It’s the second weekend of the Goin’ Coastal Tour and last night saw Kenny Chesney performing to 13,000 fans at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa:

Chesney sounded a bit muted on his first two songs, “Live a Little” and “Reality,” but after a few minutes it was clear that it was because the crowd’s cheers were simply deafening. It’s been two years since the country star took his party on the road, and his fans were clearly starved for some fun.

Chesney matched the crowd’s energy, running around the stage, punching his fists in the air and belting out lyrics until he seemed to lose his breath. He asked the crowd how many years it had been since he last played Des Moines (two), then said, “I can already tell it’s been two too long.”

The tour continues tonight in St. Paul, Minnesota, then on to Omaha on Saturday night.
