– It will be a Flip Flop Summer for Kenny Chesney as he announced Thursday he will hit 6 stadiums as part of his 2007 Tour.
Also playing with Chesney will be a strong support line up of Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland, Sara Evans and Pat Green.
Chesney will play his first stadium show June 9 at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field, home of the Steelers.
Chesney will bring the same line-up to Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, on June 23; Seattle's Qwest Field, on July 7; Cleveland, Ohio's Browns Stadium on July 14; Foxboro's Gillette Stadium, on July 28; and Detroit's Ford Field. on Aug. 18.
The onsale date is set for Feb. 10 with Philadelphia and Seattle hitting one month later on March 10. Cruzan Rum will once again sponsor the tour.
"There's nothing like it," Chesney allows. "You know, getting all those people together for a little party, they start tail-gating, cooking out early, and then we rock straight through the night. Anyone who's ever been knows it's a helluva good time."
Chesney sold out Boston in advance the past two years and Seattle and Detroit last year and Pittsburgh the year before. This year's new stadium markets are Cleveland and Philadelphia.
"We've got a few surprises, some new tricks, a few different songs, and we're gonna be making it the summer of our lives. We're ready to join the fans in having a good time because we believe, and we always have, the more the merrier with shows like this."
