security was ridiculous at this show. Normally at the venues on the past Keith tour all you needed was the VIP/backstage pass and security never gave you any problems. SO I had to call my Uncle cause this guy was a pain in the ***. He comes meets us and was like they are my family and the guy is like oh ok. So he just took us back to the bus. Keith's lawyer was on the bus talking about some guitar Keith bought. Then Jerry came aboard the bus good to see him, he's such an awesome guy. Talked to him for a little. Then we got off the bus and just wandered around all the other buses behind the stadium. There were so mannnnnnyyy buses it was crazy. Keith's guys don't even travel by bus on this tour. They just fly in the day before and stay at the hotel and come to the stadium one by one and meet at their bus which drives to all the stadiums they are playing it. Soooo anyways my Uncle walked us around backstage. Chesney's dressing room looked like a tropical island/pirate ship. Wierd haha. But my Uncle had to go meet with the rest of Keith's guys and we went back to our seats. Leann Rimes was really good actually I liked her performance. Couldn't say the same for Sammy Haygar or however you spell his name. I actually met with my friends and we wandered around the stadium left his performance. Then finally Keith came on around 7:45ish. In my opinion the indoor arena concerts are much much better. The sound in the arenas opposed to the football field is so much better. Keith's giant HD screen looked clearer than ever though. My mom was like you can really see Keith's blue eyes!! haha. I was not prepared for such a short Keith concert! Unfortunatley the stadium seemed to be packed with more Chesney fans than anyone else. Too be honest, I really don't know why. I realy do not care for Chesney in his music. In comparison to Keith's performance Chesney plain old stinks. He's got too much going on on stage. I would never pay to see just Chesney play at a concert. That and the type of crowd he attracts. I'd say 75% of the crowd was beyond drunk. It was disgusting. People tripping all over each other bumping into me constantly (my seat was on the aisle) They need to do something about the alcohol problems. My parents and I stayed for 3 of Chesney's songs then left. We went back to my Uncle's hotel and met with him. He took us out to this cute little pizza place across the street and we split a pizza. Talked about how none of us like Chesney and Keith def. outperformed everyone with out a doubt. We just chatted some more cause it's prob the last time I will see my Uncle for awhile. He came up to my car in the garage. I drove my Uncle back down to the lobby and we said out goodbyes. As I was about to pull out I saw my buddy Chris Rodriguez in the lobby talking to my Uncle. I hopped out and went to say hello. He was like Heyyy Adam! Those guys are like my extended family now. Jerry and Chris are like two more Uncle's in the band! haha Chris looked out of it though. Looked like someone took blood from his arm. He had like gauze rapped around his forearm. Good to see them though. We hopped back on the road and headed home. Overall I must say it was a cool experience with the other performers. I def. prefer the arena venue better though.

Well thanks for reading all that!

Thanks for the review Adam. I agree with you about liking the indoor arena shows better. I went to the Phoenix stadium show and the sound wasn't as good, Keith's set was too short and it was just so big! I heard that Chris got a shock from some equipment at that show so maybe that's why he had the gauze around his arm. I hope he's OK now.

Thanks for the review....I had bought 2 tix to this show way back in February when first went on sale, but ended up selling them last month ...I deciced against dealing with the heat, all the other artists there (all day& all night show), the drunk people, an outdoor show mayhem, traffic, no one to go with, hotel money, etc, and turned those tix into cash instead.
Hopefully I will get to see Keith at another show later on down the road.

Hey everyone! Thanks for reading my review glad you enjoyed it!
And Kathleen, you didn't miss much with these outside shows. I mean it was great to see Keith perform as always but not infront of drunken kenny chesney crowd. I miss the arenas that where packed with Keith fans that know every lyric to every song and sing along

Thanks for the review, Adam. And I agree with you on the stadium shows. To much partying for me!!

I had heard about Chris getting shocked from his mic the night of the show. That was a scary!!

Met your uncle Brad at the Roanoke and Charleston WV shows. Love his guitars. Very nice guy!!

No problem! Glad I could share my thoughts somewhere with some people that share the same thoughts haha. And Sherri, I'm happy you got to meet my Uncle! I agree I am very jealous of his guitars hah. I think he lost count of how many he owns I think it might close to 50 if not more haha. I have 5 so I'm trying to catch him hah
