Kenny Chesney Adds 2nd Gillette Stadium Date To His Chillaxification Tour

Before the tickets have officially gone on-sale, response to the Gillette Stadium finale of Kenny Chesney’s 2020 Chillaxification Tour was so strong, they’ve already decided to add a second show on Saturday, August 29. The place where No Shoes Nation was named, the greater Boston/New England area remains a passion-point for the songwriter/superstar from East Tennessee.

“It’s amazing to me how much the people there and where I’m from have in common,” Chesney says of the unlikely bond. “Passionate people who care about each other, who work hard, play hard and see music as something that brings them together. I am always amazed at the way these final tour days in Boston hit us so strong and so hard. Rather than waiting, based on the calls, texts and tweets, we figured we should just go ahead and get this second show on sale, too.”

The Wall Street Journal has called Chesney “The New England Patriots’ Other Star” and Variety has deemed the 8-time Entertainer of the Year “Country music’s only true long-term stadium act.” Given his history in Foxboro, that’s not just media hyperbole.

“This is so much bigger than all of us,” Chesney told the record-setting crowd at the final show of his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour. “It’s like destiny.”

With 21 stadium dates – and more to be announced, the only country artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years is already feeling the heat. Taking this year’s Songs for the Saints Tour to markets normally passed over by the major tours, he’s ready to get back on the biggest stages and stadium-size his brand of feel-good music.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public. AmEx sales begin at 10 a.m. local time tomorrow, October 1. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, October 4.

Blue Chair Bay Rum returns as the presenting tour sponsor, with Chesney’s award-winning line of rum offering activations throughout the summer.
