Lambeau Field will host its second concert ever in 2015. Kenny Chesney will return to the Green Bay venue on June 20, 2015, along with Jason Aldean, amidst a summer stadium tour. Chesney is the only act to have played Lambeau Field since its groundbreaking nearly 50 years ago, performing in 2011 in front of a sellout crowd. Despite rave reviews of that 2011 concert and calls to host more live music, ongoing construction over the past three years has forced officials at Lambeau to put a hiatus on events other than football until now.
Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour and Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour are scheduled to coincide for 10 shows at football stadiums across the country. Starting on May 2 in San Francisco and ending in Boston on August 28, the duo’s show at Lambeau will be third on the slate.
The show, expected to last a whopping six hours, will feature a number of other special guests, including Brantley Gilbert and Cole Swindle. Tailgating in the Lambeau Field parking lot will begin at 1PM and the show gets underway at 5PM.
Both Chesney and Aldean are coming off of major Billboard hit releases. Chesney’s album of the same name as his tour managed to top the charts in October with nearly 150,000 copies sold in its’ first week. Aldean, meanwhile, will highlight songs from his wildly successful latest album “Old Boots, New Dirt”.
