Kenny Chesney reschedules Atlanta stadium concert for May 2021

Kenny Chesney already announced the move of his “Chillaxification” tour to 2021, but now fans have clarification on when the country superstar will return.

Chesney’s rescheduled Atlanta show will take place May 22 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and include original support acts Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead. 

Previously purchased tickets are automatically valid for the new date. Those unable to attend have 30 days (from June 15) to request a refund at point of purchase.

Chesney was one of the first artists to postpone his tour as the coronavirus raged in mid-March.

“So much goes into the stadium shows, people have no idea,” Chesney said. “Take all of that, then factor in all the other issues that come with rescheduling, making sure there aren’t conflicts with baseball or other events nearby – and maintain the kind of quality we want to bring. There were so many questions, so many unknowns, but I believe music makes a difference in people’s lives, so everyone on my team, the promoter’s team and all of the people we deal with have worked overtime trying to get this sorted out.”
