Kenny Chesney, who had been planning to bring his Chillaxification Tour to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford on Aug. 22, has postponed the tour to 2021, though the new dates are not yet available.
(June 15 Update: The new date has been announced and it’s Aug. 21, 2021, with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead opening; visit ticketmaster.com.)
“With so many tours needing to move and wanting to make sure we are in the best possible circumstances for No Shoes Nation, I think — and I hate saying this — it’s best to move everything into 2021,” said Chesney in a press release. “In the best interest of everyone — No Shoes Nation, my road family, the staff at the venues — we have decided to quit moving the dates around on the calendar, trying to make a chunk of this year work and go to where we believe we can roll out the entire Chillaxification Tour.”
According to the press release, tickets will be honored on the new date, and refunds will become available after the new date is announced.
Chesney released a new album, Here and Now, on May 1.
