Country superstar Kenny Chesney is doubling down on his upcoming Here And Now 2022 Tour with the announcement of 20 amphitheater dates, in addition to the previously announced 21 stadium concerts. 

“There is something about amphitheaters that creates an immediacy that is so intimate,” Chesney shared in a statement. “The energy is very different from a stadium show, and it almost opens the songs up in completely different ways. It’s pretty cool to feel that difference between the two kinds of venues, but I can tell you: both are absolutely the greatest sensations in the world.

“Whether it’s a stadium full of people screaming ‘Noise’ at the top of their lungs, or ‘When The Sun Goes Down,’ or being quieter on ‘You & Tequila,’ or seeing all the lighters and cell phone lights out on the lawn at an amphitheater as people sing that first chorus of ‘Anything But Mine,’ you can sense how much these songs mean to people, and it’s incredible.”

It’s been several years since the East Tennessee native has toured and he’s more than ready to reunite with fans. 

“I never thought we’d be away from No Shoes Nation for three years,” he continued. “Now that we finally have the chance to spend the summer together again, I really wanted to provide as many opportunities as possible for everyone to come out and celebrate the music with us; the sense of community and the way we all feel so alive when we’re together celebrating what we love. Whether stadiums or amphitheaters, I can’t wait to see my favorite people in the world.”

Chesney, who is the only country artist in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 25 Live Artists in 25 Years and an eight-time Entertainer of the Year, invited Dan + Shay, Old Dominion and Carly Pearce to join him on the stadium dates. The amphitheater shows will feature only Pearce as direct support. 

Fans who are interested in purchasing tickets for the newly announced shows can purchase them beginning Friday, Feb. 11 at 10 a.m. local time.
