Kenny Chesney knows how to throw the summer into high gear. Having spent last spring and early summer with his taking-it-to-the-roots I Go Back 2023 Tour of those arenas and markets where he rose to major headlining status, the only country artist to be on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Artists of the Last 25 Years for the past 14 years is bringing old friends and new to 18 full-scale stadiums, including Gillette Stadium on August 23, 24, and 25 with a few more major surprises to come.
Joining Chesney is the multiple GRAMMY-winning Zac Brown Band, enjoying their 12th CMA Group of the Year nomination; 2023 CMA Song of the Year and New Artist nominee Megan Moroney; and multiple-week No. 1 “When The Sun Goes Down” duet partner Uncle Kracker, known for his own hits “Follow Me” and “Drift Away.”
“I wanted a name that suggested – obviously – when all the good stuff starts to happen. The one thing I’ve learned about No Shoes Nation and these stadium shows is they start the good times early and they just keep it going,” Chesney says of his 2024 tour name. “But we all know, when the sun goes down, that’s when people really get loose and enjoy themselves.
“That was the thing about Kracker and my song. It captured a vibe and a moment so perfectly. No matter how much fun you’re having all day long, ‘everything gets hotter when the sun goes down…’ I know from years of experience that’s true.
“So, I can’t wait to get back out there, stadium-sized ’cause there’s nothing like 60,000 members of No Shoes Nation singing these songs. It’s gonna be awesome.”
Kicking off April 20, 2024 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, the tour will run through August 23 at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium for what has become a tradition: closing out the tour in a venue Chesney has played to well over a million people. Chesney’s return to Gillette Stadium on August 23 will also mark his venue-record 22nd overall performance at the home of the New England Patriots and Revolution. Tickets for these major stadium shows will go on-sale next Friday, Nov. 17.
“Zac Brown Band understands high-energy country, the same way Alabama did, and they’ve got our friend Caroline Jones in their line-up now, too,” Chesney says of the group joining as direct support. “Megan Moroney isn’t just one of the smart new voices in country, she’s really bringing a sense of heart and joy to the music – and I’m fired up to be bringing her out to No Shoes Nation.
“And Uncle Kracker has been part of so many fun times, crazy moments and memories made, it always kicks things up a notch when he’s out there with us. So, it really is old friends, new friends and a whole lotta love.”
Again presented by Blue Chair Bay® Rum, the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour brings all the high velocity energy and songs people know by heart back to America’s favorite stadiums.
Kicking off April 23 in Tampa, Fla. at Raymond James Stadium, Chesney will play 21 stadium concerts, finishing Here And Now 2022 with what has almost become a No Shoes Nation tradition: a double-play at New England’s Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on August 26 and 27. All current ticketholders remain in their original seats at each stadium.
To celebrate the news of the Here And Now 2022 lineup, the 19 stadium shows already announced are getting “Five Day Party Pricing,” to honor those fans who normally attend multiple shows each summer with limited discounted tickets at multiple price points igniting the Here And Now 2022 summer. To make it super-easy, no codes, no clubs, no special sign-ups and prices will already reflect any discounts. Just look for the price that fits your party now through Nov. 5.
“Let’s make this simple!” Chesney says. “It’s been a long time. No Shoes Nation moves around, shows up in lots of cities. So, to say thank you for being the most awesome people in the world, I thought this was a way to recognize the people who do more than one or two stadiums each summer!”
In addition to the previously announced stadium shows, Chesney has also added dates at Charlotte, N.C.’s Bank of America Stadium and Columbus, Ohio’s Historic Crew Stadium. Tickets to the newly announced Charlotte show go on sale to the general public on Friday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. local time, with on sale details for Columbus TBA.
American Express® Card Members can purchase Charlotte tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. local time through Thursday, Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. local time.
Here And Now 2022 presented by Blue Chair Bay Rum and fueled by MARATHON picks up where one of contemporary music’s greatest love affairs left off. Having sold over a million tickets every year since 2002, Chesney is ready to get back out there – and he’s bringing a few of his very best musical friends with him.
