Kenny Chesney, Eric Church Confirm Stadium Dates

They'll Team Up for Five Shows Starting in May

Kenny Chesney has added Eric Church to five stadium concerts in 2015. Church will make his first appearance on the Big Revival tour on May 9 in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium.

In addition, stadium dates featuring Church include: May 30 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh; June 13 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta; July 11 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia and Aug. 22 at Ford Field in Detroit.

“There is something about the way Eric connects with my audience that left me feeling like he made the No Shoes Nation tour something special. He attacks the stage with so much force — and his songs really speak to the people who’re fighting the fight to get by — and I love that about what he does onstage,” Chesney said.

“Some of the most fun I’ve ever had on tour was last summer with Kenny,” Church said. “He’s an artist that isn’t afraid to let you come full blast and do what you do. It’s rare you get to tour with someone you respect and you are friends with. I can’t wait to do it again.”

Chesney will also appear with Jason Aldean at 10 stadium shows this summer, for a merger of the Big Revival tour and Aldean’s Burn It Down tour. Chesney took 2014 off from touring to record his newest album, The Big Revival, which was released in September.
