No rest for no shoes nation. Kenny Chesney announced the first 11 stadium dates he’ll headline in 2016 on his Spread the Love Tour with Miranda Lambert, who toured with Chesney in 2009, providing direct support. Old Dominion, who will join Chesney on every date next summer, and Sam Hunt will also take the stage.
The shows, which feel more like a single day festival than a single headlining tour, will kick off April 23 at Jordan Hare Stadium before hitting AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh and Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Hunt will be replaced for dates in Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Arlington by a still-unannounced guest.
The first wave of stadium dates are listed below. The rest of Chesney’s Spread the Love Tour is yet to be revealed.
