Chesney adds three soccer stadiums to '24 tour

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 – 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."

CD review - Here and Now deluxe After a storied run including eight Entertainer of the Year awards and two Greatest Hits albums (so far), Kenny Chesney was due for a setback. This one wasn't strictly personal, as the "Chillaxification" Tour got waylaid by a pandemic shutdown that scrapped most everything. The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. 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. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints 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 ...
