    KENNY'S NEW STAGE "BIGGER THAN VAN HALEN'S"



    Kenny ChesneyKenny Chesney's come a long way from performing in college with only one acoustic guitar and a set of cover songs. His new "Somewhere In The Sun" tour will be his biggest undertaking yet. The stage takes 15 trucks to haul and was co-designed by Kenny. It was built by the same company that has created stages for KISS, Fleetwood Mac and Madonna. The set will feature vertical video screens, hydraulic lifts and a sound system that can generate 280,000 watts. "We're gonna be able to give the fans the best show ever," Kenny promised. "We're having to play a lot more arenas this year, because the outdoor venues can't handle the staging and light trusses. It's bigger than Van Halen's...tour, which I saw when I was in high school-and I thought that was about the biggest thing I'd ever seen!" Kenny added that there will be over 240-feet of stage frontage due to the extended "T." "If you wanna see the energy go through the roof, we're thinking this'll do it," he said.

    Not 'closet' fan, he's a fan.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    He's a big VH fan. I would suspect he saw the VH of old when they had mountains of shit on stage. If I'm correct, you kind of get a view of it in the classic concert footage which became the video for "Unchained." I also believe he's played at Cabo as well.

    He's good friends with Sammy. He was on the recent VH-1 I Married... show (Sammy Hagar episode). They showed singing with Sammy at Cabo and also writing songs with Sammy at Sammy's house in Cabo.

    That was him? I knew it was a country dude, but not sure who. Thanks! That's pretty cool.
    The only reason why I said that he's a "closet" VH fan, is because I guess in the country world, it's still kind of taboo for people, especially country artists, to like ROCK music and rock stars. Then again, Sammy is "safe", because he's a classy and conservative class act. Heck, if Toby Keith can hang with Sammy & Ted Nugent, and Tim McGraw with other rock stars, then maybe things are more open-minded in the country world. Now if a country artists was buds with Marilyn Manson, the incarnate, some would say, their career would be over!
