Review: Martina McBride makes herself at home at Demens Landing in St. Petersburg




It's been quite a week for Bill Edwards. First, city officials bend over backwards to praise the entrepreneur for the job he's done thus far managing the Mahaffey Theater. Then, on Saturday, he brought the first big concert to one of St. Pete's most curious new music venues: Demens Landing park, the annual home of American Stage in the Park.

The headliner? Country siren Martina McBride.

Sean Daly was among the 1,000-plus fans who checked out the show, and he writes:

The sound was crisp, all of McBride's safe but catchy crossover hits (This One's for the Girls, One Night, Wild Angels) sounding fine. Although pop concerts are new at Demens, American Stage in the Park has been putting on musicals there for years. They situate their stage with the crowd facing the water. Fans at McBride's show were treated to that lovely skyline. Nice tweak there.
