PHILADELPHIA, PA (CelebrityAccess) — Kenny Chesney broke attendance records for a country music show when he performed at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on July 11th, selling 55,131 tickets for the date on his Big Revival 2015 Tour.
The show marked Chesney's 8th performance at the stadium and the record he broke was his own.
“It’s funny,” Chesney said. “when you go back to markets in this size venue tour after tour, you wonder if people are ever going to get tired of the big show, the long day – and listening to the crowd last night, they were as alive, as loud, as crazy about the music as they were in 2006 (the first time he played there).
“Someone said we could’ve sold 15,000 more tickets easy, which seems crazy,” he continues, “only I heard that crowd. When they cheered, when they sang along, we could hear them onstage over all that instruments – and that’s saying something! Because, honestly, when a crowd’s feeling it, you can’t deny it, and when they’re not, that’s pretty obvious, too.”
Chesney is currently on the road with his Big Revival Tour, which is set to hit 23 stadiums in North America over the course of the summer. – Staff Writers
