Doing a Kenny Chesney stadium show is enough to drive an otherwise sane person into therapy, says longtime promoter Louis Messina.

According to the TMG chief, production costs alone run as high as $1.4 million.

“That’s why I have ulcers, why I’m on nerve medication and why I see a therapist three times a week,” Messina told the Indianapolis Star. “I ask myself, ‘Am I really doing this? Am I crazy?’”

Considering the average Chesney show grosses just north of $2 million, maybe Louie isn’t too far off his rocker.
