Date For Kenny Chesney’s Wilkes-Barre Show Announced

November 19, 2018 GMT

Kenny Chesney’s previously announced tour has firmed up the date on which he will visit Northeast Pennsylvania. The country music superstar will perform Friday, May 10, at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, Wilkes-Barre Twp., the arena announced Monday. The show’s time and ticket information have not been released. While Chesney has spent the last several years playing to crowds at stadiums across the country, he decided to bring his music to smaller, more intimate venues for the Songs for the Saints 2019 Tour. Chesney said in an announcement that “this tour is going to really feel like a club show — and put the music front and center.” “We know how to do stadiums, and we love the rush of those shows,” he added. “But you never want to get to where you take it for granted, or you’re so used to it, it’s just what you do. There’s a real intimacy even in arenas that you don’t have in a stadium, and it’s something we’ve not had for a while. To me, it’s a whole other canvas for us – and I’m psyched about it.” The tour kicks off Thursday, April 4, in Louisville, Kentucky. For more information, visit mohegansunarenapa.com.
