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.

Concerts rock the garden state and Rio’s closing ceremony concludes the Weekend Recap

By Ryan Hickey

The last dwindling days of summer have been nothing sort of beautiful. August has been gracing New Jersey with heat, sunshine, and fun. Here’s what you missed is weekend:

Friday, August 19th

Two very different artists came to entertain NJ on Friday night. Kristin Chenoweth performed at The Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ. She shared a post on Instagram after the show hyping up AC night 2. Black Sabbath rocked the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ. The Prince of Darkness (Ozzy Osborne) knows how to slay the show.

Wonderful night at the @borgataac… Excited for round 2 tonight, Atlantic City!

Kenny Chesney was in the Garden State this weekend. Adorable Sam Hunt opened. 56,292 fans piled into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ for the Spread the Love Tour. He shared a photo on Instagram of enthusiastic fans smiling, screaming, and waving the flag proud captioning it, #americankids. He described the audience as, “Magic.” We agree, Chesney.

@mlstadium…. 56,292 of you. Magic. photo cred: Jill Trunnell

The Rio Olympic games closed with a bang for the USA. We finished with a total of 121 medals with China and Great Britain following behind with 70 and 67. 46 of the 121 medals were gold, 37 silver, and 38 bronze. The US athletes are truly number one. New Jersey’s women’s all around gymnastics gold medalist Laurie Hernandez (Old Bridge) shared a picture at the closing ceremony on Instagram with track and field Olympian Sydney McLaughlin (New Brunswick) with the caption, “Jerseyyyyyyyyy!” We are proud of you, girl! GO NJ! USA USA USA!

Kenny Chesney Rocks Metlife Stadium

There’s no tailgate like a Hip New Jersey tailgate, and there’s no show like Kenny Chesney’s.

#HipNJ was in the house, and we captured the sites and sounds of Kenny’s biggest fans in this exclusive video!

The Garden State was rocked with that country beat as Kenny Chesney took the stage at MetLife Stadium packed with 58,642 fans. Did we mention Chesney is the highest selling country artist in New Jersey to date? Yeah, he’s all that!

Fans of all ages rocked before, during, and likely after the event that started off with corn hole, dancing…in pickup trucks and firing up the grill in the parking lot.

Jason Aldeen, Brantley Gilbert, Cole Swindell and Old Dominion got the crowd warmed up and pumped for the main event.

On their feet ‘til the concert’s end, Chesney gave his fans exactly what they came out for and let their love for country sing!
