Kenny Chesney is making his long-awaited return to Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on Saturday evening when his Here And Now Tour 2022 rolls through Music City. The show marks Chesney’s first gig in Nashville since 2018 and he’s more than ready for his return to the home of the Tennessee Titans. 

“Playing Nashville is one of those places where it’s really easy to [open our hearts] because the relationship has been built for years,” Chesney told The Tennesseean ahead of Saturday’s show. “The love is already there.”

The East Tennessee native, who says his last time in Nashville was “one of the most magical nights” of his life, began preparing for the Here And Now Tour in February. With its official kick-off in Tampa, FL on April 23, the tour is now a well-oiled machine, making its way from city to city with top-notch production. 

The stadium shows boast a massive, 220-foot wide stage that ascends almost three stories into the air when being built and feature 126 LED Robe Forte light fixtures and 60 JDC1 strips on the floor for footlights It’s one of the biggest tours in the business, however, audiences shouldn’t expect to see fireworks or cryo on the Here And Now Tou. Instead, they should come prepared for an energy-filled show packed full of hits.

“For the most part, what people are used to, especially with me — we’re not a big believer in smoke and mirrors,” the eight-time Entertainer of the Year told the publication. “All they’re going to see and feel is raw energy and that’s it. That is our pyro.” 

With a 26-song setlist that spans his celebrated career in country music, Chesney is ready to bring his A-game. 

Parking lots at Nissan Stadium open at 2 pm, gates open at 4 pm, and music begins at 5 pm.

Joining Chesney in Nashville are Carly Pearce (5 pm), Old Dominion (5:45 pm), Dan + Shay (7:05 pm). Kenny Chesney will take the stage at 8:50 pm.

A limited number of tickets are available for purchase HERE.
