CMA Music Festival
Greased Lightning Stages
at Riverfront Park
June 12, 2005

In spite of the weather, the show goes on at the Greased Lightning Stages at Riverfront Park. Fans and bands donned rain suits and enjoyed themselves anyway!

The stages were actually floating barges, and fans lined the riverbanks to see the show.

The band opened up with the swinging "Never Had It Laid On Me" and performed three singles from Sweet Memories: "Still," "Only Time Will Tell" and ""She Ain't You."
Con tells the crowd he's happy to be there and is glad they're hanging with him, even if they are getting a little wet!
There was an on-and-off light rain all afternoon, but the fans covered up and and enjoyed themselves anyway.
