News From The Road: Flatts, Chesney

Rascal Flatts became the first country act to perform a concert in historic Wrigley Field in Chicago this past Saturday night. The group entertained a sold-out crowd of 37,000 fans for one of only four concerts ever played in the Chicago Cubs home stadium. Vince Gill and Darius Rucker opened. The Rascal Flatts American Living Unstoppable Tour hits its second stadium of the summer in Columbus, Ohio on Aug. 9.

Kenny Chesney’s Sun City Carnival sailed into San Francisco over the weekend, selling even more tickets (over 36,000) than it did at the same stadium last year. The Corona Extra sponsored tour has already had sold out NFL stadium stops at Chicago’s Soldier Field, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. Unfortunately Sugarland had to cancel their performance that night because Jennifer Nettles is on vocal rest, but Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum rocked the crowd.
