Kenny Rocks Foxboro in 2008

Kenny Chesney will bring his massive 2008 Poets & Pirates Tour to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., outside of Boston, July 26.

Tickets for the stadium show will go on sale Saturday, Dec. 1, at 10 a.m. ET. This past year’s show in Foxboro sold out in less than an hour, and tickets are expected to go just as quickly for the 2008 concert. “I know people don’t usually think country music and New England,” Kenny concedes. “When we first went in there, I’d not really played football stadiums—and we sold it out, and it rocked. It kinda amazed me and the guys.” Keith Urban, rocker Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes and Gary Allan join Kenny for the 2008 show. “Everybody on this bill knows how to rock,” says Kenny, “and I think that’s what these summer tours of ours are all about.”
