Hey Cowboyman! You are sneaky - you were testing me, but I'm smarter than I look! Thanks for having a great sense of humor and having a little fun with me. Happy Holidays to you!
And Sinner, I will definitely try your "reptile", but of course mine will have an umbrella and a few cherries in it! ;)
Cowboyman88 & Junkie, here's something you may both enjoy. I call it reptile and it's the only fruity drink I'll have. Perfect for me on the hottest of summer days..
Over a glass of ice pour ½ Jack Daniels & ½ Mt. Dew. Add a splash or two of orange juice.
After the first one, it's all downhill :-)
Hey EC Junkie, I thought you might catch that Chesney refernce. You seem like a cool chik and feel free to chat anytime.
Hey Cowboyman88! I hope to see you at a show sometime and I will definitely take you up on that offer of a sissy fruity drink, and I'll buy you a double shot of JD (but can I at least put an umbrella in it?! lol!) I knew you were a nice guy ;)
I thought your comment “you had me at hello” was sweet but it made me laugh as it has a strong connection to Kenny, your favorite singer. Renee Zellwegger, KENNY CHESNEY’S ex-wife, said that in the movie Jerry McGuire and it became a popular catch phrase, AND, KENNY CHESNEY wrote & recorded a song titled “You Had Me at Hello”! lol!
I'm laughing at all this 'fruity drink' talk.. lol
but i think all the pre-sale tickets will start at 10:00 a.m.
Does anybody know what time the presale starts tomorrow for the Milwaukee show?!
I just want to say I went to the EC/BG concert in the spring... AMAZING show... I also went to the Brothers of the Sun tour... Grace Potter was pretty kick ass, Jake Owen was hardly on stage, and Timmy and Kenny were GREAT. It takes more crews and more equipment to put on bigger shows... due to that, ticket prices are higher... Would I love to see EC at a small venue again- Hell Yes... But am I going to try my damndest to get PreSale tix to the No Shoes concert ABSOLUTELY. Its a great time. My only complaint right now is I just found out about the tour dates and presale due to a Church Choir email... I am a Kenny Fan Club member too and didn't hear a peep about presale and now I can only purchase singles from there... Fingers crossed that I can get 4 from the EC presale! BF will be so freaking excited (esp since I have his Navy buddy and GF on board to come up for the WI show from TN).
Hey EC Junkie, you had me at hello! Thats a good idea if I can stomach the girly sounds! Who knows maybe I'll see you at a show and buy you a fruity drink!
Too bad your going to miss out on a great show! and kenney hasnt worn puka shells necklaces in years! lmao!
Hey Cowboyman88! You need to look at the Kenny shows a little bit differently. With all those Girly songs and sissy fruit drinks, there's gonna be a lot of girlies at the show and if you are a single guy, that could work in your favor!
So come on, put on a puka shell necklace and get your badass to the show!
P.S. I’m just messing with ya!
Say what you will but chesney sings many slow girly songs and should be touring with lady antebellum or rascal flatts. The decision for EC to do this goes against everything we've always heard about him. Chesney just sucks, when I hear him it makes me wanna yank out my radio. Yall have fun on the sandbar surrounded by straw hats and sissy's with fruity drinks!
That's great Emily! We are getting a good group together for the Angel Stadium show.
BTW, your husband probably removed that pic of you and Jake Owen.....you looked WAAAAAY to happy in it! ;D The same goes for you girls out there with pics with Eric!
Im in for the Angel Stadium show on July 27th and so is Scott and Shelley! woohoo! I already put in vacation request and will bring kids. Cant wait. ECB, Disnyland and the beach sounds great!
PS what happened to my profile pic w/jake owen? I didnt remove it. Has this happened to anyone else?
very well said Junkie! I mean, Eric had to agree to it and if he doesn't like the way it turns out, he will do something about it just the same as he did with flatts. ECB alone is worth the money to me. Might as well stay and enjoy KC, if anything his band is to certainly be respected. They play out all of his songs.
Well, there will be no more small clubs where ticket prices are small, only bigger shows with bigger prices. That's the reality of it all.
If you do go to the Kenny shows, please stay for his set, he is entertaining and you just might be surpised.
see this is what i'm saying..the ticket prices are NUTS. that's why i'm ify about going to the concert..now i always bought 8 tickets for his shows because my friends wanted to go and they paided me back for the tickets but i highly doubt my friends want to pay 100+ per ticket and to be honest i don't want to sit in the nose bleed section..this up coming tour leaves me with some negative feelings..i liked KC older stuff but now i can't stand him.. i don't want to pay that much and leave after Eric church i might as well get my money's worth and stay for KC...the shows i saw EC at he made good choices in who he was touring with but this one im not to sure..and i dont think he needs any exposure his album won album of the year..i remember seeing him in small clubs in NJ before he played in big venues and to me that was the best time of my life..
