No Shoes Nation does it again.
Kenny Chesney made his only two stadium appearances of 2017 this weekend with back-to-back concerts at Boston’s Gillette Stadium—and made history in the process!
The country star played to a record 121,624 people over the two nights at Gillette, marking another summer-ending tradition for Kenny.
“I had waited all summer to get to these shows,” Kenny says. “It takes a lot of focus to make records, but it’s the No Shoes Nation that feeds me... There are no words for it... beyond, just, ‘Wow.’”
Kenny took 2017 off from a full touring schedule, opting to focus on music instead.
“Obviously, we’re not in stadium mode, so we made the decision to really lean into the music, really put the focus there,” he says. “We’d not gotten to play these songs – and these two shows were our tour end without the tour!”
The shows, the 16th and 17th appearances in Boston for Kenny, bring No Shoes Nation’s ticket total to 968,612 since 2005.
