Kenny Chesney is Going to Vegas Baby!

Kenny Chesney said that he’d be largely be concert free in 2010 save for a handful of one off festival-type shows. I guess the allure of Las Vegas was simply too much for this country boy to pass up. Chesney announced he would be playing four nights at the Joint at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino — May 14 & 15 and July 2 & 3.

With regards to the upcoming Vegas dates , Chesney said, “The beauty of The Joint is that not only is it a great rock-and-roll room, but they’ll let us get up there and play … and play … and play. We have so much fun, because we can throw in all kinds of stuff we don’t get to play in our regular show, and the audiences are diverse enough that no matter what we throw at them, they know the songs!

“That’s what’s so great about a gig where the capacity is 4,000, especially at The Joint. It’s the best of both worlds: you get the energy of a club, but it’s still enough of a stage that you’ve got room to run around and have fun. Because when we do these smaller, less structured shows, we like to let loose without tripping over each other or getting tangled in someone’s chord.”

Prices for the Las Vegas shows start at $150 and will be available starting noon Saturday (1/30) at the Hard Rock Box Office and online through Ticketmaster.
