On Saturday afternoon, I was lucky enough to snag some free tickets to the Brothers of the Sun Tour @ FexEx for Sunday. While I like country music, I don't know every word to every song... but who doesn't know a tune or two by Tim McGraw or Kenny Chesney? We went on a double date with my brother and his girlfriend - such a great time!
We had club level tickets which included leather seats, marble floors in the restrooms, and ice cold air conditioning. I'm sure it probably wasn't a traditional country music experience (I also didn't have a single beer), but it was perfect to ease me into the crowd. If you aren't a fan of country music, I'm pretty sure seeing Tim McGraw in tight white jeans will change your mind.
There was a really neat general admission section near the stage called the "sandbar" which should have been more appropriately named the "standbar" because there was no seating at all, standing room only. The concert started at 4:30 and went on until about 11.... so long. At first, I was envious of their proximity to the stage, but after the 2nd act, I was happy to be seated on cushy leather while I watched the sandbar-ers fighting for their space.
The only downfall of our great seats was the terrible pictures that came from them. I only took my cell phone ... so if you want to see some decent pictures, you can check out WMZQ (although it doesn't look like their pics are much better than mine).
