Kenny Helps Out Detroit
Kenny Chesney is designating a “working people section” with a ticket price of $29.50 for his Aug. 22 show at Ford Field in Detroit.
“I’ve got a lot of friends who live in and around Detroit,” Kenny says. “You know, you hear how rough it is with factories closing down, the auto business having trouble, and you want to do something. I don’t have any answers, beyond taking people away from the troubles for a few hours. And that’s what I can do, and I want to make sure the people who need to come out the most can do it.” Kenny adds, “When things got so rough last summer, we did a working man's section for our Nashville show, and the response was so strong, it got everyone in my camp’s attention. Going into Detroit, I figure, there’s a place that needs the relief as much as anywhere. So right out of the box, let's go ahead and designate that section for the working people who really need that night out. Go ahead and make the tickets less than thirty bucks, so it’s affordable.”
