It’s time to kick off your sneakers, No Shoes Nation.
Country icon Kenny Chesney just announced his 19-concert “I Go Back” 2023 tour that will take him to arenas all over North America from March 25 through May 27.
However, this go-round won’t be like his 2022 “Here and Now” stadium tour.
Rather than playing the same major cities and venues he always hits, Chesney is trekking to cities off the beaten path next year.
“I decided rather than just go repeat what we did on this summer’s stadium tour, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of the cities we played on our way up, call it the I Go Back Tour and do just that,” Chesney shared on Instagram.
For those who don’t want to wait to buy tickets to see “Little Gravy” live, you can actually snag your tickets as early as today.
While Chesney’s tickets won’t officially be available to the general public on Ticketmaster until Dec. 2, you can secure seats ahead of time on Vivid Seats before tickets are officially on sale.
Vivid Seats is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.
The site has a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure, and tickets will be delivered before the event.

As noted earlier, Chesney is taking his hits like “American Kids,” “Get Along,” or “You And Tequila” to cities he hasn’t performed at in far too long.
A complete list of upcoming Chesney concerts can be found below to see if your city made the cut.
Kenny Chesney new music
Although the 54-year-old star hasn’t released an album since 2020’s “Here and Now,” he did drop a single with Old Dominion in 2022.
You can find the music video for his new three-minute singalong anthem, “Beer With My Friends,” below.
Kenny Chesney opening act
At all shows, Chesney will bring rising country star and fellow Knoxville, TN, native Kelsea Ballerini along with him.
“Singing with Kenny is going home,” the 29-year-old singer told People Magazine. “To be able to go out to those cities like the place he and I grew up (in)… it’s a lot like going home.”
