Kenny Chesney fans have been anxiously awaiting his return to the big stage. He previously had to postpone his entire planned 2020 Chillaxification Tour due to the coronavirus pandemic so news of a new tour has been a long time coming. Though the dates were planned to be rescheduled for 2021, the country star has decided to take a break until he hits the road next year. His tour has officially been rebranded as the Here and Now Tour with dates on the calendar around the country.

The new tour will be stopping at the same venues that were planned for the Chillaxification Tour which include major stadiums like Houston's Minute Maid Park and Nashville's Nissan Stadium. Those who purchased tickets from the original tour will be able to keep them for the new dates or seek a refund if preferred.

"The idea that it would be three years before I would stand in the end zone of [Massachusetts'] Gillette Stadium, where No Shoes Nation was born, wasn't something any of us could conceive [in 2020]," says Chesney in a press release. "I still can't really believe it ... We're calling the tour Here and Now 2022 because when we get together, there is only the present -- and it's so electric and good, I know I don't want it to end. I just want to be 100 percent there with all of you."

The rebranded name of the tour is fitting as the superstar released his single "Here and Now," which he co-wrote with Craig Wiseman, David Lee Murphy, and David Garcia, back in 2020. The song is featured on Chesney's nineteenth studio album, also called Here and Now, which was released on May 1, 2020.
