Kenny Chesney is the only country act in the Top 10 of Pollstar’s annual Midyear Report of tour rankings. His Corona Extra Sun City Carnival tour lands at No. 7 behind Britney Spears, Fleetwood Mac, Celine Dion, Elton John/Billy Joel, the Eagles, and Bruce Springsteen.
Rascal Flatts are at No. 17 on the list, followed by George Strait at No. 29.
Chesney and Dave Matthews had the cheapest ticket prices of any music acts in the Top 10, reflecting a commitment to fans. “We’ve really tried to keep the prices reasonable…to put on a good show,” Chesney says, “but especially to give people for those few hours a reason to just have a good time!”
Joining Chesney on the road are Sugarland, Montgomery Gentry, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum. The mix of football stadiums, arenas and amphitheaters includes several sold-out shows.
