He just announced his 2024 headlining Sun Goes Down tour, which will kick off next April at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium and run through August 23rd at Foxborough, Massachusetts’s Gillette Stadium, the now-traditional final tour stop for Chesney.
Joining him on the trek is up-and-comer Megan Moroney, along with the Zac Brown Band and Uncle Kracker.
Chesney of course named the tour for his song “When the Sun Goes Down,” which was written by Brett James and recorded by Kenny Chesney along with Uncle Kracker as a duet.
It was released in February of 2004 as the second single and title track from his 2004 album of the same name, ultimately peaking at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart where it remained for five weeks.
Chesney says that song encapsulates the entire feel and purpose of this tour:
“I wanted a name that suggested – obviously – when all the good stuff starts to happen. The one thing I’ve learned about No Shoes Nation and these stadium shows is they start the good times early and they just keep it going.
But we all know, when the sun goes down, that’s when people really get loose and enjoy themselves. That was the thing about Uncle Kracker and my song. It captured a vibe and a moment so perfectly. No matter how much fun you’re having all day long, ‘everything gets hotter when the sun goes down…’
I know from years of experience that’s true. So, I can’t wait to get back out there, stadium-sized ’cause there’s nothing like 60,000 members of No Shoes Nation singing these songs. It’s gonna be awesome.”
Tickets for each stadium shows will go on-sale next Friday, November 17th.
