Kenny Chesney Getting Ready For Sun Goes Down Tour


Kenny Chesney Getting Ready For Sun Goes Down Tour

(EBM) The tape is on the floor... Marley, the swordfish, is out of his road case... The walls of the hard concrete space are covered with massive screens... and country music's most high-velocity band has reported for duty. Kenny Chesney, who has spent the last several weeks moving from cutting video to sorting through light cues, working up songs with his band and setting up BORN, his first new project in four years, is starting to bring it all together in anticipation of the first show of his Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium.

"This is where it all starts to really feel real," Chesney says with a laugh. "We've got the stage and the T taped off. We have room to really play off each other and jam while we're dialing the songs back in. But even more, all the teams are together, and we're catching up after so many months off! When you've got a road family like I do, it's a rush just being together."

With new footage for some of the old favorites, a few surprise additions to the set list and a few new songs, Sun Goes Down 2024 is taking on the momentum of a full-tilt summer supernova.

Having spent last spring and early summer with his taking-it-to-the-roots I Go Back 2023 Tour of those arenas and markets where he rose to major headlining status, the only country artist to be on Billboard's Top 10 Touring Artists of the Last 25 Years for the past 15 years is fired up to get back to parking lot parties, stadium-sized guitar parts and a force field of energy like no other.

Running through Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. for the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour's unprecedented three nights - August 23, 24, 25 - in what has become a No Shoes Nation tour-ending tradition, the songwriter/superstar from East Tennessee is ramping up the music for another summer that says everything about being alive and grateful in the moment.

"I never take my band for granted," explains the eight-time Entertainer of the Year. "When we get into rehearsals and the massive amounts of sound start bouncing off the walls, it just makes you stop and take it in. After all these years, there's nothing like hearing Kenny or John or Danny taking a solo, and nobody plays drums like Nick Buda. Harmoni and Wyatt, the way they fill in harmonies? It's a sound unlike any other, and I get to listen to them for the rest of the summer!"

Once again presented by Blue Chair Bay® Rum, the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour brings all the high-velocity energy and songs people know by heart back to America's favorite football stadiums.
