Kenny Chesney Confirms Pre-Tour Shows In Las Vegas


Kenny Chesney has revealed that he will warm up for his upcoming national tour with a run of club dates in Las Vegas. The shows will take place at the Joint in Sin City on March 16 and 17. Chesney confirmed the warm-up shows with an official statement.

"Some years, we do the Keg in the Closet at a lot of the college bars in SEC towns," Chesney said in a press release. "Some years, we do the Keg in the Keys. But this year, I thought we should do something different. Rather than the last-minute announce and scramble, go ahead and set the dates, and announce them early. We've had such a great relationship with The Joint, that room puts everybody right in the heart of the show — and there's so much great rock & roll history at the Hard Rock, I thought it would be a great place to kick off the year," he said.

"I've been thinking about the tour, what we're going to do for months. But even more than what's on the screens, or how we're going to do the sound and lighting this year, the idea of getting to hear the No Shoes Nation sing these songs drives me to do all of this," he said, "and so rather than waiting for Tampa, we're going to Vegas for a little party. As a room, The Joint is so live — and so close, no matter where the people are sitting — you can't help but feel the electricity in the crowd. No Shoes Nation is always loud, proud and sings their hearts out. In a place like The Joint, it's just that much more intense."
