On Aug. 28, after more than 60 shows, Kenny Chesney closed out his Big Revival Tour. Even though he’s just beginning some well-deserved time off, Chesney is already thinking about his future.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Chesney says he’s happy to spend more time thinking creatively about the next part of his career. He’s even considering switching things up for his next tour, which may mean taking his music to other countries.
“I’ve never gone overseas,” he explained. “I think it would be fun to take a couple of acoustic guitars and go to Ireland and Australia and just play and film it. And then come back the next half of the year.”
Not only is Chesney thinking of traveling the globe for his next tour, he’s also considering the addition of smaller, more intimate shows to coincide with his next stadium tour. These stripped-down gigs would feature more of Chesney’s lesser-known songs that haven’t made it onto his set lists in recent years.
“I think it would be fun for me and the fans that really love those songs and never get to hear them. That’s something we may do. I can see myself really loving that,” Chesney said. “Feeding my soul and theirs, but still keeping the business model that we have out here.”
Chesney will have plenty of time to decide what he wants to do next. He’s set to perform at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas later this month before clocking in a few weeks of much-needed rest and relaxation.
