This is not the news that country music fans want to see. Looks like Kenny Chesney has postponed his Chillaxification Tour, again. Chesney and his team are pushing his plans back to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kenny’s Chillaxification Tour was originally set for the spring and summer of 2020, then it was postponed to the spring and summer of 2021, Chesney will now stay off the road until 2022. A press release explains that he would rather wait another year for the all clear than try to run the tour at a reduced capacity and with pandemic-related guidelines and safety regulations varying from state to state and venue to venue. Kenny and his team feel this is the best decision.
Kenny Chesney said, “we have waited for so long, I can’t play knowing I would disappoint a portion of No Shoes Nation who wouldn’t be able to get into the stadiums and the amphitheaters. There’s no way around that this year. As much I hate postponing further, I would hate telling people who waited we won’t be able to let them come due to capacity restrictions. That’s just not fair.”
Chesney’s 2022 tour will apparently stop at the same stadiums that were scheduled for his 2021 tour, but the tour’s name and supporting lineup, and the show itself, will be different. The press release also teases new music in the setlists.
