Kenny Chesney Sells Out Milwaukee’s Miller Park

Debuts new tune and sings “Happy Birthday” to the King.

Any Kenny Chesney stadium show is going to be big, but the man took it up a notch for his sold-out show at Milwaukee's Miller Park on Saturday night.

Revved up on the energy from the capacity crowd (more than 43,000), Kenny invited tourmate Eric Church onto the stage to share the spotlight as he debuted the new song "When I See This Bar."

"'When I See This Bar’ is the kind of song you have to have lived," says Kenny. "Most people do, they just never step back and realize what all those lost nights, afternoon beers and friendships really mean. They make you who are, get you through tough things and get you laughing. . . . Obviously, ‘When I See This Bar’ is important to me; I know Eric’s been there, too, and knows that power of place, so it was great to get him up there.”

Kenny also got the crowd to join him in a chorus of "Happy Birthday" for the King of Country Music himself, George Strait, who turned 61 on Saturday.

Next stop for the No Shoes Nation Tour—May 23 in Raleigh, N.C.
