Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney Trip Around The Sun Tour 2018 – August 18

The leader of No Shoes Nation was, in fact, wearing shoes Saturday night as he took the stage in front of a full Metlife Stadium crowd. Kenny Chesney rocked his signature look of a cowboy hat and boots with a tank top and blue jeans.

Before he took the stage, however, there were T-shirt canons and two video packages played on the big screen, the first of Chesney wearing a Steelers helmet and thanking the crowd for coming out and the second of celebrities and others saying welcome to the show.

With people having tailgated for hours, or days on the boats, the crowd was ready for the show and Metlife Stadium was ready for the crowd, too, with 16 ounce beers going for $14 apiece.
