BNA star KENNY CHESNEY and his 'Sun City Carnival Tour,' is currently at #7 in the Top 10 of POLLSTAR's Midyear Report, the only Country act listed. POLLSTAR's Midyear Report is the list of the most successful concert tours as we hit the half-way point of the year. CHESNEY comes in behind BRITNEY SPEARS, FLEETWOOD MAC, CELINE DION, ELTON JOHN/BILLY JOEL, The EAGLES, and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. He also has the cheapest ticket prices of anyone inside the Top 10.
“I know this is a rough summer,” says CHESNEY, who grew up outside of KNOXVILLE with a working Mom and the summer job cash he could earn with odd jobs and playing for tips. “I remember how it is when you want to, and you gotta figure out what you're not gonna do. It's why we've really tried to keep the prices reasonable … put on a good show … but especially to give people for those few hours a reason to just have a good time! I can't solve the problems, but maybe I can get you to forget … to laugh … be free and remember how great it feels to be alive," he continued.
