Review of Kenny at The Stagecoach Music Festival

Kenny Chesney closed out the Stagecoach Music Festival on Sunday night in Indo, California. The Desert Sun has a review of Kenny’s set: “Chesney ends Stagecoach on an upbeat”

Kenny Chesney’s set started a bit late at about 9:40 p.m., but for the next hour and 40 minutes, he kept the crowd on their feet.

When the first lines for the video of “Key in the Conch Shell” began playing, the crowd of about 60,000 (or so) was waiting for the muscle-shirt clothed singer.

That was just a video commercial for the Sun City Carnival Tour Chesney is doing this summer.

The crowd only had to wait a few minutes before Chesney bounded onto the stage and began the 20 song set with “Live Those Songs,” a tribute to the music Chesney, and many in the audience, grew up to.

He ramped up the energy with the bouncy “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” which brought screams from the women in the audience. It was obvious, they thought the singer was sexier.

Chesney to Appear on David Letterman May 19th

Kenny Chesney will perform on the Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday, May 19th, the same day that his “Greatest Hits II” is released. He’ll sing his new hit “Out Last Night”.

“It’s a fun song.” Chesney said, “and everybody’s been there. You’re not goin’ out, you’re not stayin’ out late… one thing leads to another, and next thing you’re crawlin’ in, goin’ ‘How’d that happen?’ But you have a lot of fun in the process. I think the Letterman Show has a lot of that same spirit, so I can’t think of a better place to sing it.”

“I’ve heard it coming out of a few car radios and it makes me feel like summer,” said Chesney. “You know, some songs just make you smile when you hear it…And this one, maybe because I remember all the fun me and Brett (James) and my buddies got in that night. Nothing too major, just the stuff guys do when they’re out…But if it can make other people smile the way it does me when I hear it on the radio, then I think we’ve got something.”
