Kenny Chesney Announces ‘Spread The Love’ Tour

Kenny Chesney reveals the first leg of dates for his 2016 stadium outing featuring Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion. Today’s announcement says the “Spread the Love” tour is named after “No Shoes Nation’s passion for living life and loving music.”

The country star unveiled the first stop of the tour last month – an April 23 show in Auburn, Ala., that’s being billed as the debut Music and Miracles Superfest. Presented by the founders of the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation, the event is raising money to fight cancer and feed the hungry.

Now, we’ve got 11 more dates on the books, including Phoenix, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Seattle and Detroit.

“People always want to know about the stadiums, because it’s a big show… a lot of music… and the kind of day people come together and celebrate friendship,” Chesney said. “We know a lot of people travel to these dates from all over, so to give them as much time as possible to get ready, I figured it’d be nice to get these out in front of our other shows! There could be a stadium date or two added, but for everyone who’s asking, let’s get next year started, right now.”

April 23 – Auburn, Ala., Jordan-Hare Stadium (Music And Miracles Superfest)
