As awesome as Sioux Falls is, there are just certain things that you can only do in large cities with venues that support thousands of people.

When I first heard that Nelly, The Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line were going to be on tour and stopping in Minneapolis, I laughed. I told myself that buying a ticket to that wouldn't be worth the time or money.. but boy was I wrong.

Despite the conflicting messages between the different genres of music here, it hands down was the best concert that I've ever been to and I partied like a rock star. The singing, the fireworks, the lights, the flame throwers, the attitudes and the environment it's self was well worth it.

All of the artists did a great job of engaging with the crowd and you could tell that they were all very excited to be there. The crowd, that was extremely liquored up, embraced all three of the artists in a way that I've never seen before.

No matter what was being sung, everyone in the crowd was waving their hands and singing at the top of their lungs. At one point Nelly brought a girl up onto stage and sung Over and Over Again to her.

I even pulled a play out of the Jeff Thurn playbook and swindled my way down into the general admission area so I could be right in front for the action.
