– Kenny Chesney's 2009 tour will be titled the Sun City Carnival.
"Sun City Carnival pretty much sums up what we do on any given date," Chesney said on his web site. "Because if you hit a parking lot at any one of our shows, you're gonna find people grilling out, people blasting their radios, people hanging with their buddies, some who even come together from all over, just because it's so much a part of how their friendship was formed."
"To me, when you've got that much fun in the parking lot, it's a lot for me and the guys to have to match when we hit that stage. But we hear everybody partying in the afternoon, we hear the fun they're having, so when we get out there we wanna be a part of it too. We want to rock those kids as hard as they rock us long before they ever see us. And we want people going home feeling they just got the very best taste of summer. To me, that's what a Sun City Carnival is all about."
Tour dates include Calgary, Canada on July 10, Merritt, Canada on July 11, Cheyenne, Wyo. on July 24-25 and Foxboro, Mass. on Aug. 14. Tickets are on sale for all shows except Foxboro, which goes on sale Dec. 13.
Also appearing will be Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum and Montgomery Gentry.
