Kenny Chesney ‘Cautiously Optimistic’ About Playing Live Shows This Year

Country crooner Kenny Chesney recently revealed that he remains “cautiously optimistic” about the prospect of playing live shows in 2020.

“I think we’re cautiously optimistic — but like I said, cautiously — about playing music this year,” Chesney told Taste of Country Nights. “But honestly, we play a lot of the venues that the NFL play. We’re just kind of watching what happens with that, and we’ll see.”

Chesney was originally slated to tour across the country, beginning with a show at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 18.

Dubbed “2020 Chillaxification,” the tour has been pushed back due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, the singer hopes to get back on the road as soon as May 30 for his show in Pittsburgh.

The tour was also set to feature guest acts, including Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, Michael Franti, and Spearhead.

“I think this tour is going to be all about gratitude for all those first responders and for all of us who did our part staying at home and all the scientists looking for a cure,” Franti said, speaking with People magazine.

Meanwhile, Chesney released his 19th studio album, Here and Now on Friday, May 1, 2020.
