Kenny Chesney Sets New Personal Tour Record
Country superstar Kenny Chesney and his Big Revival tour has set a new personal milestone for the country star. The singer’s 2015 North American trek ran from March to August, and now Billboard reports the 50-city run drew more than 1.3 million fans and raked in $114 million, Chesney’s first trek to gross over $100 million.
That figure cracks his previous best from his 2012 co-headlining Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw, which boasted one million tickets sold from 23 shows, grossing $96 million. The Big Revival Tour’s final two shows, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on August 28-29, also set a new Chesney record for the venue. The pair of performances grossed $11.6 million from 120,206 seats sold, an increase from the $9.9 million raised from 111,209 seats filled over two nights in 2012.
