The weather was perfect, the Boardwalk was bustling and the beach was sparkling and gorgeous. Tens of thousands of happy people enjoyed spending the day on Atlantic City’s clean, wide beach and iconic Boardwalk. In addition to the concert, hotels were sold out and the city was jammed with entertainment, events and summer vacation-goers.

Opening for Blake Shelton, Dan & Shay got the party started at 4 p.m. The Nashville country-music duo is touring with Shelton on the current leg of his 2014 Ten Times Crazier Tour, which kicked off in June.
