Country star Kenny Chesney, who had to postpone his 2020 tour to 2021 because of the pandemic, has postponed again, to the summer of 2022. New dates have not been set yet.
The tour had been scheduled to come to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford (on Aug. 21) and Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia (on June 19), among other venues.
According to a press release: “While many possibilities were weighed, with the varying local statutes and practices and social distancing, touring in 2021 would mean that a good percentage of people would not be able to come to the show. Rather than disappoint any of the fans, especially with safety precautions varying from city-to-city, he has decided to move his tour to 2022.
“ALL of the stadiums on the 2021 itinerary will still host Chesney’s 2022 tour. It will be a completely new show with a new name, new line-up, lots of new music and plenty of the songs people come to hear. The details are being finalized now, however fans can expect details very shortly.”
Tickets to the original shows will be honored, and refunds will also be available at points of purchase.
“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,” said Chesney in the press release. “That’s just not fair.”