Bridgette - Woohoo! Angel Stadium it is! Don't buy any tickets/hotel, talk to me first. Can't wait! Let's see who else will join us!?
Eric and the boys need to get spray tans for the Kenney shows! I recommend the color Golden Brazilian Bronze - it leaves a slight golden/sparkly tint to the skin! Beautiful! ;-)
We're talking huge stadiums here, with HUGE production costs. Even with the tickets as expensive as they are, Kenny must be doing something right as his stadium shows sell out! When Eric headlines stadiums his tickets will be increasing as well. Bigger costs to put on the show = higher ticket prices.
kenny chensey a sincere guy? i call BS on that..i think he's greedy with his ticket prices.. EC made them reasonable..just my thought.
Emily, Ithink you have a great idea about joing Kennys fan club just to get better seats. I think Im going to do that. Since we travel to concerts and make a long weekend out of it, our biggest expenses are always on airfare, hotel, car rental, etc., so Ill spend what we ahve to to get better seats. Th;nking of going to Angel Stadium concert so we can make a vacation of it take kids and go to Disneyland and Knots Berry FArm. ready or not here we come Gia!
I will not be going. I looked at ticket prices for the PA show when the presale went up and i pulled tickets all the way in the last few rows on the floor and they were 150 each?!?!?! 150 for a seat in which i wont be able to see anything except a big screen if that even. when i can wait for eric to tour on his own again (even if that means a whole year without him) for 35$ and be next to the stage i will do that.
kenny chesney is a rip off for fans!!
I just cant see hardcore EC fans hangin out on the sandbar. It just seems gay to me and Chesney sucks anyways!
LMAO junkie! just the look Im sure they want
This site will not let me edit or delete my posts
Milwaukee is actually dec 4th for presale 7th for general public
Anyone know when the presale for Milwaukee will be??
will there be any of these avaiable for those shows?.. i thought i read somewhere there will be ..but i didnt see anything for the philly show this morning....
Someone should check out Kenny's Fan Club Forum and make sure they aren't calling EC a BADASS TROLL and they aren't going to the show if he's playing. Hey......wait a second...on second thought that could actually work in our favor........less Kenny fans means better seats for us! :D Yeah!
The reason we all dig EC is because he's a bad ass and does stuff his own way! Hanging out with the corona cowboy is not cool. I just hope I dont read where EC is singing margaritaville! I would rather see him take off the whole year than tour with this troll!
Im really excited that at least I can see the ECB a few times in 2013 instead of none. I went to Orion and withstood a day of music Im not in love with just to see EC, so I think I can stand thru Kacey/EYB and if Im not lovin Kenny I will leave. To me, its $$ well spent. Just hope there is not an issue gettin tix :)
I love Kenny Chesney his music and his shows are great and besides that I will be at any show Eric is performing at so count me in! eric is businessman/marketer too, smart move to go on tour with Kenny and broaden his fan base, do only 20 or so weekend/summer shows and able to take some time off, it's a win/win for him and if you want to see Eric in 2013 this may be your only chance. Kenny and eric actually have a lot in common in their "overnight success"!! I watched Backstory on Kenny a few weeks ago and he was told he was too short and too chubby to be a star but he is fighter like eric. He defiitely changed the chubby part ;) Kenny's fan club is $25 so might be good to join to get better seats. I wonder if Eric will have VIP parties at KC shows?
EC doesn't need the exposure he would get from a Kenny, in my mind.
Yes Kenny wants him on his tour and why wouldn't he?!!! EC is quickly becoming big so him being on Kenny's tour will help Kenny. Not to mention how electric EC is live. And Kenny is a businessman - he has been around the block before, that's why he is supportive of EC and where he is going.
Just soooooo incredibly grateful that I get to see EC on his headlining tour and not have to shell out one penny to support Kenny. He is not my kinda country music at all.
The Kenny Chesney fan club will have first dibs at tickets since Kenny is the headliner.
Will church choir members be able to get pre sale tickets at the same time as KC fan members? Or do KC members get first crack at them?
Pre-sale tickets will be available through the Church Choir
So can will tickets be available for pre-sale on this site or through Chesney only? Looks like listed for here as well but wanted to make sure.
i noticed on the shows that are listed on tm....that they r only 2 prices...$40 then $220.....
I think this will be awesome for both artists! I think they would both see this as a great time to expand on their fan bases.
Man the Chief is way too bad ass to be hangin with the little island cowboy and eli young band. Next somebody is gonna say he's doing a duet with kelly clarkson. Sai its a dream!
