Durning a summer when many music acts are getting press for their “green tour”, Kenny Chesney, under that big ol’ hat, brags about how much power his concerts waste. His 2008 tour Poems and Piratessucks up some serious wattage in a year of economic uncertainty and crazy energy costs.  An unfortunate price of putting on a big show is the electric usage, but you don’t have to go and crow about how awesome it is.  That’s just what Chesney did, when he issued to the press some Fun Facts describing the bones of backstage.  Besides the basics of how many video screens he uses and the size of the stage, here are a few bullet points you must read to grasp the scale of what I’m getting at:

“We use 5000 amps of 3 phase power to run the show. (The average home has a 200 amp main breaker. That’s enough power to run a neighborhood of 25 homes with everything on all at the same time.)”

“We have 2,500,000,000 (2,500 kW or 2.5 megawatts) of generation power. This is 41,600 average household light bulbs or 150 average homes in America.”

“We will consume approximately 28,000 gallons of diesel fuel over the course of the summer. This is enough to power a [sic] 18 MPG diesel car 504,000 miles — a little over a trip back and forth to the moon, or 20 time [sic] around the globe.”

Can you say “out of touch”?
