FIRST AJ CONCERT, A BIT OF A LET DOWN
My wife and I were disappointed, we waited a long time to see AJ. The opening acts took way too long, and I see comments of the crowd lacking energy (I disagree some, there were enough LED phone lights during 9/11 song to literally light up the place. I think a lot was lost in waiting nearly 1.5 hours from scheduled start time until he actually began to sing. The first act was not bad, the second was horrible, we are not sure if it was her voice or the sound system but we literally could not understand a word she sang. One must remember there venue, New Orleans as a whole like to drink (it is also Mardi Gras, might not have been best date choice), we didn't, but in 1.5 hours many had, I was dozing off it had been so long. I have seen many concerts, some I did not because of preference, but this one was a disappointment from the main performer, if there was a health issue, then I would have rather received a refund or at least an upfront apology by Alan, with perhaps a 30-40% refund.

NOT WORTH IT
He didn't try very hard. Little audience engagement. Just played through the list like he was on autopilot and wanted to be done.

I often listen to Allan Jackson. He is a great singer. His 'heart' was not in his performance on Friday. He seemed tired and I am not sure he wanted to be on that stage. I always try to watch his TV appearances.. My friend had recent surgery and was unable to stand for very long. We had floor seats, worst seats ever.
Joe from Columbus, Ohio
Show had no energy and while his voice sounded terrific he cut verses in at least 5 songs. I wanted to hear every verse... to me he looked tired , sick or injured.
TBurkhardt from Omaha, Nebraska
No energy and lack of crowd engagement. Too many breaks with silence in between songs. Barely sang through a full song. He wanted it done and over before he even took the stage.
Seen Alan Jackson? Loved it? Hated it?
