Chesney sells out, in eight minutes
Tuesday, November 23, 2010
– Boston has something for Kenny Chesney. The singer sold out his summer stadium show in eight minutes on Saturday. This marked the sixth time Chesney sold out Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
Of the Aug. 27, 2011 sell out, Chesney said, "I can't wait to feel the energy of Foxboro again. I missed it this year, I really did. The love affair I share with the fans in New England is like no other and that has been built over the years. I can't wait to see their faces, feel the energy and spend an evening with them next summer. It's gonna feel like coming home."
Chesney is co-headlining stadium shows with Zac Brown Band.
