Kenny Chesney will have waited long enough to perform live for his No Shoes Nation by the time his long awaited “Here and Now 2022 Tour” launches at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., April 23. Now he’s adding 20 amphitheater shows to his already-announced 21-date stadium trek.

He’ll still conclude the summer-long “Here And Now 2022 Tour” with what has become a No Shoes Nation tradition, finishing with an already sold-out double-play at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium on August 26 and 27.


Tickets to the newly announced amphitheater dates go on sale Friday, Feb. 11 at 10 a.m. local time via Kenny Chesney’s website.

And it’s been a wait for Chesney and his fans, since what was originally dubbed the “Chillaxification Tour” was to hit the road in 2020, postponed to 2021, and finally resurrected in 2022 under the “Here And Now” moniker.

“I never thought we’d be away from No Shoes Nation for three years,” Chesney says. “Now that we finally have the chance to spend the summer together again, I really wanted to provide as many opportunities as possible for everyone to come out and celebrate the music with us; the sense of community and the way we all feel so alive when we’re together celebrating what we love. Whether stadiums or amphitheaters, I can’t wait to see my favorite people in the world.”


The eight-time Entertainer of the Year is known for his stadium shows, performing to more than a million fans each summer of touring. But Chesney shares that he’s a fan of amphitheater shows as well.

“There is something about amphitheaters that creates an immediacy that is so intimate,” Chesney says. “The energy is very different from a stadium show, and it almost opens the songs up in completely different ways. It’s pretty cool to feel that difference between the two kinds of venues, but I can tell you: both are absolutely the greatest sensations in the world.

“Whether it’s a stadium full of people screaming ‘Noise’ at the top of their lungs, or ‘When The Sun Goes Down,’ or being quieter on ‘You & Tequila,’ or seeing all the lighters and cell phone lights out on the lawn at an amphitheater as people sing that first chorus of ‘Anything But Mine,’ you can sense how much these songs mean to people, and it’s incredible.”
