Kenny2016Tour_LogoKenny Chesneyalways had an affinity for Boston.Unveiling dates for his 2016Spreadthe Love Tour, he announces a show at Foxboroughs Gillette Stadium onFriday, August 26. Settinga record last year with 120,206 fans played toAugust 28-29this year,Chesneyreturns for his 14thshow at the home of the New England Patriots.

We have had so many special nights at Gillette, Chesney says. Every single one has been its own set of memories and when we go back this year, I want to know we are going to have the night that tops all the ones that have come before. The people in and around Boston are amazing, and I want to live up to all the energy they give us.

Having formed the Spread the Love Fund to benefit the amputee survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing, Chesneys been rooted to the greater Boston community in ways that extend beyond theconcert stage. In the stands when the Red Sox won the World Series, the high-energy performersaw the No Shoes Nation named at Gillette Stadium in 2011.

Even before we started playing stadiums in 2005, Boston was special, Chesney says. They really listen to the songs They really rock hard when you put it out there And its a place where I can bring my friend Gretchen Rhodes out to sing a song like Happy On The Hey Now, and people justgetit. Those are some kind of fans, and when we get there, I know its going to be the kind of night worth waiting all summer for.

This summer, ChesneysBig Revival2015 brokenine attendance records many his own–on the way toselling in excess of 1.3 million tickets.

I named this tourSpread the Lovebecause of how much our fans give us, explained the East Tennessean. Music does that: gives people the power, the energy to reach out to each other, to let go of their problems, to really hang onto those moments that matter. And in a lot of ways, that idea got concrete when we created the Spread the Love Fund to give all the proceeds from the download to our song with the Wailers to the fund the power of what music can do. It started in Boston, and we carry it around with us, everywhere we go.
