Country music star played 100 minutes of music during Saturday night concert in Summerside
Nearly 3,000 attended Saturday's Toby Keith concert in Summerside and few, if any, left disappointed according to the buzz as concert goers passed through the exit afterward.
71-year-old Leona Larrett, of Edmonton, Alberta, is visiting family in the area and went to the concert with her daughter, Francine.
"Fan-tastic," was Leona's pronouncement, though she admits to being a fan anyway.
31-year-old Francine loves country music and enjoyed the concert, judging Keith to have " the biggest voice."
Ashley MacAusland, of Summerside, was taken by the fact that he sounded as good live as on one of his more than 20 recorded albums.
Security guard Bobbi Lea Henderson prefers older style country, but she was alright with what Keith put out even if she only heard the performance.
"It was good," she admitted.
Seventeen-year-old Ben Gayler, of Hunter River, thought the audience appreciated how well Keith performed.
"Very entertaining," he said.
"He played all the songs everybody knew," said Debbie Cairns, of Crapaud, P.E.I., who attended with her daughter, Kayla Cotton.
"I liked his face," Kayla breathed.
"A few times, he looked right in my eyes," she swooned.
Cairns had to agree with her daughter about the best part of the concert — Keith himself — but also applauded Credit Union Place for its efforts.
"It's amazing that Summerside can bring this quality of performer in. I can't believe it," she said.
"Everybody was on their feet."
Alex Bradley, of Lower Coverdale, N.S., summed up the experience as he and some friends were exiting Credit Union Place.
"It's Toby Keith. Y’gotta love him."
