Kenny Chesney will return to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2020

Stadium standby Kenny Chesney will run the big venues once again in 2020 and include Atlanta in the fun.

Chesney’s “Chillaxification 2020 Tour” kicks off April 18 in Texas and will swing through Mercedes-Benz Stadium on May 16.

Joining him for this round of shows will be Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and reggae-funk-hip-hopper Michael Franti & Spearhead. 

Tickets to all shows will go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 4. American Express cardholders can purchase tickets from 10 a.m. Sept. 26 through 10 p.m. Oct. 3.

“I love playing for No Shoes Nation any time, anywhere,” Chesney said in a statement. “But these stadium shows are always something so powerful, I can’t tell you how much anticipation goes into each one. Not to mention, we’re always wanting to top what’s come before – and I think this lineup might just pack the most fun of them all.”

Chesney is one of a handful of consistent stadium performers and has been a familiar presence in Atlanta. He filled the Georgia Dome in 2012, 2013 and 2015 and played his first Mercedes-Benz Stadium show in May 2018.

The country megastar notched a few more hits recently with “Get Along,” “Better Boat” and “Tip of My Tongue.”
