“Kenny Chesney at American Family Field is quintessential summer in Milwaukee. He brings great energy and excitement, and packs the ballpark with a memorable performance every time,” said Brewers President – Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “We are pleased he will be back to headline for the fifth time at American Family Field and look forward to an unforgettable show, alongside Zac Brown Band, Megan Moroney and Uncle Cracker.”

“I wanted a name that suggested – obviously – when all the good stuff starts to happen. The one thing I’ve learned about No Shoes Nation and these stadium shows is they start the good times early and they just keep it going,” Chesney says of his 2024 tour name. “But we all know, when the sun goes down, that’s when people really get loose and enjoy themselves.

“So, I can’t wait to get back out there, stadium-sized ’cause there’s nothing like 60,000 members of No Shoes Nation singing these songs. It’s gonna be awesome.”

Presented by Blue Chair Bay® Rum, the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour brings all the high velocity energy and songs people know by heart back to America’s favorite stadiums. For more information and to purchase tickets to all dates, visit www.KennyChesney.com [brewers.us11.list-manage.com].
