Rolling Stone reports that Kenny Chesney will not mount a major tour and will play only a handful of shows in 2017:
Kenny Chesney’s reps confirm to Rolling Stone Country that he will not be touring in 2017. After playing to more than 120,000 people at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the superstar wrapped his massive Spread the Love tour last month to yet another round of record numbers. He’s now on a break from the road, as he readies his Cosmic Hallelujah album, due out October 28th. And as of right now, the singer is only plotting a handful of gigs in support of the new music â€” and not a full tour.
One of those shows is also in support of a cause very important to him. Chesney is set to headline the 2017 Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida. Set for April 7th-9th, the event will include performances by dozens of country, rock and roots acts on waterfront stages. It also features Conservation Village, a place for environmental organizations to set up shop, educating people about the dire need for ocean conservation and marine research. The festival works with the Rock the Ocean Foundation to increase awareness of various issues affecting the world’s oceans and what can be done to help. Since its 2013 inception, the Tortuga Music Festival has donated $300,000 to its Conservation Village partners.
Kenny Chesney played two shows over the weekend at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts to wrap the 2016 Spread the Love Tour.
Kenny Chesney brought his Spread The Love Tour to a close with 121,399 fans in Boston this weekend. One special fan got the spotlight as the superstar brought her onstage during a series of mashups.
After performing a mash-up of the Steve Miller Bandâ€™s â€śThe Jokerâ€ť and Bob Marleyâ€™s â€śThree Little Birds,â€ť Chesney brought a young woman named Kelly Swanson onstage. As he finished the song Chesney removed her baseball hat, revealing a bald head. He then took off his own cowboy hat and rubbed his head against hers. While he hugged her he sang, â€śEvery little thingâ€™s gonna be alright.â€ť A poignant moment for the two and the audience who watched along, Chesneyâ€™s shows continue to be powerful ones.
â€śThis night in Foxborough and the past 48 hours, I just wanna say one thing: shut the door, best night of our touring life ever! Cheers everybody,â€ť the â€śSetting the World On Fireâ€ť singer said after the second show in Massachusetts.
Chesney extended his performance on his second of two shows with a cover of the Eaglesâ€™ â€śTake It Easyâ€ť with Old Dominion. Later, Miranda Lambert assisted on â€śYou and Tequilaâ€ť as well as a cover of George Straitâ€™s â€śThe Fireman.â€ť
â€śThis is why we do this,â€ť Chesney said. â€śThis right here. To play for people who love music so much, who commit so completely to whatâ€™s in these songs, who scream and shout and cheer like these fans! When you can find fans like that, you wanna do even better than you think possible â€¦ and with the No Shoes Nation, who we named right here, it really does inspire us to reach for new heights, possibilities.â€ť

Kenny Chesney is set to make his annual trek to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts this weekend to close out his summer tour.
â€śItâ€™s such a great way to end every year, you know, those two nights in Foxboroâ€¦we know we got a lot of family, a lot of friends, a lot of my island friends come thereâ€¦a lot of them are from the New England area, and we go through so many ups and downs on any tour, but we get through all that knowing that we get those two nights in Boston and in New England there in Foxboro at Gillette Stadium,â€ť Chesney said.
â€śItâ€™s two nights of just a lot, lot of energy and a lot of fun, and itâ€™s always bittersweet, because you know itâ€™s great to be able to do what we do, and as tired as you are, and sometimes as tired as you want to get away from it you still donâ€™t want to let it go either, so those nights are always bittersweet but theyâ€™re great,â€ť he explained.
