(Radio.com) Kenny Chesney recently announced that he will play two stadiums shows in Boston next August and his fans reacted by purchasing 106,000 tickets in just hours.

"I didn't know if it was the right thing. It feels a little like cheating, because I said I was taking the year off," Chesney said in a statement. "But once we sent the trucks and the gear home and I stopped for a little bit, I was still hearing the cheers from those two crazy nights in my ears. How often can you tap into energy that carries you for weeks; that inspires you and stays with you?"

That's when Chesney decided to keep doing what he loves best. "I called my manager and my promoter, said, 'I know it's unconventional, but I'd really like to play Boston - even if it's just once,' he said. "Now they tell me we sold over 106,000 tickets in a couple hours." Read more here.
