Although 2017 was relatively quiet, 2018 will be a big year for Kenny Chesney fans. Chesney’s newly announced Trip Around the Sun Tour will be his first major tour since 2016. This announcement comes just a week before his first live album in ten years, Live in No Shoes Nation, is set to be released. It might seem like Chesney hasn’t done much since 2016, but he’s been equally busy with his philanthropic efforts.
For many years, Chesney has considered the Virgin Islands his second home. After Hurricane Irma destroyed his home as well as many others on the island, he started the Love for Love City Foundation to provide hurricane relief in the area.
As a result, the tour will certainly be a welcome break for many of those who have had friends or family members affected. The tour will stop in 18 cities over the span of 4 months.
Additionally, the tour kicks off at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. on April 21st and ends August 24th at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA.

The best part of a tour late in Chesney’s career is that while the No Shoes Nation will be able to enjoy classic hits like “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy”, “When the Sun Goes Down”, and “She’s Got it All” in addition to newer songs such as “American Kids”. Furthermore, Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion, and Brandon Lay will join Chesney on the tour.
