Chesney beams NYC show over Internet

Monday, September 14, 2009 – Kenny Chesney will beam his Times Square show Tuesday across the Internet. Chesney is putting his show on his own Takes No Shoes Radio live as part of the Hard Rock Ambassadors of Rock starting at 6 p.m. Uncle Kracker also will play.

"Part of the idea of the station is to bring people deeper into this music," Chesney said, "to give them more or a sense beyond the records and the big shows. We play stuff from my I-Pod, demos, things they'd never hear otherwise...and for but a very few hundred people, this Hard Rock show would certainly be one of those moments: something we'd all talk about how cool it was for years, knowing almost nobody got to hear it. Now, they can."

No Shoes Radio will also broadcast former tour mate/duet partner Uncle Kracker's entire set as well. And it all kicks off at 6 pm Eastern when Jon Anthony and Mark - "Tambo" - Tamburino start playing music, calling the walk-up play-by-play and do impromptu interviews from the Hard Rock.

"It's like being there," Chesney said, "only you don't have to leave wherever you are. Set your browser, kick back or get back to work and join in all the action. As the year's closing down, this is gonna be a pretty cool contrast to how big some of the shows have been - and we're gonna have a couple surprises. So for anyone who's ever wanted to get into one of those tiny invite-only shows, this is your chance."

Chesney has two other shows remaining - Bloomington, Ill. US Cellular Center on Sept. 17 and the year-ending Lucas Oil Field show in Indianapolis on Sept 19.

CD reviews for Kenny Chesney

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 ...
