Kenny Chesney Adds 21 Amphitheater Shows to His “Trip Around the Sun Tour”

From sold-out stadiums to intimate amphitheaters, Kenny Chesney will be mixing it up on his upcoming Trip Around the Sun Tour.

After announcing the stadium tour in October, Kenny has added 21 dates to the trek—all amphitheater shows.

Kenny’s 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour will kick off in April and visit 18 major stadiums through August, including stops in Atlanta, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Nashville and more. Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay will hit the road with Kenny during the tour.

Amphitheater performances include stops in Virginia Beach, West Palm Beach, Syracuse, Toronto and more. Old Dominion will serve as support for the amphitheater shows.

“Nothing’s like the energy of a stadium show,” Kenny says. “But there’s also something about the amphitheaters, where the people are all so close. It’s like being with your friends somewhere back home, singing songs and hanging out, and having the best party of the year. For us, it feels like the people are so right there, and the songs are driving the night. It’s an experience we know No Shoes Nation loves and misses when we don’t do it, so this year, we’re going to make sure there are plenty of opportunities to see us under the pavilion or out on the lawn.”
