There has been a love affair between Kenny and the area around Boston since long before his first sold-out show at Foxboroughs Gillette Stadium in 2005. Having broken his own record by playing to 120,206 fans on Aug. 28 and 29 this year, he announced a single stadium show for Friday, Aug. 26 hoping that pre-sale demand would warrant adding that second date.
Pre-sale response was so strong, a second show on Saturday, Aug. 27 is being added before tickets to the general public go on sale. Tomorrow (Nov. 17) at 10 a.m. Eastern, the pre-sale will begin. Tickets for both shows will go on sale to the public on Friday, Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. Eastern.
You never want to just assume people are as into you are you are to them, Kenny says. The people of New England, and especially Boston, have been so good to us for so long and after this year, I didnt want to assume we could do those kinds of numbers a second straight year. But once we went up on sale, we realized this year could be even bigger than last year which is crazy.
Then again, we named the No Shoes Nation at Foxborough. Weve sold out 13 shows over eight years, and the heart, strength and passion of the people of Boston is what inspired me to start the Spread the Love Fund after the Boston Marathon bombing. So, I dont know why I ever hesitated. Heres to two rocking nights with some of my dearest friends in one of my favorite places in the world.
This show marks Kenny's 15th play in the home of the New England Patriots. With Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion joining him for the weekend, the Spread the Love Tour is destined to reach new heights.
