Kenny Chesney wrapped up his “No Shoes Nation Tour” last night.

Posted in Artists Schedules, Kenny Chesney News, Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on Kenny Chesney wrapped up his “No Shoes Nation Tour” last night.

Kenny Chesney wrapped up his “No Shoes Nation Tour” making his final concert stop of the the tour on Aug. 24, 2013 at Boston’s Gillette Stadium. Chesney shared a photo of the filled up stadium on his Facebook page with the caption “Foxboro. Second night. Last night of tour!!”

Chesney started his final weekend of the “No Shoes Nation Tour” by hitting the stage in Gillette Stadium on Aug. 23, 2014 for a second show that was added along with special guests Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves.

Boston was the inspiration for Chesney’s “Spread the Love Fund” that was established with the Boston Medical Center to raise funds devoted to those who needed prosthetic limbs and post-prosthetic care that were affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Chesney made“Spread the Love” t-shirts available on his website to help raise money for the “Spread the Love Fund” with all of Chesney’s profits from the shirts going to the fund.

Chesney made the announcement in early August that he would be taking a break from touring in 2014 saying “I love the band, the crew, the whole team and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”
