Kenny Chesney has officially made his long-awaited return to the stage on Saturday, April 23, with the launch of his highly-anticipated Here And Now 2022 Tour at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

The show, which was completely sold out and marked Chesney’s sixth time playing Raymond James Stadium, featured support from CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Carly Pearce, five-time ACM Group Of The Year and three-time GRAMMY Duo/Group winners Old Dominion and three-time GRAMMY winning duo Dan + Shay.

Pearce kicked off the show promptly at 5 PM with an 8-song set that featured fan-favorite hits like “Every Little Thing” and “Hide The Wine,” as well as several songs from her latest project, 29: Written In Stone. Old Dominion followed Pearce with a breezy 14-song set that brought the carefree vibes as fans swayed along to their summertime anthems.

“This is amazing! We are the luckiest bunch of guys that you have ever laid eyes on,” Old Dominion gushed during their set.

Dan + Shay, who used to attend Chesney’s shows every summer growing up, brought their chart-topping hits to life throughout their 20-song set, which featured songs like “Tequila,” “From The Ground Up,” “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” “Speechless,” “19 You + Me,” and more.

The award-winning duo declared their direct support slot “an absolute dream come true.”

Chesney exploded onto the massive 220-foot wide stage, that ascends almost three stories into the air, with his 2007 chart-topping hit, “Beer In Mexico,” which immediately got the party started and sent fans into a frenzy of excitement. 

To say that fans were excited to see Chesney return to the stage would be an understatement. The capacity crowd, many of which have held onto their tickets for over 930+ days, roared at the sight of Chesney, who entered the stage at 9 PM and didn’t stop playing for just over 2-hours.

Ahead of the show, the East Tennessee native teased a 26-song set list with a few surprises and he more than delivered. The eight-time Entertainer of the Year invited fans to “Live Those Songs” again with a career-spanning performance that included “Summertime,” “We Do,” “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” “Get Along,” “Knowing You,” among many others.

Chesney, wearing a red tank top and jeans, put his showmanship on full display while working every inch of the massive stage, surrounded by a top-notch production. He also paused to live in the moment as he played hit after hit and soaked up every moment of his long-awaited reunion with No Shoes Nation. His energy-filled performance spawned massive singalongs, happy tears at the sight of his return to the stage and memories that will last a lifetime and that fans will cherish forever.

“I knew it was going to be good,” Chesney admitted. “But this was other level stuff – the way they filled the stadium with light from the moment ‘Anything But Mine’ started, the way they pushed back ‘Noise’ like they were singing for their lives, the relief and reassurance,” Chesney marveled after the show, “I could hear it in their choruses of ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.’ If music holds people together, it also brings them together – and lets them release so much of what’s locked inside.”

“After four years, we were together again — and we were going to squeeze every last drop and bit of passion out of every single song,” Chesney said.

The trek marks Chesney’s first tour since his Songs For Saints Amphitheatre Tour, which wrapped up on May 24, 2019, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The show marked Chesney’s first full concert since May of 2019, as well as Carly Pearce and Dan + Shay’s first-ever time performing a full set in a stadium.

Now that Chesney has kicked off his Here And Now 2022 Tour, “Summertime” has officially begun!

With 40 dates left on the books, Kenny Chesney’s Here And Now Tour is sure to be the hottest ticket of the summer.
