“The King Of The Road” had plenty to say about the outing.  However, aside from announcing the tour would launch in Music City March 26 when he turns 47, Chesney did not reveal a complete itinerary.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate,” Chesney said.  “I’ve been ready to get out there for a long time.  Now that we’re announced I’m fired up!  This new music brings a new energy to the show, and it’s gonna take what we do to a whole other level.

Chesney will be touring in support of his latest album, The Big Revival, released in September.  Already, two singles are dominating the charts – “American Kids” and “Til It’s Gone.”

“We’re going to be mixing up the lineup, too: different markets will have different acts playing with us.  A few will be on all the stadium shows, some doing pieces – but I promise everybody who’s coming out rocks hard, and understands turning a crowd on.”

Chesney also commented on why he’s not ready to announce the entire schedule.

“Because of the number of artists we’re pulling into this tour, the roll out is a little trickier, but I think it’s going to be worth the wait and the finding out,” Chesney said.  “Rather than locking in one thing, I wanted to make each market the best it could be. People will be fired up when they see who’s playing where.  That means, there’s more news to come. … A lot of our favorite cities are on the list, so are some places we’ve never been.  Get ready!”

So far, the only dates listed for Chesney are his festival appearances – the in Jacksonville June 14 and in Columbus, Ohio, June 21.
