Kenny Chesney, who postponed his 2020 concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford to 2021 because of the pandemic and then had to postpone again to 2022, has announced details of the show. He’ll perform on Aug. 13, with Dan + Shay, Old Dominion and Carly Pearce opening.

“When we realized we weren’t getting to spend 2020 with No Shoes Nation, I never thought it would be three years until I would see my most favorite people in the world,” Chesney said in a press release. “My favorite place in the world is anywhere we all come together. They come strong. They get loud. They love the music. But most importantly, they live life — every second — for all its worth! They inspire me, and I want to get out there and get going, creating the greatest night of the summer every time we hit the stage.
“Putting this line-up together has been awesome. We’ve got Dan + Shay, who continue to set records with their music and have been burning it up on their own headlining tour this year. We have an old favorite, who just keep getting better, Old Dominion — it’s almost like it wouldn’t be a stadium show without them! — and one of my newest friends in Carly Pearce, whose songwriting is so personal to her own life, yet so many people find themselves in her songs.”
The tour is scheduled to last from April 23, in Tampa, to Aug. 26-27, in Foxborough, Mass.
For all tour stops, tickets to the original concerts will be honored.
