Kenny Chesney Spreads The Love

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Country superstar returns to Mohegan Sun Arena for back-to-back nights in May

UNCASVILLE, CT (February 9, 2016) – After breaking nine attendance records – many his own – and selling in excess of 1.3 million tickets on The Big Revival Tour, Kenny Chesney wanted to harness the energy of last year’s audiences. This 2016 tour is named Spread the Love to reflect the No Shoes Nation’s passion for living life and loving music and Mohegan Sun Arena is primed to host back-to-back shows, beginning with a Friday, May 13th concert beginning at 7:30pm. Chesney will take the stage again the following evening, on Saturday, May 14th. Special guests for both shows will be ACM “Vocal Group of the Year” nominees, Old Dominion.

Tickets are $125.00 & $95.00 and go on sale Friday, February 12th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, February 13th, subject to availability.
Old Dominion are becoming Nashville’s band of songwriters on the verge of their very first #1 with “Break Up With Him.” In addition to penning Chesney’s three-week #1 “Save It For A Rainy Day,” members of the good-vibe group of musicians have written chart-toppers for Blake Shelton (“Sangria”), The Band Perry (“Better Dig Two”), Tyler Farr (“Guy Walks Into A Bar”) and Dierks Bentley (“Say You Do”).

“There is nothing like the energy of a stadium show,” Chesney said. “Old Dominion kicked the whole summer off last year with the best vibe. If we’re talking about Spread the Love, those guys are all about it. If there’s anything I want to see this summer, it’s that attitude that really defines what’s going on.”

“Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham,” The Dallas Morning News deemed Chesney this summer – and the man hailed as “The King of the Road” takes his shows very seriously. “After last year, we’ve got a bar to clear, but I am fired up… and missing the fans already. There are a bunch more dates coming, but let’s get the first wave of major stadium shows on the calendar right now!”

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Also in 2013, Mohegan Sun won “Casino of The Year” in 2 categories at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size. In 2015, Mohegan Sun took home the IEBA award for “Casino of the Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events, visit Mohegan Sun.

Kenny Chesney Announces His Big Revival

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Kenny Chesney Takes The Big Revival on the road and plays Mohegan Sun Arena for back-to-back shows beginning Friday, April 24th

UNCASVILLE, CT (December 3, 2014) — With a year making The Big Revival, his 13th #1 Country Album debut, 8x “Entertainer of the Year” winner Kenny Chesney is ready to get back to the fans! Having already spawned the multiple week #1 “American Kids” and “Til Its Gone” hitting Billboard’s Country Singles chart at #25 the week before, his new music has clearly reinvigorated the No Shoes Nation. Mohegan Sun Arena welcomes the huge tour for a 2-night stay on Friday, April 24th and Saturday, April 25th with special guest Chase Rice. Both shows will start at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $125.00 and $95.00 and go on sale Friday, December 12th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, December 13th, subject to availability.

Now, as revealed exclusively this morning to ABC’s Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, Chesney returns to the place he draws inspiration, energy and a reason to believe in the power of music: his 2015 tour! Again, the man The Wall Street Journal deemed “The King of the Road” mixes it up playing arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums. He kicks off The Big Revival Tour, presented by Corona Light, in Nashville on his birthday, March 26, 2015.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate,” Chesney, who confirmed he’s bringing The Big Revival Tour to America today on ABC’s Good Morning America, says. “I have been ready to get back out there for a long time. Now that we’re announced I’m fired up! This new music brings a new energy to the show, and I think it’s gonna take what we do to a whole other level.”

Impressive considering each of his headlining tours since 2002 has sold over a million tickets– making him the only Country act in Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Past 25 Years. That’s a strong showing, given Chesney’s only been headlining half that time.

“But this is really about us and the fans… the fact that every year, so many people make their summer about coming to see us. I’ve missed that sense of community and that passion for the music. There’s gonna be some stuff from the new record and songs people haven’t heard in a while. There’s gonna be a whole lot of music and some surprises…

“I didn’t know if I could take the music as far as we were able to with the album. That’s the beauty of giving things enough time to be what they’re supposed to. We’re already working on next year’s video. I’ve seen the stage – and the lights! As the set list comes together, and we start locking down in rehearsals, this is gonna be a whole night. I hope the fans are ready.”

Rolling Stone echoes that, saying The Big Revival “continuously brings a sense of musical energy and emotional urgency…” and Billboard raved it “captures the zeitgeist of American youth in a way that John Mellencamp once owned.” Look for this year’s tour to offer the same kind of energy, intensity and excitement.

“Because of the number of artists we’re pulling into this year’s tour, the roll-out is a little trickier, but I think it’s going to be worth the wait, the pieces and the finding out. Rather than locking into one thing, I wanted to try to make each market the best it could be. I think people will be fired up once they see who’s playing where. And that means, there’s more news to come… A lot of our favorite cities are on the list, and so are some places we’ve never been. Get ready!”

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas.
