Kenny Chesney Adds Three Soccer Stadium Dates To Tour
Kenny Chesney has already expanded his 2024 ‘When The Sun Goes Down” stadium tour by adding three soccer stadium dates to his tour, now making 20 stops at stadiums nationwide.
Kenny said in a statement about the new shows, “In a lot of ways, soccer stadiums are the best of both worlds. You have the same kind of intimacy that you get in an amphitheater, but it’s big enough you have the ability to really hit the accelerator in terms of energy, music, connecting. It’s a relatively new thing for us to have soccer stadiums, but these are markets where I know there are people who aren’t getting tickets – and everyone in No Shoes Nation knows how I feel about no citizen of our crew left behind.”
Adding three MLS soccer venues isn’t the first “Sun Goes Down 2024” changeup. Initially only planning for one Foxborough, Mass. show, Chesney added a second, selling both out. That response was so intense that he added an unprecedented third New England show on Sunday night, which is well over two-thirds sold.
Chesney said, “People have choices. You never want to take fans or the marketplace as a given, and you always want to remember who you do this for the people who love the music. I want to give people the best night of their summer because they’re giving me some of the greatest nights of my life!”
He added, “And the response to ‘Sun Goes Down’ made me decide to try some things.”
Kenny Chesney’s new soccer stadium shows are:
Saturday, June 29, at Cincinnati’s TQL Stadium
Tuesday, July 16, at Salt Lake City’s America First Field
Thursday, August 8, at Columbus, Ohio’s Historic Crew Stadium
All three shows on this configuration of “Sun Goes Down 2024” will feature Megan Moroney and old friend and multiple week No. 1 “When The Sun Goes Down” partner Uncle Kracker.
