Kenny's been playing Philadelphias Lincoln Financial Field almost as long as hes been headlining summer stadium tours and the thrill is anything but gone. On his 8th appearance at the home of the Philadelphia Eagles, he broke his own record for a single night country music show, selling 55,131 tickets to his 2015 Big Revival Tour.
Its funny, says Kenny when you go back to markets in this size venue tour after tour, you wonder if people are ever going to get tired of the big show, the long day and listening to the crowd last night, they were as alive, as loud, as crazy about the music as they were in 2006 [the first time he played there]."
Clocking in at just under two hours, Kenny played all three of the #1s from The Big Revival, as well as songs from across his career. Midway through the set, good friend Eric Church, who also appeared on the bill, joined Kenny for an acoustic-driven When I See This Bar, as well as a turbo-charged Livin In Fast Forward.
The folks in Philly really brought it. When I heard the crowd before we got out onstage, when the pre-tape is rolling, you knew friends were made, fun was had and the reason theyd come out was more than met. After all these years, thats everything about why I do this.
