Kenny Chesney sells out Gillette, adds show

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 – It took Kenny Chesney eight whole minutes to sell out his upcoming show on Aug. 27 at one of his most supportive venues, Gillette, in the Boston area.

And Chesney decided to add a second show there - on Aug. 28.

The shows are part of the Corona Presents Kenny Chesney's 'Goin' Coastal' Tour. This was Chesney's sixth overall sellout at the venue, a record for any artist in any genre at the Foxboro, Mass. stadium.

Tickets for the new Gillette Stadium date, 1 of 11 stadium dates on the tour, go on sale Saturday, Feb. 5. The August 28 Gillette Stadium show will close out the massive tour.

"The last show of every year has always been special," said Chesney. "A unique shared moment and connection with the fans celebrating a summer full of music. I can't think of a better place than playing two nights at Gillette stadium to close this year's tour. I really missed playing Foxboro last summer, and I can't wait to reconnect with everyone in New England."

The show will star Chesney and Zac Brown Band with special guests Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker.

With 12 tour dates on sale out of 53 shows on the tour, Chesney has sold more than 400,000 tickets and is well on track to surpass another one million tickets sold in a single touring year. This would be Chesney's ninth year to reach the million mark.

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 ...
