Kenny Chesney may be taking 2017 off from touring, but he already has quite a few gigs lined up and he’s adding more.
According to al.com, Kenny has put two Alabama shows on the books. The “Setting The World On Fire” singer will be performing in Tuscaloosa, Ala. at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Aug. 4 and at The Wharf on Aug. 5. Country’s new trio, Midland, will open the show for both dates.
When Kenny Chesney said last year that he would only be playing ONE stadium show in 2017, he didn’t mean he wouldn’t be performing in other locations.
“Hey New England, it’s Kenny Chesney, and I just want to say how excited I am to say that we are coming back to Foxborough, Massachusetts—Gillette Stadium—next summer, August 25 (he has since added a second show on Aug. 26) for my only stadium show in America,” Kenny said in a video message. “No other stadium shows except in Foxborough.”
While Gillette stadium will be Kenny’s only stadium show, there will be other opportunities to catch him out and about. The Tennessee native will headline the 2017 Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on April 7-9, Colorado’s Country Jam on June 15-18, the House of Blues in New Orleans on April 8 and he’s part of the Merle Haggard tribute concert in Nashville on April 6.
Tickets for the Alabama shows go on sale Friday April 14 through Ticketmaster.
