Kenny Chesney announces 2023 ‘I Go Back Tour’


Kenny Chesney announced a new North American tour for 2023, dubbed the ‘I Go Back Tour’, featuring special guest Kelsea Ballerini. The ‘I Go Back Tour’ is inspired by Chesney’s 2004 song of the same name, and concerts he held in his early career.

The 54-year-old country singer said on Instagram:” “‘I Go Back’ is a song about holding all those things that shaped you very close and keeping them alive anyway you can. In 2023, I decided rather than just go repeat what we did on this summer’s stadium tour, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of the cities we played on our way up, call it the I Go Back Tour and do just that.”

The I Go Back Tour will kick off on Mar. 25 at Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pennsylvania, and will criss-cross the country for a 21-date trek before wrapping up May 27 in Orange Beach, Ala.
