– Kenny Chesney is adding three soccer stadiums to the U.S. for his Sun Goes Down 2024 tour.
The shows will be at Major League Soccer stadiums in Cincinnati at TQL Stadium on June 29, Salt Lake City at America First Field on July 16 and Columbus, Ohio's Historic Crew Stadium where Chesney has previously played on Aug. 8.
Chesney also is playing three shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., which is also home of the New England Patriots football team and a venue Chesney has played for years.
"In a lot of ways, soccer stadiums are the best of both worlds," Chesney said. "You have the same kind of intimacy that you get in an amphitheater, but it's big enough you have the ability to really hit the accelerator in terms of energy, music, connecting. It's a relatively new thing for us to have soccer stadiums, but these are markets where I know there are people who aren't getting tickets, and everyone in No Shoes Nation knows how I feel about no citizen of our crew left behind."
"People have choices," Chesney said. "You never want to take fans or the marketplace as a given, and you always want to remember who you do this for: the people who love the music. I want to give people the best night of their summer...because they're giving me some of the greatest nights of my life. And the response to Sun Goes Down made me decide to try some things."
Megan Moroney and old friend and "When The Sun Goes Down" partner Uncle Kracker will open the shows.
Chesney just released a new song, "Take Her Home."
