In an interview with Cathalena E. Burch of AZNightBuzz, Kenny Chesney talks about his upcoming show on Saturday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona:

In a phone interview from his tour bus last Friday, the country superstar said his stadium show is off-the-charts high-energy. He plans to squeeze in two, maybe three ballads, he said. He recently added his Top 10 single “Better As A Memory” to the playlist, and “I may do ‘Blue Chair,’ I’m not sure. For the most part, it’s a high-energy show,” he said.

“I’ve gotten more used to” playing stadiums, he said. “The first year we did it about three or four years ago there was a learning curve just in connecting with everybody. I think me and the guys have that down now. We spent so much time playing arenas and outdoor amphitheaters, we were pretty comfortable with ourselves up there on stage. Then all of a sudden we had another 20,000 to 30,000 people to sing to. It was a little different. Plus, there was a lot more ground to cover for me, and that’s tough ’cause I can’t sit still and listen to music at the same time. But they are great right now. The crowds are amazing. It’s a lot of fun to watch.”

Saturday’s show will run from 3-11pm, with performances by Keith Urban, Sammy Hagar, Gary Allan, and LeAnn Rimes. Get tickets to the show here.