I think the pairing is fantastic. It's not as obvious as zac brown or tim mcgraw. But it has made my day. I disagree with the "type" of fan these shows attract. I've been going to see Kenny at Gillette every year since 2006, and they have seriously been some of the best concert experiences of my life. Kenny can bring a crowd like no other, and his show is amazing and entertaining. I've never felt that kind of energy before. I've also been going to Eric Church for years and he is by far my favorite artist. I remember seeing him in 08 in a small club in Boston that holds maybe 500 people. I've seen him come up through the rank here is the northeast and all of his recent shows have sold out. This tour allows me to see two of my favorite artist, on a day that i look forward to all year. It's not really Summer til Kenny plays. I think it's great that eric is joining and I think it's amazing that he'll be playing to 60K people. The true fans will come into see him, that's the way it always is. No matter your thoughts on Kenny's music, he's created such a movement around his shows that anyone lucky enough to join him will feel the benefit. Congrats Eric! You deserve it! I'll hopefully be in the sandbar!
Columbia SC and Atlanta GA dates are listed on Eric's tour page yet everything else says Zac Brown is doing these shows...which is correct ?
Although several of you make good points about the amount of exposure this will give Eric, I am just not sure what these concerts will be like. In my mind, the crowd that Kenny usually attracts is much different than all the good people I have befriended at Eric's shows. And yes, Eric did say he was not going to be doing a full blown tour next year, so this does get him out on the road again. But it also limits the places they can go because Kenny is definitely not going to be playing the venues Eric would. There aren't as many stadiums in the world as arenas. At this point in time, Kenny also does not have any stops in Tennessee. Why not come back to Nashville (or even Knoxville in his beloved East Tennessee to play at Neyland)? Oh wait, he thinks he was born on an island instead of in the mountains...my bad.
But at the end of the day, this will be good for Eric. So with that in mind, I am not necessarily excited about the pairing, but I am supportive of the decision.
Kenny Chesney has mapped out his No Shoes Nation tour calendar with shows scheduled in 17 stadiums in 2013. Eric Church will be the special guest on most dates, while the Zac Brown Band will step in for three shows on the itinerary.
The Eli Young Band ("Even if It Breaks Your Heart") and Kacey Musgraves ("Merry Go Round") are scheduled to appear on all dates.
The first tour stop will be Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on March 16. Then there will be a break until the tour resumes on May 4, followed by a concert nearly every weekend through late August.
"I believe what we've created on the road is something special -- the fans, myself, the band, the crew," says Chesney, "But it's really the fans who have given us a wonderful, unique life. What we've all built together is the No Shoes Nation. There is no better name for this tour."
The tour will be sponsored by Corona Light.
Here are the No Shoes Nation tour dates for 2013:
March 16: Tampa, Fla. (with Eric Church)
May 4: Columbia, S.C. (with Zac Brown Band)
May 11: Dallas (with Eric Church)
May 18: Milwaukee (with Eric Church)
May 25: Landover, Md. (with Eric Church)
June 1: Seattle (with Eric Church)
June 8: Philadelphia (with Eric Church)
June 15: Kansas City, Mo. (with Eric Church)
June 22: Pittsburgh (with Eric Church)
June 29: Columbus, Ohio (with Eric Church)
July 12: Minneapolis (with Zac Brown Band)
July 20: Denver (with Eric Church)
July 27: Anaheim, Calif. (with Eric Church)
Aug 3: Atlanta (with Zac Brown Band)
Aug 10: East Rutherford, N.J. (with Eric Church)
Aug 17: Detroit (with Eric Church)
Aug 24: Foxboro, Mass. (with Eric Church)
ECB will be on tour at all stadium stops except 3. These three can be found by checking the Kenny Chesney or Zac Brown Band websites as ZBB will be filling in for EC on those dates.
Kenny just announced he is coming to Target Field, Minneapolis on his No Shoes Nation tour. In the article it said it was Kenny, Zac Brown Band, Eli Yound. There was no mention of Eric Church. Does anyone know if Eric Church is joining this tour? If so will he be on for every concert of the tour? I need to know if he is coming back to MN, this concert would be unreal!
Kenny had a lot of nice things to say about Eric during the live broadcast on his radio station this AM, including calling him a "true artist." Great chance to see Eric during a year where he's said he won't do a full tour!
I do realize why some are/will be upset, but with the support Kenny shows to Eric, I think it is tremendous and I am also excited. Kenny I believe is a sincere person, and I figure he thinks Eric deserves this. It took Kenny a while to become so huge in the business, and I think KC admires the way Eric has done it and never gave up. I have seen Chesney a couple times, once at Heinz field, and that says a lot because I hate Heinz field. You better believe I will be there on June 22, 2013 though, and Eric Church is the only one who can make me want to be there. I can not wait, and I think Eric deserves this spotlight because I know he just wants to play his music because that's what he loves. He could care less about the hype that comes with it. He just wants to play for his true fans. More power to Kenny for getting him on board.
End rant, haha.
TheBoot.com has the list of shows and dates. Unfortunately Eric won't be in Columbia SC on May 4th. Very disappointed that they made it sound like he would be there on the radio broadcast.
On June 29th they will be in Columbus Ohio. :)
