Country Concerts in MN: Dierks Bentley 2





I don't even know where to begin when talking about the Dierks Bentley concert. Jamie and I had the best time and Dierks was amazing! Dierks Bentley is the type of performer whose main purpose while on stage is to connect with the audience and show his appreciation for everyone being there. He ran all over the stage to make sure everyone in the place got a chance to be close to him and he would talk to audience members between songs. It was by far one of the best concerts I have been to and I would see Dierks Bentley again in a heart beat. I got to hear him sing all my favorite songs and a few new ones I haven't heard yet. If you haven't listen to "I Want To Make You Close Your Eyes" I highly highly suggest you download it ASAP since it isn't a single yet so you won't hear it on the radio. I promise you won't be disappointed it is one of Dierks best songs! I have never bought Mystic Lake Casino Showroom tickets before so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how close we were (as seen in the pictures) to the stage and as my friend Jamie said, "any seat in here would be a great seat." It is a very fun place to see a performer because the venue is a little smaller and everyone can feel like they have great seats!

Yeah it was really good, i saw him with Kenny Chesney a few years back and he was great then too. I actually just bought a row 1 ticket to Kenny today, have you seen him live? if not he is by far the best around.

Great pictures! I am glad to hear that seeing a concert at Mystic Lake is worth the money.

I bet the Dierks Bentley Mystic Lake show was even better than the Minnesota State Fair concert - just because it feels more intimate - and being intimate with Dierks Bentley is definitely at the top of my wish list!

Dan-I have seen Kenny 4 times (suppose to be 5 times but turns out I didn't make it to every concert at WeFest!) in concert and I will continue to go whenever he is in Minnesota because he puts on such a great show!
Kristy-that is also on the top of my list actually it is #1 :)
