Kenny Chesney spent the last three months gearing up for what will be another of his monumental stadium tours. With all concert teams aligned and ready to go – they wrapped their final Nashville rehearsal this weekend – the news that the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour opener at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, as well as Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and all three dates at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium were sold out landed hard. 
After taking what should be great news in, the man the Los Angeles Times deemed “The People’s Superstar” called his tour promoters back – and asked if they could possibly look at the grids, figure out what could be moved and see if it was possible to open up even a few more seats. By midday Friday, April 6, and throughout the day, those seats were made available to the fans.
“Sometimes you can get more creative than you realize,” Chesney says of the unorthodox move. “For me and the band, this is going to be an incredible night. I want to know that anyone who wants to be at Raymond James Stadium with us can be, that we’ve found every possible ticket.”
Having had success going section-by-section, looking for what might have been overlooked, a couple hundred tickets were found, then a couple hundred more. And then, Chesney offers, “I figured if we could make that work in Tampa, why not Boston and Philly? We’ve had some of our greatest shows in those towns, and a lot of what makes the night really magic is the energy No Shoes Nation throws at us. It is as much those voices and that heart coming at all of us onstage as it is the songs, the guitar parts or what we’re doing. It’s how we as No Shoes Nation come together, and what we – as an entire stadium of people – make that moment mean.”
When the only country artist in Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years for the past 15 years called his promoters to ask, the response was laughter, then an “already working on it.” Because the process means close observation, once again the tickets being opened up will begin appearing online at 10 a.m. CT/11 a.m. ET; with additional tickets coming online throughout the day.
“It’s important to me that when No Shoes Nation comes together, we can all be together. If there’s that much desire the tickets are gone this early, then let’s find some tickets,” Chesney says with a laugh. “We’ve done this long enough that I know: with the people who come to my shows, truly the more, the merrier. I love the energy in the parking lots before we ever get close to the stage, and it’s the most incredible feeling, hearing them shout ‘A little messed up, but we’re all alright’ over all our guitars during ‘American Kids.’ To me, that kind of fun, sun, songs and friendship day is what summer is all about.”
Once again, presented by Blue Chair Bay® Rum, Sun Goes Down 2024 brings all the high velocity energy and songs people know by heart back to America’s favorite football stadiums.
