FLORA-BAMA FAMILY IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE
KENNY CHESNEY’S FLORA-BAMA-JAMA BEACH CONCERT
AUGUST 16TH, 2014
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
KENNY CHESNEY FANS:
Per Kenny Chesney's PR Agent:
"Kenny Chesey is going to have an awesome show on the beach…but we need everyone who's coming to be patient - and to remember: The No Shoes Nation is a place where people respect each other, have fun AND enjoy the music.
If you HAVE a wristband, prepare for long lines, a hot day, & a lot of people. PATIENCE IS REQUIRED; A SENSE OF HUMOR IS A MUST/HELPS.
NO COOLERS. NO TENTS. NO CHAIRS. NO CRUMMY ATTITUDE! This is a fun day - and we want everyone to have the time of their life.
Due to the traffic and area road being crowded for summer, if you are not at the event by mid day or early afternoon (say 2) you may not make it by show time.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT BRING MINOR CHILDREN AND INFANTS TO THIS EVENT DUE TO THE HEAT, TRAFFIC, WALK, WAIT, AND LACK OF SHADE.
If you DON'T HAVE a wristband: Stay home. Please. You will not be able to see or hear the show…You will only make the traffic worse & compound the lines. There is nowhere to be. ALSO, THIS SHOW IS BEING TAPED AS A TV SPECIAL. You'll be able to experience the Flora-Bama-Jama at home. Be safe. Be smart. Be happy."

Per Kenny Chesney's PR Agent:
"Due to the tang of a CMP special, no outside media will be allowed to bring video or still camera equipment into the Kenny Chesney Flora-Bama-Jama. We regret the inconvenience, but we also know that you understand the reality of trying to capture a concert for broadcast under the best circumstances - and being outdoors, there are more than enough variables already in play.
Anyone arriving with professional cameras or using same on the grounds without proper credentials will have their equipment impounded/asked to leave the premises. Footage handouts are available upon request and professional high res images will be made available on the wire, immediately following the event. We appreciate your cooperation, and look forward to having an incredible concert on here at the Flora-Bama."
