Big Star Chesney Spends Big Bucks on Stadium Show
Jessica Phillips | June 24, 2009
Fans in Indianapolis paid big money for a big Chesney show last year, only to come away disappointed in the sound quality at Lucas Oil Stadium. Now the stadium's management, along with Chesney's production crew, is putting in about $700,000 towards sound improvements
at the stadium in preparation for Chesney's September 19th concert. Yes, $700,000 worth of work for one
show. The improvements include new draperies that block sound bounceback and more speakers for people in the upper rows.
Chesney's crew is coughing up the lion's share of the money for the improvements, totaling about $500,000 worth. Chesney's production manager, Ed Wannebo said, "We are concerned and Kenny wants to make sure the show is the best it can be. We have a pretty good reputation for doing a good job and always having fun and fans having a good time at the shows. We're here to make sure that happens."
Good for Kenny and his crew for putting their money where their music is, and making sure the fans have a great time.
