PITTSBURGH (AP) - Parking lots at Heinz Field will open only four hours before Kenny Chesney’s concert on Saturday, in hopes fans won’t engage in rowdy behavior and leave behind tons of trash like they did after his 2013 show at the stadium.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1BnD6TE ) reports the lots will open at 1 p.m. for the show which begins at 5 p.m. and also features Eric Church and other supporting acts.

Crews cleaned up more than 45,000 pounds of garbage, some of it containing human waste, after the 2013 Chesney concert when lots opened at 10 a.m.

While there was less trash after the Luke Bryan concert last year - when stadium lots opened at 11 a.m. - there was still more than anticipated prompting Mayor Bill Peduto to say, “The continued trashing of our city has to stop.”
