Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots, hosted Kenny Chesney and the Poets & Pirates Tour on Saturday night for a sold out show. Chattahbox and the Boston Herald have reviews of the show:

Here’s an excerpt from Chattahbox:

Kenny CHesney took to the stage in Foxboro, MA yet again on Saturday night, playing to a sold out Gillette Stadium, and putting on one memorable show.

Throughout the night, Kenny Chesney played all of his hits, with new stuff such as “Wild Ride,” “Don’t Blink,” and others, to old classics such as “Guitars and Tiki Bars.”

The crowd began coming into the parking lot in droves early Saturday morning to begin the tailgating beforehand, getting ready for the night ahead of them.

They were not to be disappointed either, as the opening acts, which were concluded by a fantastic set done by Keith Urban, set the stage for a truly memorable performance by Mr. Chesney.

There is a reason why he has sold more concert tickets than any other act in music in the past years, and it showed Saturday night.

Kenny Chesney, caught up with everything going on, made it clear that Boston is becoming a very special place to him, making note of it throughout the show.
