Show promoter plans to make right with fan thrown out of concert for looking too much like Kenny Chesney
As I told you earlier, teacher Nathan Blankenship had his ticket confiscated and was escorted from LP Field during this weekend's Brothers of the Sun tour in Nashville after he was accused of impersonating Kenny Chesney and causing too much of a distraction.
Nathan denied impersonating anyone, saying he couldn't help it if he looked like Kenny and fans mistook him for the country singer.
This afternoon I got an email from the promoter of the show saying they've reached out to Nathan to try and make things right.
NASHVILLE, TN - Being made aware through the media that fan Nathan Blankenship was removed from the 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour show in Nashville on Saturday night, the promoter of the show is contacting Blankenship to resolve the matter. No one in Chesney's management or promoter camp was aware that this fan had been escorted from the show until after it had been reported by the media.
Concert promoter Kate McMahon, Vice President of Marketing for the The Messina Group said, "We never want our fans to leave disappointed and we are reaching out to him to make this situation right."
Such an odd story that's developed here over something as silly as looking a little too much like your idol. Hope they really do make it up to the guy.
On a side note, Nathan really does look remarkably like Kenny when he has his hat on. Maybe the guy can capitalize on his appearance and sudden publicity and start playing birthday parties and corporate events.
