Chesney Sells $1 Million Worth of Tickets in Seattle Area

Kenny Chesney became the first country artist to sell more than $1 million worth of tickets at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash., near Seattle, when his tour stopped there Thursday night (June 17). “Though obviously trying to keep our ticket prices down, the idea of hitting that number is pretty mind-bending,” Chesney said. A second show in Raleigh, N.C., and a concert in Philadelphia recently sold out in two hours, and an upcoming Atlanta date sold out in 15 minutes.
