Kenny Chesney has scrapped his Chillaxification Tour. Initially set for 2020 and then delayed until 2021, the stadium trek is presently scheduled for 2022 under new name and with various opening acts, as indicated by an press release. “All of the stadiums on the 2021 itinerary will still host Chesney’s 2022 tour. It will be a completely new show with a new name, new line-up, lots of new music and plenty of the songs people come to hear,” it read. Further subtleties, including show dates, are normal soon.
Chesney tended to his fans — the No Shoes Nation — straightforwardly in a lengthy letter. “We have waited, and we have hoped…Talked to medical experts, stadium people, local officials across the country,” he said. “With all the progress being made around the pandemic, there is still too much unknown. What we’re hearing changes daily.
“I won’t take chances with people I love,” he continued. “So, here comes reality. We’re moving to 2022…Where I feel better about us all being together safely. I’d rather keep everyone safe + know we can rock for years to come.”
Chesney is scheduled to kick off the tour in Tampa and visit 18 urban communities altogether, wrapping up at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, around 70 miles from Gloucester, where Chesney recorded his new music video. The Here and Now singer released the cinematic clip for “Knowing You” a month ago.
