Zac Brown Band Lock Down Louisiana
Fans love their 'Chicken Fried' fish? Well, not exactly. Zac Brown Band played a free 30 minute concert at the CenteryTel Center in Louisiana on Saturday during the the 39th Bassmaster Classic. Late arriving fans from the Classic were left outside when admirers of the country band flooded the arena, forcing the Fire Marshall to lock down the building. Attendance hit 9,500 so quickly that staff was ordered to shut the doors and lock the gates.
When General Manager Mike Cera was asked if the main draw was Zac Brown Band or the Bassmaster Classic, he answered, "I think both. Obviously, the fish people are waiting to get in."
Lucky for those Classic fans who were waiting to get in. Many came solely for the high power show and left to make room for the second day weight in.
Zac Brown Band is nominated for the ACM Top New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year. We'll have the world premiere of their new video, 'Whatever It Is,' right here on The Boot this Friday.
