Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band Announce 2011 Joint Stadium Shows

Photo Courtesy - BNA Records(NEW YORK) -- Kenny Chesney has announced nine stadium shows for his 2011 Goin' Coastal tour.  Zac Brown Band will co-headline with Chesney for these dates starting March 19 in Tampa, Florida.

Tickets for certain dates start going on sale Nov. 20th.  More arena and amphitheater dates will be announced soon.  Billy Currington is also on the bill for these shows.

In an effort to keep tickets affordable for fans, Chesney is pricing at least 7,000 tickets at $25 each for most of the stadium shows.

Planning for such a massive show doesn't just happen overnight. Chesney says, "To present it the way we do it when we go out on tour, you can't just make that up in January and then decide to go do it." The singer already knows what his stage will look like and what images he'll display on the massive video screens during his songs.

Chesney admits that he's getting more and more anxious as the new tour approaches, but he's ready to get back into life on the road. "It is a little bit of the same kind of grind," he says, "but it's a grind that I want now."
