Kenny Chesney is ready to get back on the road for his “I Go Back 2023” tour, and the No Shoes Nation will have to claim their tickets soon to join the country star’s 21-day trip down memory lane.
In a statement, Chesney shared why he chose his beloved 2004 song as the tour’s nostalgic namesake, saying, “This song is about holding on to all those things that shaped you so close, realizing how special they are — and keeping them alive in any way you can.” So, I decided that rather than just repeat what we’d done, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of cities we’d played on our way! Let’s call the tour ‘Bring Back’ – and do just that.”
“I remember coming on, the madness of many of those dates,” he continued. “The markets where people were using chain-cutters to get into the park because we totally ran out of steam in Carolina… That’s the kind of energy that should never be let go. For all those fans—based on how good they felt last year—I want to bring you what’s been coming out of That stage to you, wherever you are, so we can all have this kind of experience together!”
