– 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.
