Country music star set to make Heinz Field return in June 2018
PITTSBURGH – Heinz Field has today announced that Kenny Chesney will make his Pittsburgh return on June 2, 2018, with the “Trip Around the Sun Tour.” This will mark his 10th appearance at Heinz Field – each appearance coming in front of a capacity crowd. Chesney will be joined by special guests Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay.
The leader of “No Shoes Nation,” Chesney is one of Country Music’s most celebrated artists. With 16 studio albums, two CMA Entertainer of the Year awards and 15 tours under his belt, Chesney is also one of the most seasoned artists in music history. His tours reach new heights of entertainment for fans and have earned him the Billboard Touring Award’s Top Package Tour six times.
Rhett was recently named Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2017 Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards, also seeing his megahit “Die a Happy Man” win Song of the Year. The Georgia-born Rhett is set to debut his third studio album, Life Changes, later this year.
Old Dominion broke on the scene in 2015 and won Group of the Year at the 2016 ACM Awards. The five-member band recently released their second studio album, Happy Endings, in August. They will open the show at Heinz Field.
Brandon Lay will release his debut album, titled “Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers,” in the coming months. The Jackson, Tenn. native signed with Universal Music Group and has built a strong following while touring the United States.
