Chesney adds Gillette date to close tour
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
– Before the tickets have gone on-sale, response to the Gillette Stadium finale in Massachusetts of Kenny Chesney's 2020 Chillaxification Tour resulted in adding a second show on Saturday, Aug. 29.
"It's amazing to me how much the people there and where I'm from have in common," Chesney said of his connection with Gillette where he has played 19 times. "Passionate people who care about each other, who work hard, play hard and see music as something that brings them together. I am always amazed at the way these final tour days in Boston hit us so strong and so hard. Rather than waiting, based on the calls, texts and tweets, we figured we should just go ahead and get this second show on sale, too."
Chesney has 21 stadium dates with more to be added.
American Express card members can now purchase tickets before the general public. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, Oct. 4.

However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music.
Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
