Kenny Chesney has announced his 2019 Songs for the Saints Tour. Rather than hitting stadiums next year, he’ll take the tour to smaller venues… amphitheaters and arenas.

“I wanted to change it up,” Chesney explains in a a press release. “Last year was so intense, and amazing … [In 2019], I wanted to go to where the fans live … strip things back a bit, and make it a little more intimate … I love reaching to the very top, the very back of a football stadium, but I also love the idea of really being able to see the back of the room.”

Here are the sopts that have been announced so far. Dates have not been released yet:

Champaign, IL State Farm Center
Grand Rapids, MI Van Andel Arena
Greensboro, NC Greensboro Coliseum
Washington, DC The Anthem
Tallahassee, FL Donald L Tucker Civic Center
Orange Beach, AL The Wharf
Columbia, MO Mizzou Arena
Wichita, KS INTRUST Bank Arena
Wilkes-Barre, PA Mohegan Sun Arena
Atlantic City, NJ Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena

Chesney to Perform at 2019 Tortuga Music Festival

Kenny Chesney will perform at the Tortuga Music Festival in 2019.

Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean will headline the three-day 2019 Tortuga Music Festival. The annual beachside event, which launched in 2013, is set for April 12 through 13th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Officially titled Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, the concert doubles as a conservation effort for the world’s oceans and marine life and hosts a special educational and interactive “conservation village.”

The draw, though, is the traditionally diverse lineup, one that strays far from any country boundaries. This year, that includes Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, eclectic songwriter Sheryl Crow, rapper Flo Rida, New Orleans brass master Trombone Shorty, and reggae icons the Wailers.

Passes go on sale October 26th. More info at tortugamusicfestival.com

Kenny Chesney just wrapped up his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour in Boston and with those two sold out shows, he notched his biggest ever tour:

Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around the Sun Tour came to a close on Aug. 25, and with its final shows reported to Billboard Boxscore, it now stands as the country superstar’s highest grossing trek ever, earning $114.3 million. The tour, which sold 1.289 million tickets, eclipses his Big Revival Tour’s gross in a photo finish, as the 2015 tour raked in $114.1 million.

Chesney wrapped the Trip Around the Sun Tour with two sold-out shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Aug. 24 and 25. He played 42 shows throughout the summer, hitting arenas and stadiums throughout North America, beginning with a two-night engagement at Las Vegas’s Hard Rock Hotel.

Chesney’s final shows at Gillette Stadium delivered the biggest gross ($11.6 million) and attendance numbers (121,714) of the entire tour. It has become tradition for the country powerhouse to close out his summer tours at the New England Patriots’ home field. With the added grosses from his 2018 shows, Chesney extends his lead as the act with the venue’s all-time highest gross at $97.6 million and highest attendance number at 1.09 million. Before his final shows began, a video played featuring Patriots CEO Robert Kraft and players Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski congratulating Chesney on the 1 million milestone.

Chesney’s newly reported 2018 figures push his total career tour earnings to $969 million, with an overall attendance of 15.3 million. The latter sum is the fifth-highest among all acts in Billboard Boxscore history, dating back to 1990.

Trip Around The Sun Tour Kicks Off in Tampa

Kenny Chesney kicked off his 2018 Trip Around The Sun Tour Saturday night in Tampa.

The Tampa Bay Times has a review of the show: “Kenny Chesney goes big all night in Trip Around the Sun Tour opener at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium”

You could drop all kinds of stats trying to size up Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around the Sun Tour, which launched its 2018 run at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium Saturday night.

There’s the end zone-swallowing stage, 180 tons thick and half a skyscraper high. There were the 55,292 fans who essentially sold the place out, and the crew in the hundreds it took to make the whole train go.

But Chesney himself might just direct your eyes to the north end of the stadium, where he had the Buccaneers’ pirate ship draped in a sail-sized skull-and-bones flag tatted with the words NO SHOES NATION.

Yep: For his first Tampa show in five years, the country superstar commandeered one of the city’s iconic structures and branded it in his own image, like everything else in his increasingly Buffett-like empire.

“Five years is too long to stay away from Tampa Bay, and for that, I apologize,” Chesney told the masses. “But, if all you people let me tonight — let me and my band and my road family — we’re gonna take you by the hand, and we’re gonna make love to you all night! And I promise we will make up for all five years we did not come here!”

It was personal for Chesney, kicking this tour off in Florida. Ever since Hurricane Irma ripped through his beloved Keys and Virgin Islands last fall, he’s been an active advocate for relief and recovery. He spent most of the week here rehearsing, and was rewarded with his largest audience ever at RayJay.

Chesney and Crew Gearing up for Tour Kickoff

Kenny Chesney and his crew have been gearing up for the kickoff of the 2018 Trip Around The Sun Tour:

It will take 19 buses and 28 trucks to make Kenny Chesney’s next tour happen.

Chesney will use the biggest video screen he’s ever used for his concerts, measuring 48 feet wide by 36 feet tall.

The configuration for his sound system was recently used at a New Orleans festival, and it had enough intensity to set off car alarms 500 feet away.

Chesney says he probably will not crank it up that high, but it’s nice to know he could.

The tour kicks off this weekend in Tampa. View the full tour schedule and get tickets!
