Kenny Chesney Announces Four New Summer Shows
Those looking to get their Kenny Chesney fix this summer have four more chances to catch the buzz.
Chesney has added new dates to his 2017 calendar: Alabama’s Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Aug. 4, the Wharf Amphitheatre in Orange Beach, Ala. on Aug. 5, followed by two nights at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. on Aug. 10 and 11.
Due to the nature of these venues, the four shows will be more intimate settings than Chesney’s summer festival plays and back-to-back stadium shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.
“As long as we’re rehearsing and I’ve got new music in the pipeline, I can’t imagine not playing a little bit,” says Chesney in a press release. “I know that it takes time off to create and make records… to write and find songs like ‘American Kids’ and ‘Noise,’ but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss the fans. There is nothing that feeds me more than hearing the sound of the No Shoes Nation singing these songs, seeing those faces and knowing this is gonna be one of those nights."
Chesney is coming off of 2016's impressive stadium-only Spread the Love Tour, which saw the country icon perform for over 500,000 fans throughout the summer. General tickets for these added 2017 shows go on sale via Ticketmaster on Fri., April 14, beginning at 10AM local time.
“We’re gonna bring a whole year’s worth of energy,” adds the superstar. "So if you’re coming, you better be ready for it, because this is our chance in 2017 to rock."
Among Chesney's limited summer dates is a stop in Grand Junction, Colo., for Country Jam 2017. He'll be joined by Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, Randy Houser and Justin Moore as headliners.
