The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that Miller Park has been selected as a venue for The “Corona Light presents Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation” tour in 2013. The concert will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2013.
The concert will also feature special guest Eric Church—whose new album “Chief” was selected as “Album of the Year” at the 2012 Country Music Awards—as well as the Eli Young Band and Kasey Musgraves. Miller Park will be the fourth stop on Chesney’s 2013, 17-stop tour and is one of three Major League ballparks that will be visited (also Target Field in Minneapolis and Angel Stadium of Anaheim).
"I believe what we've created on the road is something special," said Chesney. "The fans, myself, the band, the crew. But it's really the fans who have given us a wonderful, unique life. What we've all built together is the 'No Shoes Nation.' There is no better name for this tour."
Chesney will mark his 20th year of touring with this tour and his previous 10 tours have each reached more than 1.1 million fans across the country. Chesney made a visit to Miller Park in October of 2010 as an artist in Farm Aid’s 25th Anniversary concert.
“Kenny Chesney has a long track record of being one of the industry’s most popular touring artists, and we’re proud to have Miller Park included on his tour’s itinerary,” said Milwaukee Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Miller Park is not just a great place to watch baseball, it’s also a terrific concert venue. We have hosted several major tours since 2001 and we look forward to welcoming Kenny and his fans to this very special event.”
The 2010 Farm Aid 25th Anniversary concert at Miller Park hosted a crowd of over 35,000. Other major concerts staged at Miller Park and surrounding grounds include George Strait’s Country Music Festival (2001), N’Sync (2001), Bruce Springsteen (2003), Randy Travis (2004), Bon Jovi (2005), and Kid Rock/Sugarland (2008).
