ATLANTA (November 8, 2012) – Kenny Chesney will make his second appearance in as many years at the Georgia Dome, as he announced today the ‘No Shoes Nation Tour’ will return on August 3, 2012 with special guest, Atlanta’s own Zac Brown Band.
“I cannot wait to come back to the Georgia Dome on August 3rd for the 2013 ‘No Shoes Nation Tour'” Chesney said. “Atlanta has always been an amazing place for us to play music, the fans know what it means for me and the guys to come set up our stuff and play there. Last year at the Georgia Dome was just special. If there is one city that has really helped build the No Shoes Nation, it has been Atlanta. They have been such a huge part of what has happened to me and I am excited to come back.”
Joining Chesney and the Zac Brown Band for the Georgia Dome show will be The Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves.
Tickets for the Atlanta show will go on sale December 7, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
Kenny Chesney, who has played a country-world record 85 stadium shows in his career, will make it to over 100 with today’s announcement of 17 stadium dates on his ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tour, which starts Saturday, March 16 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. More ‘No Shoes Nation’ tour dates will be announced in the coming months.
“I believe what we’ve created on the road is something special,” says 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.”
‘No Shoes Nation’ marks 20 years of touring for Chesney, who Billboard declares is “The biggest ticket seller in country music and among the elite touring artists in the world,” and comes on the heels of his wildly successful 2012 ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour, which blew away more than 1.1 million fans across the country – his 10th consecutive tour to hit that ticket sale milestone.

Guests will choose from either Sandbar or Premium Reserved seating and have access to the pre-game tailgate party featuring a buffet of Kenny’s favorite food, drinks and music.
