Kenny Chesney kicked off his 2018 Trip Around The Sun tour on Saturday (April 21st) in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. The superstar performed for 127 minutes singing 25 songs for the crowd who began lining up to get in their seats before day break.
Kenny said, “Music is medicine, and it’s energy, and it’s fuel. To me, when music is really firing, it can help you do impossible things, lift you out of unthinkable problems and give you a reason to keep going . . . When people come together in the name of music, then let go, there’s no feeling like it. Listening to the fans sing ‘American Kids’ and ‘Setting the World On Fire’ was a total rush. It’s not the only reason I do this, but it’s a good one.”
Raymond James is the first of 19 stadiums that Kenny will perform at throughout the summer, along with special guest Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay. Next up is Miller Park in Milwaukee on April 28th.
