Chesney adds third Gillette date
Tuesday, November 14, 2023
– For the first time ever, Kenny Chesney will play a third show in Foxborough, Mass. at Gillette Stadium.
"Here I only put one show up, thinking maybe this was the year," Chesney said. "Now here we are doing something we've never done: a third show at the home of the Patriots. There has always been something special about New England, this music and how we all come together. I can't wait to spend an entire weekend in one place with all of No Shoes Nation."
"If No Shoes Nation, the most passionate people in the world, aren't 100 percent in, I want to meet them where they are. Well, they've spoken pretty loudly, so here we go, Gillette! Here's to three nights in a row. What a way to close out what's going to be a crazy, intense year of music, friends, memories and playing all night long."
Zac Brown Band, Megan Moroney and Uncle Kracker will open the shows.

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 ...
