Last Night: Kenny Chesney at Discovery Green

Kenny Chesney Discovery Green April 3, 2011

Check out our slideshows from this weekend's Big Dance Concert Series: the bands and the fans.

A little before 9 p.m., Kenny Chesney took to the stage donning a tattered, straw cowboy hat and a faded, sleeveless shirt to match as the crowd went wild, spilling beer, flicking cigarettes and jumping up and down in their daisy-dukes.

With all the alcohol spilled, we're wondering what Discovery Green will look like today. Is that bad for the grass? Who knows?
