We went to see the Brad Paisley Concert at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas. It was our first big show of the year. These are not good economic times! But Hey, It was Brad! This is about the 6th time for us to see him live and I rank his show on the same level as U2, Paul McCartney shows for pure entertainment and playing at a high, high level. The opening acts were Jerrod Niemann, and Blake Shelton. I could have listened to Judge Jerrod for twice as long and Blake showed another side of his act by doing "Play That Funky Music White Boy"!
Did I say it was an outdoor concert? Did I say hot? Bottled water at $4 bucks! 100+ degrees!
Brad did about 22 songs. I have talked about him before and will just say for my OKIE friends:
He will bring this show to Tulsa in January and you WILL like it!
The other star is Frisco, Texas and Pizza Hut Park. This park is home to Dallas' Pro Soccer team and is built as a multi use stadium. It holds 20,000 for soccer and up to 30,000 for a concert. The stage is permanent and the place is easy in and out. Parking lots are on both sides. Concession/toilets are great! Shade structures on the plaza. It is next door to a large
entertainment district with plenty of restaurants. It even borders an expressway.
But it had one major flaw! I have documented that my beverage of choice is Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi------NOT Diet RC! Who knew that they even made it? So for me it was $4.00 waters and $5.00 Lemonades. By the Way, the Beer Drinkers were paying $11.00 for a beer!
Did I say it was hot? CRAP it was hot.
By the way this night there was about 25,000 present and about 8,000 of them were "Taylor Swift" wannabees.
