Rochester’s Biggest Selfie Happened Down By The Riverside Sunday
Now, in its 27th year, the Down By the Riverside Concert Series was home to not only Chase Bryant Sunday night, but also Rochester's biggest selfie. It was the perfect summer night for a concert, and Chase Bryant (and, of course, Minnesota's own JT & the Gunslingers) didn't disappoint during week 4 of this year's Think Mutual Bank / Down By the Riverside Concert series.
Event organizers told Val, Samm and me last night that they estimated Sunday night's crowd to be anywhere from 7,500 to 10,000 people all packed into Mayo Park, on the sunny shores of the might Zumbro River.
That's a lot of people! In fact, on his Twitter page after the show, Chase Bryant himself said the crowd of 9,000 was the 'biggest solo headlining show of his career,' so far. (Chase, of course, just got off the road, touring with Brad Paisley on his 'Weekend Warrior' World Tour, which also stopped at Treasure Island here in Minnesota last summer.)
Thanks to EVERYONE who came out last night and enjoyed a GREAT night of live country! Including Rochester's 'Biggest Selfie' I tried to take while we were on-stage right before Chase came out. Were YOU there?!? Check out my pics...
