Show Goes On For Injured Chesney
Country star KENNY CHESNEY injured his foot during a concert in South Carolina on Saturday night (26Apr08) on machinery lifting him up onto the stage.
The brave singer freed his stuck limb and carried on performing, but limped throughout the show, while a doctor was called and waited in the wings.
When he finished singing, Chesney's boot was cut off and his foot treated.
He said after the gig, "I took one look at those fans, and there was no way I wasn't going on. Sometimes the energy and the adrenalin pull you through.
"They had come to rock, and there was no way I was sending them home with anything less than the best of what me and my guys came to do - put it all out there and give them back at least as good as they gave us.
"Honestly, through the pain, through all of it, Columbia, South Carolina, totally got me through."
