“No Shoes Nation" Invades Van Andel Arena

Kenny Chesney has announced 27 new dates for his 2013 'No Shoes Nation' Tour, making it one of the year's biggest tours. With several shows rapidly approaching sell outs, Chesney - who received the 2012 Billboard Touring Award 'Top Package' for the year's top-grossing tour and the "Road Warrior" Award, celebrating uncommon work ethic, professionalism and artistic integrity - is on his way to his 11th consecutive tour with more than one million tickets sold. The 45-date 'No Shoes Nation' Tour comes to Van Andel Arena this Spring on April 25th at 7pm.


"There's nothing like getting back on the road and seeing the crowd again for the first time," Chesney said. "This is going to be a huge tour and I can't wait to kick off in Tampa for the second year in a row."


'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." After this summer’s tour, Chesney will have performed 101 stadium concerts. He is a CMT and AMA Artist of the Year, a four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, and a four-time ACM Entertainer of the Year.


Joining Chesney on the tour are the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves (subject to change).
