After breaking nine attendance records – many his own – and selling in excess of 1.3 million tickets on The Big Revival Tour, Kenny Chesney wanted to harness the energy of last year’s audiences. Naming his 2016 tour Spread the Love to reflect the No Shoes Nation’s passion for living life and loving music, he’s announcing the first wave of shows for next year – starting with the already-on-sale April 23 concert at Auburn’s Jordan Hare Stadium.
“People always want to know about the stadiums,” Chesney laughed, “because it’s a big show… a lot of music… and the kind of day people come together and celebrate friendship. We know a lot of people travel to these dates from all over, so to give them as much time as possible to get ready, I figured it’d be nice to get these out in front of our other shows! There could be a stadium date or two added, but for everyone who’s asking, let’s get next year started, right now.”
Old Dominion, who join Chesney on this tour, are becoming Nashville’s band of songwriters on the verge of their very first No. 1 with “Break Up With Him.” In addition to penning Chesney’s three-week No. 1 “Save It For A Rainy Day,” members of the good-vibe group of musicians have written chart-toppers for Blake Shelton (“Sangria”), The Band Perry (“Better Dig Two”), Tyler Farr (“Guy Walks Into A Bar”) and Dierks Bentley (“Say You Do”).
“There is nothing like the energy of a stadium show,” Chesney said. “Old Dominion kicked the whole summer off last year with the best vibe. If we’re talking about Spread the Love, those guys are all about it. If there’s anything I want to see this summer, it’s that attitude that really defines what’s going on.”
“Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham,” The Dallas Morning News deemed Chesney this summer – and the man hailed as “The King of the Road” takes his shows very seriously. “After last year, we’ve got a bar to clear, but I am fired up… and missing the fans already.”
