Kenny Chesney and Eric Church Duet on ‘When I See This Bar’ [Watch]
Chesney performed at Lincoln Financial Field as part of his massive The Big Revival tour, with Church joining him on the bill to open the show. After Church treated the crowd to a set that included a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" that segued into his No. 1 hit, "Springsteen," he came back out onstage during Chesney's headlining set to join the superstar for a duet on his 2013 hit, "When I See This Bar." Church also joined in for an energetic rendition of Chesney's "Living in Fast Forward," to the delight of the sold-out crowd.
The show marked Chesney's eighth time headlining at Lincoln Financial Field, and he set a new attendance record for the biggest turnout to a single-night country show in the history of the venue, drawing a staggering crowd of 55,131.
“It’s funny, when you go back to markets in this size venue tour after tour,” Chesney says in a press release. “You wonder if people are ever going to get tired of the big show, the long day. And listening to the crowd last night, they were as alive, as loud, as crazy about the music as they were in 2006.”
Chesney scarcely needs to worry about fans getting sick of his shows. Billboard recently named The Big Revival tour the highest-grossing show on the road across all genres, raking in a whopping $53 million in box office receipts over the course of 33 gigs since it kicked off in May, with $15.8 million reported from just six recent performances.
