Country music entertainer Kenny Chesney has added several new amphitheater shows to his upcoming 'Trip Around the Sun Tour'! View the dates here!

Country music superstar Kenny Chesney has added twenty-one intimate amphitheater shows to his upcoming tour!

“Nothing’s like the energy of a stadium show,” Chesney shares in a new statement. “But there’s also something about the amphitheaters, where the people are all so close. It’s like being with your friends somewhere back home, singing songs and hanging out, and having the best party of the year. For us, it feels like the people are so right there, and the songs are driving the night. It’s an experience we know No Shoes Nation loves and misses when we don’t do it, so this year, we’re going to make sure there are plenty of opportunities to see us under the pavilion or out on the lawn.”

The Tennessee native’s Trip Around the Sun Tour kicks off April 21st at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, with his amphitheater shows set to begin May 10th at Virginia Beach’s Farm Bureau Live. The tour will thread between massive stadium shows and the more streamlined concerts throughout the summer— and see Chesney create two very different kinds of concert experiences.

“Part of the fun of mixing the venues is riding the energy, letting the music breathe in different ways and really giving the audience dynamics that are so intense without being the same show across America,” Chesney explains. “The amphitheaters all have their own vibes, their own attitude – and those experiences shift very specifically. Darling’s Waterfront in Bangor, Maine is one thing; Mountain View, California’s Shoreline Amphitheater is something else altogether, just like the folks in Toronto at the Molson or Austin’s Austin360 Amphitheaters.”

With Chesney returning to a full touring calendar, he is energized by the response to Cosmic Hallelujah, The Big Revival, and the hits “American Kids,” “Noise,” “Save It for a Rainy Day” and “All the Pretty Girls.”

“I feel like this summer, we’re going to take those songs on Live in No Shoes Nation, and lift them even higher,” Chesney says. “Listening to it over and over, hearing everyone’s voices raised… It’s what makes coming out to see us special! When you get to hear all that heart, all that fun, and life, and love coming towards the stage, it really takes our breath away. So, get ready America: we’re coming! Stadiums, amphitheaters, and a whole lot of music.”

Keeping the focus on songwriting and crowd-pleasing, Chesney has selected country music group Old Dominion as special musical guests for his amphitheater evenings.
