Kenny Chesney's second night at Gillette Stadium and final No Shoes Nation show took off like a bobsled, slamming through four songs including the gold certified "Pirate Flag" before he took a breath.
Both nights, the crowd of 109,207 was on its
feet, singing along with the 8-time Entertainer of the Year's two
"There's energy, and then there's energy," an exhausted Chesney said,
coming offstage the second night. "The fans in Boston have always been
very, very special to us. These were our 10th and 11th shows at
Gillette; every year, it just gets more intense."
"It's an incredible
life," Chesney says. "Looking over and seeing all those faces, it was
like 'When I See This Bar' was happening right there on stage right...
and having Eric sing it with me, a guy who knows what it means to punch
it out in a little dive bar with nobody there, well, that's everything
that song is! And everybody's been there."
