Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw Sell Out Stadium Show in Four Hours
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw's Brothers of the Sun Tour is selling out entire arenas with remarkable speed. Saturday morning (Dec. 10), the July 8 show at Minneapolis, Minn.'s Target Field sold out in just four hours. The show will be the first concert ever held at the new Minneapolis baseball stadium, which can hold an audience of 39,000 to 40,000, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
With stadium seats running at about $40 each and standing room by the stage running at about $300, the show had tickets available for every price point on the spectrum. Perhaps adding to its popularity, the hot-item tour will also feature appearances from Grace Potter -- who sang on Chesney's Grammy nominated 'You and Tequila' -- and Jake Owen.
When tickets for the tour first went on sale Saturday, Dec. 3, the country stars sold upwards of 275,000 tickets, which is more than any of Chesney's past on-sales, right off the bat. After the first weekend of sales, three of the tour dates had already sold out, and Chesney experienced his highest selling on-sale ever with the ticket sales for his Chicago show.
The Brothers of the Sun Tour kicks off in Tampa, Fla. June 2 and wraps August 25 in Foxboro, Mass., hitting stadiums across the country on the way, including the Cowboys Stadium, Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium, Foxboro's Gillette Stadium and Atlanta's Georgia Dome.
