Why are Chesney crowds so rowdy?

Why are Chesney crowds so rowdy?


Are Kenny Chesney's concerts more arresting than his music?

They are certainly a lot more rowdy than his largely innocuous style of country-pop, which at times is so mellow he makes Jimmy Buffett sound like a speed-metal fiend by comparison. Well, almost.

To be fair to Chesney - who performs his first San Diego show since 2008 tonight at Sleep Train Amphitheatre - it's his concert audiences who tend to be rowdy, not his soft-rock-tinged songs or the laid-back, "aw shucks" lifestyle he extolls.
