Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - Kenny Chesney, the superstar musician who has sold over 8 million concert tickets in the past decade, is back from a year off the road and bigger than ever. He has just set records at Foxboro, MA's Gillette Stadium and Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field stadium for most sold out shows, the first two of ten stadium dates on his "Goin' Coastal" tour, starring Kenny Chesney
and Zac Brown Band, to go on sale.
At Gillette Stadium, Ticketmaster reports that 176,000 fans visited their Kenny Chesney page in the first on sale hour (10am-11am), snapping up tickets for his sixth sold out show at the venue in 8 minutes. In Philadelphia, it is announced that Chesney has sold out Lincoln Financial Field stadium for the fourth time. This is the most sold-out shows ever by an artist at these stadiums.
"I can't wait to get out there with Zac Brown Band at these shows" said Chesney. "Zac's fans and mine go hand in hand. They work, they play hard, they love life and they love music. We're going to give the fans a night they will never forget."
The second-biggest ticket seller of the decade, Chesney kept busy during his year off with Hemingway's Whiskey, his sixth Number One album debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and his twentieth Number One Country Single "The Boys of Fall."
During the down time, Chesney also worked on his inspirational documentary "Boys of Fall," centered around the impact high school football has on players throughout their lives. The documentary aired on ESPN and was released this month in an expanded 90 minute version, available at Wal-Mart.
Besides ten stadium dates, additional Kenny Chesney "Goin' Coastal" arena and amphitheatre dates will be announced later for Chesney's biggest tour in five years.
The ten stadium dates only on Kenny Chesney's "Goin' Coastal" tour star Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band, with special guests Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker.
