UPDATE: Yep, they sure did. Here’s front man Tony Butala talking about it.
Last Fall, we pointed out that the Chesney show would be at least the third major concert at the stadium, and the second in just 15 years. But hey, guess what — it’ll be at least the fourth!
Because the Lettermen that took the field at Cliff Hare on Oct. 22, 1964 weren’t football players. They were, you know, the singing group The Lettermen.
Gold records. Grammy noms. Like a million songs. The Lettermen. And it was a full year before the James Brown show.
Of course the institutional amnesia might be somewhat understandable this time. The actual performance received scant attention in the Plainsman, the paper instead focusing its reviews and photos on the comely coterie of coeds that made an appearance at intermission.
But still, that’s at least three pre-Chesney concerts at Jordan-Hare. Auburn probably needs to see a doctor about this.
