The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that the New Arrowhead will host a concert again for the first time in a decade when Kenny Chesney visits next summer.
Tickets for the July 30, 2011 concert will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on December 4, 2010. Chesney will co-headline the concert with Zac Brown Band, GRAMMY’s “Best New Artist” in 2010.
Fans will enjoy a full day of music, as Billy Currington, owner of five #1 Billboard country songs, and Uncle Kracker are also scheduled to appear.
“With four acts on the bill, we’ve created these shows as all-day events, and are working hard to make them affordable for our fans,” said tour promoter Louis Messina. A limited number of $25 tickets for the show will be available.
“We’re going to be playing new songs and lots of old favorites, and I can already tell it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Chesney, “I can’t wait to get back in front of my fans.”
Prior to the general public on-sale, a presale for the show at the New Arrowhead will be offered to the Kenny Chesney Official Fan Club as well as Kansas City Chiefs season ticket holders. Additionally, Jackson County, Mo. residents will be offered an exclusive ticket presale. Details about the presale offers can be found at kcchiefs.com. Chiefs season ticket holders will also receive email notification about the presale.
When big time soccer came to Arrowhead, there were a ton of people that came out just to see a different kind of event at the new stadium and I would expect the same thing for this concert. Chesney will sell plenty of tickets on his own, but just to see a huge concert at Arrowhead will be enough for some to buy a ticket.
Anytime you can bring concerts of this scale to town, everyone benefits. If this goes well, hopefully more acts will follow and keep Arrowhead busy during the summers.
