Eight-time Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney is ready to take it back to the stadiums! His Chillaxification 2020 tour
is designed to bring great music, good vibes and one of his most
diverse lineups to some of his favorite cities and a few new places.
Joining him for this summer’s adventure are six-time Academy of Country
Music/Country Music Association Duo of the Year Florida Georgia Line (“Meant to Be,” “Cruise”), three-time and reigning ACM/CMA Vocal Group of the Year Old Dominion (“Make It Sweet,” “Break Up With Him”) and summer touring sensation Michael Franti & Spearhead (“Sound of Sunshine,” “Say Hey (I Love You)”).
Chillaxification 2020 kicks off Saturday, April 18 at AT&T
Stadium in Arlington, Texas – and culminates Friday, August 28 with his
20th show at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. Tickets for all dates will go on sale next Friday, October 4 at 10 a.m. local time.
“These stadium shows are the most fun thing I do,” says the high-energy
songwriter. “It’s been a year, so when I get out there, I wanna make
sure that No Shoes Nation is being rocked, having fun and getting all
the music they can out of the day. We always try to do something
different, bring someone new – and for anyone who’s never seen Michael
Franti and Spearhead, just wait!”
The only country artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring
Acts of the Last 25 Years, Chesney’s summer stadium treks have become
legend – and gave rise to the iconic No Shoes Nation. Built on a strong
commitment to the fans, Chesney’s No Shoes Radio serves as a connector
for the man The Los Angeles Times deemed “The People’s Superstar” and The Wall Street Journal hailed “The King of the Road.”
“I love playing for No Shoes Nation any time, anywhere,” says the
soft-spoken superstar, “but these stadium shows are always something so
powerful, I can’t tell you how much anticipation goes into each one. Not
to mention, we’re always wanting to top what’s come before – and I
think this lineup might just pack the most fun of them all.”
Recently singled out by Variety as “Country’s only long-term stadium act,” Chillaxification 2020 builds
on the enduring rite of summer that Chesney’s stadium shows have
become. With the multiple week No. 1 “Get Along” from his deeply
personal Songs for the Saints, benefiting the Love for Love
City Fund, and the steamy “Tip of My Tongue” hovering just outside the
Top 10 at Country radio, there’s a lot of new music, old favorites and
surprises on tap for what will be the summer’s biggest tour.
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general
public beginning Thursday, September 26 at 10 a.m. local time through
Thursday, October 3 at 10 p.m. local time. General ticket sales begin at
10 a.m. local time on Friday, October 4.
Having defined the country music stadium experience over the last decade and a half, Chesney spent this year’s Songs for the Saints Tour taking
his music to the cities that have been overlooked on his massive
million-tickets-a-summer treks. Having played 159 stadium shows –
rocking over a million people at Gillette Stadium alone – Chillaxification 2020 promises
to be everything No Shoes Nation has come to expect from the man who
gave them “American Kids,” “Beer In Mexico,” “Out Last Night,” “Noise,”
“When the Sun Goes Down” and more.
