Kenny Chesney announces amphitheater tour in America
Kenny Chesney has delighted his American fans by announcing a special amphitheatre tour for the summer of 2020, adding to his ‘Chillaxification Tour’. Tickets for these shows go on sale in January 2020.
The nine-time CMA Award winning artist will be hitting the road at the start of May, taking with him Michael Franti & Spearhead on tour with him.
Given that Chesney is predominantly a stadium touring artist in America, the shows in amphitheaters have already whipped up a lot of excitement across the Atlantic, with the chance to see Chesney in a smaller environment proving to be very popular.
Speaking about the decision to play such venues, Chesney said that he wanted to feel the vibe of playing in those venues once more and genuinely believes that the shows themselves are very different.
“As crazy and awesome as the stadium shows are – and there’s nothing like them – there is a vibe to the amphitheater shows that only happens in those places,” Chesney said. “You look out at the lawn, you see everybody coming together, singing the songs – and it’s this community that feels so close.
“I think everyone likes when we change things up. The shows are different. We make sure we play all the same songs, but there’s a looseness in the amphitheaters – and with only two acts, there’s also a different kind of intensity. Bringing Michael Franti & Spearhead is going to keep the energy up in a big way and No Shoes Nation is going to really love them.”
