Kenny Chesney Announces 2018 'Trip Around the Sun Tour'

Country superstar Kenny Chesney just made a lot of people happy with an announcement detailing his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour, which starts in April and continues through August.

The Trip Around the Sun Tour will feature appearances from Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay.

Chesney's new album, Live in No Shoes is due out in just nine days on Oct. 27, and features collaborations with Eric Church, Old Dominion, Taylor Swift and more. Now his fans have even more to get excited about.

Chesney took a break to deal with the devastation in the virgin islands following Hurricane Irma, but now he's ready to start back to work.

"Playing those two nights in Foxboro this year made me really want to get out there with all the people who LIVE this music," Chesney said in a press release. "We have so much fun, so much life, so many memories - all tied up in these shows and these songs - I am ready to get out there and kick into another summer where we can all celebrate how lucky we are to love life and be able to come together."

Chesney's last tour had some sour notes, particularly when Chesney fans rioted in Pittsburgh, leading to the hospitalization and arrest of dozens of concertgoers. Chesney will be back in Pittsburgh on June 2, 2018.

The Trip Around the Sun Tour has stops in 16 states, and pre-sale tickets are available now.
