Kenny Chesney’s massive stadium concerts have long been known as the country superstar’s calling card, but 2018 he’ll return to smaller digs for a newly announced series of amphitheater dates.

After announcing he would play 18 stadium shows in 2018, Chesney has now revealed 21 more concerts scheduled in amphitheaters around the nation. Representing his first full-scale tour in more than two years, Chesney’s 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour will now kick off March 16th and 17th with a pair of shows at Las Vegas’ The Joint, and will also include amphitheater stops in West Palm Beach, Florida; Bangor, Maine; Mountain View, California; and more. The tour will conclude with a two-night stand in Boston’s Gillette Stadium, which is projected to break the venue’s all-time attendance record with over 121,000 fans.

Chesney has tapped Old Dominion to open the new amphitheater shows, while Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay will support the tour’s stadium dates.

Chesney’s most recent release was the Live in No Shoes Nation double album, which collected nearly 30 tracks from his last 10 years of stadium shows. The album featured guest appearances from Taylor Swift, Eric Church and Zac Brown, among others, and debuted at the top of the all genre Billboard 200 when it was released in late 2017. On Sunday, Chesney was celebrating his first Grammy nomination as a solo artist, where he was up for Best Country Album for 2016’s Cosmic Hallelujah.
