3+ Hours, Taylor Swift, Joe Walsh, Grace Potter, Uncle Kracker & David Lee Murphy Among the Surprises
Nashville, Tenn. (March 27, 2015): Kenny Chesney – clad in a dark sleeveless Grace Potter and the Nocturnals t-shirt – hit Nashville like a house a-fire. From the opening of the New Orleans funeral drum corps/street preacher noir film until the last ringing note of Joe Walsh’s hard-charging “All Night Long,” the East Tennessean showed how much he missed the fans since he walked offstage after two sold-out nights at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium in 2013.
In a 36 song set that took 13 songs to get to a ballad, the 8-time Entertainer of the Year relentlessly moved across the stage, held the center, engaged the fans and delivered the kind of impassioned performance that made Chesney the only Country Artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years. Opening with “Drink It Up” from his 13th #1 The Big Revival, the show was a romp featuring not just his hits but many of his guests’ best loved songs.

Venue attendance records once again shattered on Church's The Outsiders World Tour
Chicago, Illinois (March 21, 2015)-- Fleetwood Mac christened the building on March 14, 1980 and throughout its history Rosemont, Illinois' now-dubbed Allstate Arena has housed some of the greatest names in entertainment. Everyone from The Allman Brothers to The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band to The Eagles and McCartney have fashioned the arena a touring mainstay in America's heartland, but last night (March 20,2015), and nearly 35 years to the day since its opening, 7-time GRAMMY nominee Eric Church set the new bar for live concert attendance with 18,626 fervent fans assembled for his The Outsiders World Tour.
"Our journey in the city started in 2005 for about 20 people on Weed Street at a place called Joe's Bar. Those 20 were loud and proud, and they turned this thing into damn near 20,000," a tireless Church professed.
The arena's previous record was set in 2007 by Vicente Fernández with 18,452 in attendance, as verified by Allstate Arena Executive Director, Patrick Nagle.
