Chesney Explains His Reason for Moving the Tour to 2022 and His Hopes for the Tour
“When we hit pause on our 2020 tour, I never thought we would go much past the fall, let alone into 2021,” says Kenny Chesney, who is one of the most popular touring acts in country music. “The idea that it would be three years before I would stand in the end zone of Gillette Stadium, where No Shoes Nation was born, wasn’t something any of us could conceive.”
For the 8-time Entertainer of the Year winner, Kenny Chesney couldn’t believe it would take him this long for him to get to hit the road again. “But in the middle of all of this, I know it’s true… and I know how much I miss being out there,” he continues.
“Being in the thick of the most passionate place in the world: No Shoes Nation. Anywhere they plant their flags, bring their passion, their friends and their will to rock, it reminds me that to be in the moment is everything No Shoes Nation is about!”
Kenny Chesney admitted that one of the reasons he didn’t want to rush into touring was because of the ever-evolving COVID safety protocols, and his decision to wait until fans can gather safely again.
“With every city, county and state having their own protocols, with capacity numbers shifting every day, I didn’t want to announce until we knew we could come full on… strong… and without a care in the world.”
“I always want to be [in] that place where you can let go, feel safe and have the time of the summer,” he says, before explaining the amount of work that eventually went into planning the tour so that it can happen. “After a lot of work on a lot of people’s parts, a lot of cooperation from the folks at the stadiums, the places we’re coming and the teams we share those venues with, we’re ready to announce the Here And Now 2022 Stadium Tour. Like it does for everyone, the idea of music, live music, fills me up.”
“Nothing is so in the moment, so completely alive,” Kenny Chesney notes. “I want to start 2022 with the awesome rush that embodies everything playing for No Shoes Nation is. We’re calling the tour Here And Now 2022, because when we get together, there is only the present – and it’s so electric and good, I know I don’t want it to end. I just want to be 100% there with all of you.”
