Kenny Chesney Announces ‘Chillaxification’ Amphitheatre Shows

LifeInASong_UK

For Kenny Chesney, the Chillaxification Tour is as much a state of mind as it is over two hours of high-energy songs that have defined the lives of No Shoes Nation. With 22 stadium shows already announced, the only country artist to land in Pollstar’s “Top 20 Touring Artists of the Decade” is also going to dial things back for 18 amphitheater shows with his good friend Michael Franti & Spearhead.

Having started his headlining career at West Palm’s Coral Sky Amphitheater, the eight-time Entertainer of the Year kicks off his more intimate plays where it all began on May 7, with another summer of stadiums to be threaded throughout the more up-close shows.

“As crazy and awesome as the stadium shows are – and there’s nothing like them – there is a vibe to the amphitheater shows that only happens in those places,” Chesney says. “You look out at the lawn, you see everybody coming together, singing the songs – and it’s this community that feels so close.”

“I think everyone likes when we change things up. The shows are different. We make sure we play all the same songs, but there’s a looseness in the amphitheaters – and with only two acts, there’s also a different kind of intensity. Bringing Michael Franti & Spearhead is going to keep the energy up in a big way, and No Shoes Nation is going to really love them.”
