Chillaxing with Kenny Chesney: "It's impossible to do a summer tour without playing in Jersey"

October 4, 2019

Kenny Chesney's 'Chillaxification World Tour' is getting set to hit the road in 2020 with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead, and tickets for his show at NYC's MetLife Stadium on August 22nd are now on sale!

Kenny's been off the road since May giving him time to relax, sorry CHILLAX, by the water but he's definitely ready to get back in front of his fans.

As a life long sports fan, Kenny Chesney still can't believe he gets to play at the same stadium as the New York Jets and New York Giants.

"It's impossible to do a summer tour without playing in Jersey. It's just become such a tradition in our lives now," Kenny tells NY's Country 94.7's Katie Neal.

Kenny talked at length about the passion that fans from New York and New Jersey have at shows: "I remember as a kid, my father and I, you know, we have sports in our lives, seeing the Giants and the Jets play in New York. When I look into the audience, and I see all those people every year at MetLife, just to see how much they care...

 "That's what defines a lot of people that grow up in that area. They care about sports, they care about life, they love hard, they play hard -- and music means a lot to them."
