The Jason Aldean Concert at Fair Park on Saturday Got Pretty Wild

Attention white people: It might be time to take heed of all those stay-away-from-Fair Park warnings you heard growing up, because when you take the pop-country stylings of Jason Aldean, whose Night Train Tour made a stop at Gexa Energy Pavilion Saturday night, and mix in a little alcohol, you become a danger to yourself and others.

This isn't just knee-jerk vilification of country music fans. It's well documented by police, who were called to Gexa no fewer than six times during and in the immediate aftermath of Aldean's concert.

A couple of the instances were admittedly mild. During the show, one 24-year-old woman asked the person in front of her to move. Instead, she threw beer. Another woman had her new iPhone snatched from her hand as she walked to her car. A third incident involved a man, presumably drunk, falling in the parking lot and requiring police assistance.

The other cases were more violent. According to police, four men piled out of a pickup and beat a 33-year-old man from Buffalo, Texas, hitting him at least once with a baton, to the point that he needed stitches. His crime? Yelling at the driver to be careful after he almost ran him over.

A while later, 29-year-old Randy Shack allegedly hit a cop in the left eye hard enough to draw blood. He was arrested and charged with assaulting a public servant.

What did Fair Park have to do with the actions? 

Everybody is trashy nowadays. I am in my mid-fifties, and I used to attend everybody's concerts. I had no need to fear for my safety. Now you have to be an Evel Knievel personality, or one of the fools acting up, to be comfortable in these venues. 

It happens everywhere. Look at the scuffles in Parliaments, and the death of the Dodgers fan a little over a month ago. Check out the vandalism after Stanley Cup wins. 

I don't understand how this is having fun, anymore than freebasing. Go and hear the damn guy sing, get in your car and replay the concert on the way home. Yay!

Well some say I'm not country
and that's just fine with me
'Cause I don't wanna be country
with some faggot looking over at me
They say that I'm ill-mannered
that I'm gonna self-destruct
But if you know what I'm thinkin'
you'll know that pop country really sucks

So I'm here to put the "dick" in Dixie
and the "cunt" back in country
'Cause the kind of country I hear now days
is a bunch of fuckin' shit to me
They say that I'm ill-mannered
that I'm gonna self-destruct
But if you know what I'm thinkin'
you'll know that pop country really sucks

Well we're losing all the outlaws
that had to stand their ground
and they're being replaced by these kids
from a manufactured town
And they don't have no idea
about sorrow and woe
'Cause they're all just too damn busy
kissin' ass on Music Row

So I'm here to put the "dick" in Dixie
and the "cunt" back in country
'Cause the kind of country I hear nowdays
is a bunch of fuckin' shit to me
And they say that I'm ill-mannered
that I'm gonna self-destruct
But if you know what I'm thinkin'

Jason Aldean's schtick is to appeal to the "rough riding" cowboys. He's as gay as the day is long.

So two bad incidents....were there any gang wars or riots?

Seriously?! Last I heard the concert was cancelled due to severe weather. Fans of other music genres would have reacted with vandalism and riots. Several hip-hop concerts that ended in gunfire just this year come to mind.....and this report is about a woman throwing a beer? The horror! While the two incidents of assault are regrettable, they are hardly worth indicting a crowd of thousands for. Ridiculous.

This had nothing to do with Fair Park or the supposed dangers there and around it -- the danger came from the stupid people who came to Fair Park and brought the danger with them. It would appear that the people living around Fair Park are the ones in danger.

Six incidents in a crowd of beer drinking partiers at a concert is news?

@popcountryreallysuck Well ole geezer they say you are ill-mannered cause you are and they say you are gonna self destruct because you are going to self destruct. They don't know what you are thinking because you are not in touch with reality. Move over old geezer you are done.

@ScottsMerkin No Country music is still alive. But, you won't find it on the pop country stations. They play some of the good stuff coming out of Texas on 95.3.

This particular species of white person isn't scary...just dumb and violent. They think Obama's a Mooselim and vote for Louie Gohmert and Ted Cruz. On second thought, that is a little scary.

@ScottsMerkin @Tim.Covington   Go up to Love and War (Plano) on Sunday afternoons. Several of the artists you hear on 95.3 play there on a regular basis. And this is the time of year that sitting on the patio is nice.

@gabe48 @ruddski  

Is that bullying?  Sending a poster underground, forcing him to hide his profile?  So sad...

And to think I just thought he was being ironic...

@ruddski For lulz, click on ruddski's name and look at his posts. The hypocrisy of this comment is hilarious; he lacks an opinion of his own and is just as partisan as the leftists he despises.

tdkisok is typical of the left, in that he has no opinion until you do.
