October 29, 2014 at 6:52 AM (PT)
GILBERT will be a part of 15 dates in total, with details and on-sale information to be released in the coming weeks. CHESNEY had previously announced that he would offer varying support acts across the span of his 55-show run on the tour to allow for the best lineup in each market (NET NEWS 10/24).
CHESNEY has already revealed a history making run of ten stadium shows with JASON ALDEAN (NET NEWS 10/27), and was looking to add someone to the bill with equal energy and enthusiasm. "When you co-headline a tour with JASON ALDEAN, you've gotta get someone who can hold their own to go in front," stated CHESNEY. "When I looked around, for those stadium shows that BRANTLEY's a part of, he's the man for the job. He knows how to reach the crowd, how to make them rock -- and he's not afraid to push the rest of us."
CHESNEY's "THE BIG REVIVAL TOUR" kicks off THURSDAY, MARCH 26th, 2015 in NASHVILLE.
