Chesney’s Big Apple Sell-Out
Okay, so, it's New Jersey and NOT New York City...but it's definitely in the area...and his fans will be coming in from all around the Tri-State. The fact is, Kenny Chesney is on the verge of making history as a country performer with the mind-boggling ticket sales from his Going Coastal Tour.
We're talking The New Meadowlands Stadium, here. Word from the stadium ticket office is that Kenny has already sold more tickets for his August 13th concert than the next runner-up, The Eagles Tour featuring the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban.
New Meadowlands website reports that Chesney’s performance will be the single biggest ticketed country show in the area since Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and Linda Ronstadt played at Giants Stadium in 1983 in front of over 51,000. Allaccess.com reports that over 44,100 tickets for Chesney’s show have been purchased as of July 28.
According to the Washington Post, Kenny’s show will sell out at around 50,000 total. Chesney’s Goin’ Coastal tour has sold more than 1.1 million tickets so far.
Go Kenny. Seriously, anyone who brings that much excitement and talent to the country field is alright with me. Country can only benefit from a sell-out like that.
