NASHVILLE, TN – January 26, 2011 — After selling out the Gillette Stadium date of his upcoming Corona Presents Kenny Chesney's 'Goin' Coastal' Tour in an incredible 8 minutes, his sixth overall sellout at the venue and a record for any artist in any genre at the Foxboro, MA stadium, Kenny Chesney is adding a second Gillette Stadium date on August 28 due to fan demand. Tickets for the new Gillette Stadium date, one of eleven stadium dates on what will be one of the biggest tours of the year, go on sale Saturday, February 5. The August 28 Gillette Stadium show will close out the massive tour.
"The last show of every year has always been special," says Chesney. "A unique shared moment and connection with the fans celebrating a summer full of music. I can't think of a better place than playing two nights at Gillette stadium to close this years tour!! I really missed playing Foxboro last summer and I can't wait to reconnect with everyone in New England!!"
The show will star Chesney, the four-time CMA and four-time ACM Entertainer of the Year, and Zac Brown Band, GRAMMY's "Best New Artist" in 2010 whose latest album 'You Get What You Give' debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with special guests Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker.
With only twelve tour dates on sale, Chesney has already sold more than 400,000 tickets, and is well on track to surpass another one million tickets sold in a single touring year. This would be Chesney's ninth year to achieve such a feat.
Chesney, who has sold over 30 million albums to date, has hit the ground running in 2011. He announced 41 additional arena and amphitheater dates to the eleven stadium dates on his Corona Presents Kenny Chesney's 'Goin' Coastal' Tour (with two of the stadium dates already sold out), announced his new ESPN documentary 'The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story,' part of ESPN's 'Year of the Quarterback' initiative which will air February 20 at 8:00 pm EST, and this week saw his new single "Somewhere With You" hold the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Songs chart for a second straight week. It's Chesney's 21st #1, and it reached the milestone with the fewest chart weeks of any song currently in the top 10.
"Somewhere With You" comes from Chesney's latest hit album 'Hemingway's Whiskey,' which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Country Album Charts, and has already produced the chart topping song "The Boys of Fall."
