Kenny Chesney has announced plans for an arena tour beginning in March 2023, bringing the “I Go Back” tour to venues and cities that he hasn’t played since earlier in his career. The tour, titled after his 2004 hit song, is scheduled to run from March to the end of May next year. Kelsea Ballerini will be along for the tour, performing in support.

I’m so excited to announce the #IGoBackTour 2023 with special guest @KelseaBallerini. Pre-sale tickets go on sale to @NoShoesNation members November 25. Join now for your exclusive code:

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, December 2 at 10am.

The tour will be a “completely different way to honor No Shoes Nation” in 2023, according to the singer, who recently wrapped his Here and Now tour, which played NFL stadium venues and brought 1.3 million fans to shows. This tour will be much smaller in scale, returning the singer to arenas where he first connected with his fans.

“When a year is as hot and alive as 2022 was,” Kenny explains, “you don’t want to try to recapture that magic. Or maybe it’s me. I still have the sounds of diesel engines and No Shoes Nation in my head – and that made me ask, ‘What else could I do? What would be something that would put me every bit as much in the music and give No Shoes Nation another reason to believe? How can we reach those people who might not come to stadium shows, who live a little off the obvious path, but who love this music every bit as much…

“And that’s when it hit me: ‘I Go Back.’ That song is about holding all those things that shaped you very close, recognizing how special they are – and keeping them alive any way you can. So, I decided that rather than just go repeat what we did, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of the cities we played on our way up! Let’s call the tour I Go Back – and do just that.”

“I Go Back” tour dates begin on March 25 at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, PA and wrap up on May 27 at The Wharf in Orange Beach, AL. Other stops along the way include Mohegan Sun Arena (Uncasville, CT), Rupp Arena (Lexington, KY), Greensboro Coliseum (Grensboro, NC), and Ford Center (Evansville, IN). Tickets are on sale this week, with presales launching as early as Wednesday, November 23 for American Express cardholders. General public ticket sales begin on Friday, December 2.
