Kenny Chesney's Sun City Carnival Hits Sprint Center on May 9

Kansas City, Mo. -- Having just been recognized as the #1 ticket-seller of 2008 according to Pollstar, Kenny Chesney gears up for another summer in the sun… his Sun City Carnival, which is currently slated for 50 dates across the nation, rolls into Sprint Center on May 9.

Tickets go on sale, Saturday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster Outlets or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000. In the event tickets remain, tickets will be available at Sprint Center Box Office on Monday, March 2 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $89.50/ $69.50/ $49.50 and $20 plus applicable service charges.

“It seems like it’s time to get this thing started again,” Chesney said. “By the time we’re done, I’m tired… but I’m never ready to be done. And after a few months off, all I can think of is when are we getting back out there! For me, I swear we have so many friends that we see when we look out every night… to be able to get out there and rock with them, well, it’s the reason me and the guys do this! I’m ready to move from the renderings to getting back into rehearsal, back into shape, back into making music and especially back to being out there with the fans.”

The 4-time consecutive and current Academy of Country Music and reigning Country Music Entertainer of the Year has tapped fiery vocalist Miranda Lambert and hot new group Lady Antebellum to be part of what is being the Sun City Carnival, a tour designed to capture the freewheeling, carefree spirits that mark Chesney’s time off the road. With a whole new stage being built, an even more powerful sound system being designed and video shot especially for the evening, this will be both an intimate and far more intense way to experience the high energy performer from Luttrell, Tenn.
