It’s official! Kenny Chesney will be performing TWO back to back concerts at Gillette Stadium for summer of 2017. Last week, Kenny announced that he would be returning to New England on August 25, 2017 for his only stadium show of the year. While Chesney is only playing a handful of shows in the coming year, one show is never enough for the country superstar at Gillette Stadium and he subsequently added a second night for August 26, 2017. Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion will join Chesney both nights in Foxborough.
“I can’t believe we’re doing two shows,” says Kenny. “I said I was going to take some time and lay low, but obviously a summer without Boston just isn’t the same. And when they came back asking about another show due to the response and said, ‘You’re already going to have the stage and everything in place…,’ what else could I say? So, this will be my only stadium play; but it will be two nights instead of one. And truly, Boston, I can’t wait… I can still hear the roar of our last show in my ears.”
If you’ve seen one of Chesney’s stadium shows, you know its one not to miss ~ especially at Gillette Stadium. There’s something special in the air each time he performs there. “Before I was doing a lot of stadiums every year, the people not only came out to Gillette Stadium,” Chesney recalls, “but they cheered, sang and screamed their lungs out. They knew all the songs and made us feel like we were truly a part of the summer. That kind of magic stays with you. I’m really glad we’re going to be able to bring everyone together in Foxborough next summer!”
These dates will serve as Kenny Chesney’s only stadium shows on his tour calendar for 2017. Sorry folks if you were hoping he would start adding more stadium shows throughout the summer.
