INJURY FORCES KENNY TO POSTPONE TOUR

A torn ligament in Kenny Chesney's right ankle is forcing the entertainer to cancel and reschedule the opening weekend of his upcoming "Somewhere In The Sun Tour." Green Bay, Wis., Fargo, N.D. and St. Paul, Minn. shows will be rebooked. "I know the fans in Green Bay, Fargo and St. Paul are gonna be disappointed," said Kenny. "But they're not half as disappointed as I am about not being there. I was very excited about kicking off this tour, but hopefully this will only be a short setback... and you can bet I'm gonna be real serious about my physical therapy 'cause I wanna be in fighting shape and good to go for the shows."

Kenny's physician, Dr. Burton Elrod, said, "Mr. Chesney has a severe ligament injury to his right ankle. He's going to have to undergo extensive and immediate physical therapy and rehab. He's going to have to play sore-with his ankle taped or with a brace under his boot, but he's like an athlete who can perform with some pain. He wants to get back out there and because he's so athletic and in such good shape, he is going to heal a lot better and quicker than most people."
