The just-announced 18 stadium dates will include the same lineup of special guests originally slated for 2020: Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead.
Kicking off May 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., the stadium trek will visit major cities around the country, including Nashville on May 15, through the end of August where the tour is scheduled to wrap with back-to-back nights at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
“So much goes into the stadium shows, people have no idea,” Chesney says. “Take all of that, then factor in all the other issues that come with rescheduling, making sure there aren’t conflicts with baseball or other events nearby – and maintain the kind of quality we want to bring. There were so many questions, so many unknowns, but I believe music makes a difference in people’s lives, so everyone on my team, the promoter’s team and all of the people we deal with have worked overtime trying to get this sorted out.
“With Here And Now, we have so much great music! The response to the ‘We Do’ video tells me everybody is ready to get back out there to do what we all do best: rock hard, sing loud, enjoy the moment, love our friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.”
Original tickets are valid for the rescheduled dates. Fans unable to attend have 30 days from today to request a refund at the point of purchase. Shows previously planned in Houston and San Antonio are unable to be rescheduled for 2021, so those fans will receive refunds as well.
