Can I just say WOW. This concert was amazing. The NFL 2009 Season opener at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh: Steelers v. Tennessee Titans. To kickoff the season Tim McGraw and the Black Eyed Peas performed a free concert at Pittsburgh’s Point Park.
I was there, front row. Check out my pictures (sorry if they’re not great, I took them with my iPhone).
Tim McGraw was on first…his line up was incredible; so was the fit of his pants. Steelers fans are above and beyond! Everyone was dressed head to toe in black and gold, terrible towels swirled above our heads, Steelers chants ringing out. Tim McGraw got the crowd fired up—he even threw a few pigskins (footballs) into the crowd. Five women next to me got into a fight over one of the footballs—worse than a bridal bouquet.
Other than the minor football debacle everyone was in a great mood. Watching former Steelers ( Franco Harris, Merril Hoge) players interviewed in between concerts … Pittsburgh Nation has the best fans ever. After Tim McGraw came the Black Eyed Peas.
Will.I.Am stated that we should change our city name from Pittsburgh to Steelers City, I can’t argue with that. The Black Eyed Peas are unbelievable performers. They take on the stage with an energy that the crowd matched. They sang a bunch of songs from their new album “The E.N.D.” Fergie looked fabulous. Her body is perfectly fit. You can tell she works hard to keep herself in shape… although I imagine she burns hundreds of calories on stage. The rest of the Black Eyed Peas were amazing. Will.I.Am did a little stand up in the middle of their set…he is actually really funny. He challenged Deion Sanders to a race.
