One Hot Fan....out in SF......from San Jose newspaper

There are others...in San Jose Mercury News...You take them all with a grain of salt...but where there is smoke..usually some fire... You get mad enough to write..most people dont..you have to think there were more... not entirely sure what the grip is other than it was cold...bad toilets and Sugarland cancelled...PLUS its a pain in the butt to do anything in downtown SF..the commute,expense....and stadium shows have their issues with anyone...lots of people can be good and bad..personally I say bad...drunks etc... heres a "fan" the customer if you will

from a TPHILLIPSThis was my first and last concert that I will attend at AT&T Park! My husband purchased these tickets for my birthday (Section "D" Row 34 seats 18 &19). I'm a huge Country fan (he doesn't care for Country music, but agreed to go and give it a listen). The seats were great, unfortunately the sandpit area was at the same eye-level as our expensive seats with numerous annoying drunken fools standing the entire time blocking all of us behind the fenced-off area from seeing (even if standing)! I love to stand, dance and sing along, but I also like to sit as well. If you're going to have an over-priced sandbar area, make the seats coming up to it higher! I heard people argue with security about removing the seats in there!

The venue’s concert floor seating lacked the correct number of bathrooms to accommodate the ticketed guest. The vendor location for beer, cocktails, food etc., was located behind/near the over crowded bathrooms and venue gates, making it nearly impossible to maneuver back to the floor seating without spilling your $8.25 beer!

The concert itself was lacking in organization. The wait in between bands was WAY TO LONG! I have been to lots of country concerts and have never waited in between sets more than 10 or 15 minutes. At no point did anyone announce that Sugarland had cancelled. I did not see one sign! I came to hear Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, and Sugarland’s music. I didn’t want to hear Lady Antebellum or Miranda play other band’s songs! I wanted to hear their songs, period! They are not at a level to vary off their albums yet! As far as Kenny Chesney his songs ran together, making them sound all the same! Glad he went on last, I’ll continue to purchase his music, but will never go out of my way to see him in concert again.

My husband liked Lady Ant and Miranda! Sadly for me this was my biggest concert disappointment ever! Mainly it was the venue. My husband was disappointed because he saw how disappointed I was! He saw me counting down the days! Only to have the concert date arrive and be disappointed to the point I was ready to leave and did after Kenny's third song! I’m still fans of Lady Antebellum, Miranda, & Sugarland (Get better Jennifer! Missed see you guys) and will look for them to play enclosed venues with better seating accommodations.
