Kenny Chesney Plans 2013 Stadium Tour

Zac Brown Band, Eric Church Will Play Select Dates

Kenny Chesney has mapped out his No Shoes Nation tour calendar with shows scheduled in 17 stadiums in 2013. Eric Church will be the special guest on most dates, while the Zac Brown Band will step in for three shows on the itinerary.

The Eli Young Band (“Even if It Breaks Your Heart” ) and Kacey Musgraves (“Merry Go Round” ) are scheduled to appear on all dates.

The first tour stop will be Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on March 16. Then there will be a break until the tour resumes on May 4, followed by a concert nearly every weekend through late August.

“I believe what we’ve created on the road is something special — the fans, myself, the band, the crew,” says Chesney, “But it’s really the fans who have given us a wonderful, unique life. What we’ve all built together is the No Shoes Nation. There is no better name for this tour.”

The tour will be sponsored by Corona Light.
