  1. I would love the city power brokers make a move to put on a real concert instead of a conglomeration of has beens. Kenny Chesney is a true megastar. Last years event was larger than life. You have two Jersey sons who are megastar status. Put the gears in motion to bring Bon Jovi or Springsteen to the Wildwood Beaches for a free concert. Now that would be worth the effort to fight the crowds. but hoobastank and fuel? A word of advice to any who venture down.......park at a meter and take the $35 fine instead of letting the pay parking lots gouge you for $80 to park at the boards.
