Kenny Chesney Reveals His Only 2017 Stadium Concert
Kenny Chesney will only be playing one stadium show in 2017 -- and it'll be at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Chesney announced his concert at Gillette Stadium -- which is set to take place on Aug. 25, 2017 -- on Monday morning (Nov. 21), in a Facebook video. Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion will join Chesney for the concert.
"Even though I’m not going to go out with a full tour next year, I can’t imagine summer without getting out there and rocking everyone at Gillette Stadium," Chesney writes. "From the beginning, the amount of heart and soul that came at us from the first note at Gillette was beyond intense. It’s never let up, it’s never slowed down. Every summer, every show, every song, they push us even harder than we push them.
"It’s kind of addicting, and something I can’t imagine a summer without," he adds. "So we’re coming, Boston -- and you know, this is our one shot at a big, big show, so you better get ready."
Details on tickets for Chesney's Gillette Stadium concert are available on KennyChesney.com. The country superstar, who is known for his massive summer stadium tours, recently revealed that he will be scaling down his live dates in 2017.
“We’re going to pull back just a little bit [from the road] … [W]ith the new music, I want the fans to digest it and let it seep into their lives a little bit,” Chesney says. “So, next year, we’ll do five or six shows — we don’t know how many yet — but other than that, we’ll let this new music find its way. Then, the next year, we’ll crank it up again.”
Chesney’s 2017 tour calendar currently has only five dates on it. In addition to his Foxborough stop, he’ll headline the 2017 Tortuga Music Festival in April and headline Country Jam 2017, which is also set for June.
