Ticket prices for this year’s Kenny Chesney show in Jacksonville on August 7th are lower than last year due to the economic downturn:

Tickets for Kenny Chesney’s Aug. 7 concert at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena go on sale Saturday, and they’re going to be a little cheaper than originally announced. The first word was that the tickets would be $99, $69 and $25. But now they’re priced at $79.50, $59.50 and $25.

Promoter Rich Mischell, who’s brought Chesney to town every time he’s been here, said that concerns about the economy made him decide to drop the prices. But keep in mind that Chesney sells out the arena each and every time he comes, and he plays there every year. No one else does that.

This year, he’s got Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum opening the show.

There will be some presales through the fan club and a couple of local radio stations, but Mischell said that least 70 percent of the seats will still be available when tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday through Ticketmaster and the arena box office.

There’s not a lot of the most- and least-expensive seats. Most are in the middle range.
