When Kenny Chesney kicked off his The Big Revival 2015 Tour with two sold-out nights at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, he knew it was just the tip of the iceberg. The man who’s the only country artist in Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years – headlining for only 12 – is the most alive when he’s taking his always high-energy shows to the largest venues.
Saturday, May 2, Chesney merges THE BIG REVIVAL TOUR with Jason Aldean’s wildly successful BURN IT DOWN TOUR for the first of a dozen co-headlining shows. The pair will open San Francisco’s brand new Levi’s Stadium – bringing high impact country to the Bay area for one definitive night of music.
“There is nothing I love more than playing stadiums,” Chesney says. “The energy and the size of the stage lets me get close to so many more people – and that is a feeling unlike any other. To be able to join up with Jason for these shows this summer, I think it’s the kind of night people won’t forget.”
The man The Wall Street Journal deemed “The King of the Road” has a special place in his heart for the City By The Bay. As he says, “San Francisco has always been an amazing place for us. I’ve had Steve Miller and Sammy Hagar join me onstage there… The fans come early, they stay late – and they always send us into multiple encores. If this is how we’re kicking off the year in stadiums, this is going to be a pretty strong bar-setter.”
This pairing extends beyond the two headliners. Joining them in San Francisco will be Jake Owen, known for his laid back, but invested take on country – including the #1 hits “Beachin’,” “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “What I Ain’t Got.” Also on the bill is Luke Bryan/Thomas Rhett/Florida Georgia Line hit songwriter/emerging artist Cole Swindell, whose hit #1 on his own “Chillin’ It” and “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight.”
