Chesney Plays Rodeo Houston

Kenny Chesney played his first show of the year on Monday night in Houston at the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show.

On Monday night, in front of 70,467 screaming fans, Chesney ripped through 15 songs during his eighth RodeoHouston performance. In between tunes, his immensely talented band members treated the crowd to a number of jam sessions, complete with guitar and drum solos.

His set list frequently transitioned from newer cuts to landmark melodies and back again, and it wasn’t until near the end of the show that the Tennessee native hit his stride.

Songs like “Young,” “How Forever Feels” and “Don’t Happen Twice” must be so ingrained in Chesney’s mind by now that he could sleepwalk through them and still drive the crowd wild. But these were the songs fans bought tickets to hear, and Chesney complied with enthusiasm during the second half of Monday’s performance.

Kenny Breaks His Own Record in Philly

Kenny Chesney performed last Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia for the 8th time and set an attendance record:

The Tennessee native sold an impressive 55,131 tickets for the concert — his eighth visit to that particular venue in the City of Brotherly Love — making it the largest single-night country show ever at Lincoln Financial Field.

“It’s funny, when you go back to markets in this size venue tour after tour, you wonder if people are ever going to get tired of the big show, the long day — and listening to the crowd last night, they were as alive, as loud, as crazy about the music as they were in 2006,” Chesney says, recalling his first visit to Philadelphia nine years ago.

“Someone said we could’ve sold 15,000 more tickets easy, which seems crazy,” he continues, “only I heard that crowd. When they cheered, when they sang along, we could hear them onstage over all [those] instruments — and that’s saying something! Because, honestly, when a crowd’s feeling it, you can’t deny it, and when they’re not, that’s pretty obvious, too.”

“The folks in Philly really brought it,” he adds. “When I heard the crowd before we got out on stage, when the pre-tape is rolling, you knew friends were made, fun was had — and the reason they’d come out was more than met. After all these years, that’s everything about why I do this.”

At his show on Saturday night in Chicago, Miranda Lambert came onstage to join Kenny Chesney for two songs.

Lambert took Grace Potter’s spot on “You and Tequila,” and also dueted on George Strait’s “Carried Away.”

From Taste of Country:

“Miranda is a fine artist and a world class singer,” Chesney said after. “To be able to sing with her on ‘You and Tequila’ was amazing, because of the grit she brings with the sweet.”
“After that, we couldn’t do just one.”

Chesney Plays on the Beach at Tortuga Music Festival

Kenny Chesney has been on the road with The Big Revival Tour for two weeks now, and he’s already played eight shows, including Saturday night’s performance at the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

SouthFlorida.com has a review of the show:

Kenny Chesney was only four songs into his performance but his shirt was already soaked with sweat, and with the Atlantic Ocean about 100 feet away he couldn’t possibly have been more in his element.

“Did I tell you we’ve missed you?” Chesney said Saturday night at the Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale.

Chesney took last year off from touring to recharge his batteries, but is back with a tour called The Big Revival. There was quite a video production moment before Chesney hit the stage, with a psychedelic bus appearing on the video screen, followed by several beach images, apparently from Jamaica.

A Rastafarian and a pirate then blurted “welcome to the show,” as did Willie Nelson, Vince Vaughn, Dick Vitale, John Gruden and others — before a video cut to Chesney on the beach, holding a Corona, of course.

Chesney, he of 26 No. 1s on the country charts, opened with “Drink It Up,” darting across the stage so fast, the four big video screens on stage showed his backside as much as his front. Next came “Reality” and “Beer in Mexico,” and with that he was on his way. The crowd was his.

Chesney Plays for 40,000 Fans on Gulf Coast

More than 40,000 fans packed the beach behind the Flora-Bama on Saturday evening to see Kenny Chesney’s only show of 2014.

The Tennessean reviewed the show:

Performing for about 2½ hours, Chesney was as sweaty as his fans within just a couple of songs, giving his all through an eclectic set packed with new songs, old favorites and more.

The leader of the “No Shoes Nation” seemed humbled by his devoted audience, repeatedly showing his love for the tens of thousands in the crowd, as well as the 300 or so boats that anchored just offshore to watch the show, turning the Gulf of Mexico into a makeshift marina.

