Kenny Chesney Adds Amphitheater Shows To 2020 Tour

Kenny Chesney is mixing it up on his upcoming Chillaxification Tour this summer, playing 22 previously announced stadium shows but also dialing it back a bit and adding in 18 amphitheater shows as well. On the amphitheater shows, he’ll be joined by good friend Michael Franti & Spearhead.

“As crazy and awesome as the stadium shows are—and there’s nothing like them—there is a vibe to the amphitheater shows that only happens in those places,” Chesney says. “You look out at the lawn, you see everybody coming together, singing the songs—and it’s this community that feels so close. I think everyone likes when we change things up. The shows are different. We make sure we play all the same songs, but there’s a looseness in the amphitheaters—and with only two acts, there’s also a different kind of intensity. Bringing Michael Franti & Spearhead is going to keep the energy up in a big way, and No Shoes Nation is going to really love them.”

Chesney will visit amphitheaters in West Palm Beach, Phoenix, Boise, Syracuse, Virginia Beach and more from May 7-August 26th on this portion of the tour. Fans can first purchase tickets beginning Friday, Jan. 24, 2020 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket, and other markets will announce on-sale details individually.
