You already knew the 2012 WYRK Taste of Country set a record for attendance, but no doubt about it, this year’s show will go down as our longest one in history.  And that record is likely to stand for a long time.

Beginning at 6:45 PM on Friday, June 1st and concluding at 11:15 PM on June 28th it took 655 hours to complete. The show also extended from Coca Cola Field in Buffalo to Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien, NY – a stretch of 35 miles.

And what was originally scheduled for five acts grew to a total of seven.

So a pretty good value, don’t you think?

And how about Eric Church’s return to Western NewYork?

From the rainout in Buffalo on June 1st his crew packed up and traveled to

  • St. Leonard, MD
  • Nashville, TN
  • Chattanooga, TN
  • Sparta, IL
  • Enterprise, AL
  • Atlantic City, NJ
  • Then back to Western New York at Darien Lake

Add it all up and for Church and the guys they traveled 3,793 miles between the two Western New York dates.
