Anyone else go last night? They’re so ridiculously talented and a must-see even if you’re not a fan of “country” music. They put on an incredible show and the set list was great.

On another note, the parking situation is an absolute disaster for that place.

They have a Jimmy Buffett sorta vibe to them. I’m always surprised at how many cover songs they do, although their version of Eleanor Rigby was sweet. Good energy and a feel good atmosphere.

Parking is still a problem as they are taking a looonngg time to pave the lot. I feel like they only cared about being ready for State Fair time. But with a rumored 22,000 tickets out, parking was going to be awful no matter what. 20% over max capacity.

They can get a little cover happy, especially when they have such a big catalog of their own that I love. I think it stems from their creativity, talent, and honestly boredom from playing so many live shows.

It's a fixable problem and should be resolved in a month. They just didn't get started in earnest with the paving work until the complaints rolled in. Poor planning by the county county compounded by Joanie Mahoney making "let them eat cake" comments.

Right now only about half of the parking area is ready for cars. In a month it will be done.

Getting out of Darian Lake or SPAC after a show is a long tedious process as well. 5000 cars exiting an area at the same time is a slow process anywhere. Personally I think leaving the Dome is worse.
