When the open road beckons, Kenny Chesney has no other option than to follow. With only a few festival appearances expected later this summer, the singer, who is riding off the success of his latest studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, has added several tour stops to his itinerary. Chesney will perform the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater Aug. 4 and the Wharf Amphitheatre in Orange Beach, Ala. Aug. 5, with two nights residing at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. Aug. 10 and 11.
Tickets officially go on-sale this Friday (April 14) at 10 a.m. local time.
“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.”
He adds: “We’re gonna bring a whole year’s worth of energy. So, if you’re coming, you better be ready for it, because this is our chance in 2017 to rock.”
Chesney's new single "Bar at the End of the World" is currently eyeing the Top 10 at radio and follows the Grammy-nominated achievement of the P!nk-assisted "Setting the World on Fire."
This week, Chesney's 2016 Spread the Love Tour earned him a Top Country Tour nomination at this year's Billboard Music Awards. "Setting the World on Fire" is up for Top Country Song and Top Country Collaboration. The awards ceremony goes live May 21 on ABC at 8/7c.
