Kenny Chesney is known for his stadium shows, but he is also quite fond of the relative intimacy of an amphitheater show, and he’s announced several amphitheater show dates to accompany his already announced 2022 stadium dates.
Kenny said in a press release, “There is something about amphitheaters that creates an immediacy that is so intimate. The energy is very different from a stadium show, and it almost opens the songs up in completely different ways. It’s pretty cool to feel that difference between the two kinds of venues, but I can tell you: both are absolutely the greatest sensations in the world.”
He added, “Whether it’s a stadium full of people screaming ‘Noise’ at the top of their lungs, or ‘When The Sun Goes Down,’ or being quieter on ‘You & Tequila,’ or seeing all the lighters and cell phone lights out on the lawn at an amphitheater as people sing that first chorus of ‘Anything But Mine,’ you can sense how much these songs mean to people, and it’s incredible.”
Kicking off April 23 in Tampa, Fla. at Raymond James Stadium, Chesney plays 20 newly announced amphitheater dates along with 21 stadium concerts. He finishes with an already almost sold-out double-play at Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium on August 26 and 27.
