Kenny Chesney is scaling things back with his 2019 tour. The superstar will hit the road on his Songs For The Saints arena tour. Dates haven’t been announced yet, but a few markets have been released, including Champaign, Illinois; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Kenny said, “I wanted to change it up. Last year was so intense, and amazing. No Shoes Nation took it to a whole other level, and they blew all of us away. It was the kind of energy you don’t take for granted. So when we started thinking about next year, they made me wanna come to them. Rather than the massive two-day set-up, make everyone come to a stadium away from their homes, 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.”
The tour will focus on the heartland, mid-Atlantic and South over the course of three months. He added, “Sometimes it’s about stripping things back, and creating a different kind of experience. Making Songs for the Saints really showed me the power of bringing things closer to the heart. For me, I wanted 2019 on the road to get the music to the fans, right where they live, and as always, my team figured out exactly how to help me do that.”
In 2018, Kenny played 19 stadiums and 43 shows.
