First hand reports indicate that Kenny Chesney’s final show from his Sun City Carnival tour was an emotional moment for the Luttrell, TN troubadour. Guests who took part in front of 45,000 screaming Indianapolis fans included Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band and others.
“It’s hard to believe we’re putting this thing up on blocks,” an emotional Chesney said after the sold-out show at Lucas Oil Stadium. “The response from the fans, out in the crowd and the internet, it makes you feel like people understand… and that they know we’re not gone for good, it’s just a breather…And I hope people understand, I’ve never been an all or nothing kind of guy. This doesn’t mean there will be no shows or no music. It means I’m not going to be staging a major tour – I’m not going to take two weeks off and be meeting with people to build a stage, to start thinking about how we can do the lights different and what the video’s gonna be. This isn’t just a show, it’s a major production… and it’s not just ‘lets decide what to play, rehearse for a couple weeks and get out there’. I need a break from that, so I can get back inside from a fresh place. I’m really looking forward to that, because I don’t know anyone who keeps their foot on the gas like this for 8 years. There are all kinds of things to explore within the music, I can’t wait to take the time to see where some of this will take me, and where I might turn up, because, you know, I now have the time to maybe get into some interesting places… We’ll just have to figure it out.”
