After spending the spring and summer of 2023 playing smaller venues in the markets where he launched his enviable touring career, Kenny Chesney is going back to stadiums in the summer of 2024.
The Messina Touring Group-promoted “Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour” begins April 20 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and then crisscrosses the country, hitting 18 cities including the Los Angeles area, Atlanta, Chicago and more, before the traditional tour-closer at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, where Chesney will play his astounding 22nd show — a venue record. See the full routing below.
Zac Brown Band, Megan Moroney and Uncle Kracker (Chesney’s duet partner on the hit that lent its name to the tour) will support.
“I wanted a name that suggested – obviously – when all the good stuff starts to happen. The one thing I’ve learned about No Shoes Nation and these stadium shows is they start the good times early and they just keep it going,” Chesney said in a statement. “But we all know, when the sun goes down, that’s when people really get loose and enjoy themselves.
“That was the thing about Kracker and my song. It captured a vibe and a moment so perfectly. No matter how much fun you’re having all day long, ‘everything gets hotter when the sun goes down…’ I know from years of experience that’s true. So, I can’t wait to get back out there, stadium-sized ’cause there’s nothing like 60,000 members of No Shoes Nation singing these songs. It’s gonna be awesome.”
Tickets go on sale Nov. 17.
Chesney’s “I Go Back 2023 Tour” of secondary markets featured a number of grosses in the low seven figures; as an example, a May 6 show at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, grossed $1,439,252 on 11,409 tickets. Chesney’s 2022 stadium run placed him No. 5 on Pollstar‘s year-end charts, grossing a hefty $135,259,115 on 41 shows across 38 cities, selling nearly 1.3 million tickets.
Chesney is repped by Mike Betterton at Wasserman Music. He is managed by Clint Higham at Morris Higham.
