Chesney, Aldean team up for stadium shows

Monday, October 27, 2014 – Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney announced that their tours, The Burn It Down Tour and The Big Revival Tour will mash up for 10 stadium shows next summer.

The first shows to go on sale at New England's Gillette Stadium on Aug. 28, 2015 and San Francisco's Levi's Stadium on May 2, 2015. More on-sale information and special guests will be announced soon.

"We've played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock," Chesney said. "There aren't a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I'm glad we're able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!"

"Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workinghard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums," said Aldean. "When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he's the guy I would call or text for advice. We have a real friendship. Don't get me wrong...that doesn't mean I'm going to make it easy to follow me every night...he's gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before."

Here and Now 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. »»»
Songs for the Saints 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 »»»
Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts CD review - Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts
Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" accurately recreates an experience of seeing the diminutive party animal live. Chesney has found an extremely lucrative niche as country music's Jimmy Buffett (although much of Buffett's island-y pop music appeals to many of today's non-discerning country music listeners). Also, with songs like "Pirate Flag," Chesney has even borrowed a few of Buffett's sea-related lyrical themes. This live CD could have been »»»
