After a year off to focus on music and other personal projects, Kenny Chesney is back! Chesney just announced his Around the Sun Tour that kicks off in Tampa on April 12. In true Chesney style, that just isn’t fun enough. Chesney also announced that he is going to play 2 nights at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas on March 16-17. The No Shoes Nation should expect Chesney to play a bunch of hits, do a couple covers, and there may even be a surprise!
“A year without playing makes me want to get out there, and I’ve been thinking about the tour, what we’re going to do for months. But even more than what’s on the screens, or how we’re going to do the sound and lighting this year, the idea of getting to hear the No Shoes Nation sing these songs drives me to do all of this… and so rather than waiting for Tampa, we’re going to Vegas for a little party.”
Chesney is no stranger to the Hard Rock Casino’s prized stage, “The Joint.” He took part in its inaugural performance, along side Paul McCartney and The Strokes. Chesney explains, “I thought we should do something different. Rather than the last-minute announce and scramble, go ahead and set the dates, and announce them early. We’ve had such a great relationship with The Joint, that room puts everybody right in the heart of the show – and there’s so much great rock & roll history at the Hard Rock, I thought it would be a great place to kick off the year.”
Chesney definitely thought right! Hopefully you’re lucky enough to be in Vegas to catch his show! Click here for more information.
