Kenny Chesney returned to Gillette Stadium outside Boston this past weekend, and broke some records in the process. The singer’s two night stand played to a record-setting 121,624 concertgoers.
Gillette Stadium is such a big show for Kenny that he scheduled two nights there despite taking off from touring this year. The shows were Kenny’s 16th and 17th in Boston, with 968,612 tickets sold since 2005.
“I had waited all summer to get to these shows,” Kenny said. “There are no words for it… beyond, just, ‘wow. Obviously, we’re not in stadium mode, so we made the decision to really lean into the music, really put the focus there. We’d not gotten to play these songs – and these two shows were our tour end without the tour!”
