From Kenny's label....The official view...KC in SF

San Francisco: With an actual carnival set-up on the adjacent parking lot, Kenny Chesney's Sun City Carnival sailed into San Francisco under perfect skies and a gentle breeze. The Corona Extra sponsored tour has already had sold-out NFL stadium stops at Chicago's Soldier Field, Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field and Pittsburgh's Heinz Field - and even with Sugarland canceling day of, Chesney slotted at impressive 36, 258 in a city that's not known for its country fanbase.

“We totally understand about Jennifer,” says Chesney of his good friend and tour-mate veteran. 0She needs to take care of her voice, and I completely support that. It let Miranda and Lady A have some extra time… to really stretch out and show people a little bit more of their stuff… which was great 'cause I think every act out here is
that good!”

For a second trip into the market, the 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music and 4-time and reigning Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year not only increased his ticket sales, but as legendary rock critic and Senior Pop Music Correspondent for
The San Francisco Chronicle Joel Selvin - who did a major profile on Chesney for his inaugural turn at the San Francisco stadium - said, “Hereally knows how to play these stadiums, and that is not easy. I've seen 'em all (over the last 30 years!”

Joining Chesney - who last year had good friend Sammy Hagar and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller along for the show - this year was good friend and recent #1 record mate Mac McAnally, who joined Ches ney for their chart-topping “Down The Road” and the McAnally-penned, Chesney concert staple “Back Where I Come From.” In addition, Wailers Band man Drummie Zeb, who's spending his summer playing percussion on the Sun City Carnival, stepped out for some free-styling and dancing on the runway during “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven.”

“This was one of the prettiest days we've had on this tour,” says the man who still has more NFL stadiums including Detroit's Ford Field, Indianapolis' Lincoln Old Stadium and Boston's Gillette Stadium. “This has been a tough summer for the fans… in terms of being worried about their jobs, worried about money… and the idea that we can give people a day off from that, to come out with their friends and have some fun… You know, any day we can make somebody's world rock a little bit, well,
that's a good day.”

With a “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series in Central Park appearance on August 14 - right before his 5th flash sell-out in Foxboro, MA show - Kenny Chesney is keeping the summer alive. With the recent multiple week #1 “Out Last Night” from his
Billboard all-genre Top 200 debuting Greatest Hits II, there is plenty of music to go around.”

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
