Chesney’s Tour Tops Billboard List

Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems tour grossed more money — $24 million — than any other country tour in 2002, according to the Dec. 28 issue of Billboard. “When we started this tour, all I wanted was to have enough people show up so we could go back and play all these places that my heroes had played when I was growing up. I’d never headlined before, so I just wanted to not embarrass myself, do enough business that we could keep growing it,” Chesney said. “Obviously we did a little better than I’d hoped.” 12/23/02