“I’m so proud to be here,” Chesney enthused from the stage. “Thanks everybody, I love you for this.”

Chesney said the concert was his first with his band in nearly a year, but there was no sign of rust in a performance that, from the stage, Chesney said felt “incredible.”

In addition to songs including “American Kids” from his forthcoming “The Big Revival” album and longtime favorites like “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” Chesney welcomed fellow country singer-songwriter David Lee Murphy to the stage to perform a pair of his hits, “Dust on the Bottle” and “Party Crowd.”

And while closing with a signature Chesney favorite, “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” he brought a young girl to the stage and presented her with an autographed acoustic guitar, then proceeded to sign autographs for about 10 minutes while the band played an extended version of the song.

Speaking after the show, Chesney said he really felt an outpouring of love from the audience.

“I knew I wanted to play somewhere,” he said via an email forwarded by his publicist. “I just missed it, and the fans so. Having spent a couple great afternoons at the Flora-Bama, I knew it was everything I love: the ocean, great people, good times, awesome music and plenty of time to spend just enjoying the moment.

“When I hit that stage, and heard the people singing every word of ‘Flora-Bama,’ which we just released last week, back to me, I knew we’d come to the right place. Like me, everyone in the ‘No Shoes Nation’ loves the same things I do, so what better place to kick-off ‘The Big Revival’? They were loud, they were proud — and they rocked me!

“I can’t wait to get back out there next year, and I think those fans were so incredible, this will hold me over until I do.”

Chesney’s publicist, Ebie McFarland with Essential Broadcast Media LLC, said 40,000 was a “conservative estimate” on attendance based on more than 32,000 wristbands distributed plus the fans without wristbands on boats, in the water, stacked up in area condominium balconies and parking garages, and the more than 3,000 fans inside the Flora-Bama itself during the concert.

Chesney Rocks Philly This Weekend

After playing two shows on each of the past two weekends, Kenny Chesney took the Brothers of the Sun Tour to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night.

Philly.com has a review of the show:

Another year, another sold-out mid-June Kenny Chesney concert at Lincoln Financial Field — it’s pretty much been a Delaware Valley tradition since 2007. True, in 2010, the pop-country superstar from Tennessee eased off regular seasonal stadium touring, but he did send out his concert movie Summer in 3D to make the rounds, complete with footage from Chesney’s June 2009 date with Philly at the Linc.

Saturday found the 44-year-old singer back in the football stadium with familiar trappings — Chesney beginning his two-hour-plus show from midfield, launched over the crowd on a chair suspended by cables leading him to the stage from above while singing and waving, capping another multiple-act bill with some all-hands-on-deck, rock-song covering and autograph-signing — but there were differences …

The most important departure was sharing the bill this summer in a near-double-headliner format with fellow behatted big-timer Tim McGraw on their “Brothers of the Sun” tour. McGraw — taller, leaner, and surprising tanner than the famously fit and beach-oriented Chesney — preceded his tourmate’s nighttime spectacle with more than 20 songs spanning his career, including the new tunes “Mexicoma” and the already popular set-closing “Truck Yeah.”

Big Surprise Guest at Sunday’s Atlanta Show

On Sunday, Kenny Chesney played his second stadium show in as many nights as the Brothers of the Sun Tour hit Atlanta.

The crowd got a big surprise when Georgia native Zac Brown came out on stage for renditions of “Knee Deep” and “Dixieland Delight.”

From the show wrap on Kenny’s official site:

And then there was the big highlight: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Zac Brown! “The thing I love most about live music is that it’s a shared moment. You never know who’s gonna show up,” Kenny said, as he introduced Brother Zac as “someone I really respect.” The two played an acoustic “Knee Deep,” then brought the band out to cover Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight.” And if anyone was prepared to doubt this crowd’s country credentials, all they had to do was take one look at what happened during the fiddle solo: the 46,000 people in this classy, urbane Georgia Dome audience kicked into one hell of a hootenanny.

Chesney moves the tour west next weekend with shows in Dallas and Kansas City. See the full schedule here.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has a great review of the show here.
