Chesney Strikes Oil

Kenny Chesney returned to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Sept. 19 as promised and, also as promised, sound upgrades at the football stadium have received applause from fans and local officials alike.

The country superstar’s last visit was marred by sound problems, with some patrons demanding refunds.

This time, $200,000 in stadium authority funds for upgrades combined with Chesney’s $500,000 to boost his tour’s audio output did the trick, with the help of a complete audio analysis by The Messina Group.

“We are thankful everyone from the Messina Group, the [Indiana Stadium and Convention Building Authority] and the stadium were able to recognize the changes needed to be made and that promises were fulfilled,” said Lucas Oil Stadium director Mike Fox. “It was a great concert in what is now a great concert venue.”
