Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Tour Clears $50 Million
Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival tour is aptly named. The show is playing the biggest venues in the country and is currently the top money-making show on the road across all genres.
Billboard reports that the tour — which marks Chesney's return to the road after taking 2014 off to concentrate on his latest album, The Big Revival — has already raked 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.
Jason Aldean joined Chesney for his June 20 concert at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc., and again the following Saturday at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field. Eric Church joined the superstar for his June 13 gig at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, which was his third stadium appearance on the tour.
Chesney is a perennial live favorite, and he puts a lot of thought into what his fans want to see.
“Every time, I want people to have the best night of their lives,” the star says. “I take that very seriously. I’ve heard enough stories about people planning their summer around coming to see us, and when you know that, you wanna always give ’em more and better, trying to think what else? But, you know, these songs are the reason people come — and I don’t ever want to take away from the music.”
So far, more than 663,000 fans have purchased tickets in 30 cities for The Big Revival tour, which is slated to wrap up in August at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., where Chesney has ended his last three tours.
Fans who miss Chesney on the road this year can catch him when he headlines at the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival, which runs from June 10-12 at Hunter Mountain in New York.
