Renowned event tailgate group to host parties for Kenny Chesney concert

 PITTSBURGH – Heinz Field and North Shore Entertainment Works have announced plans to partner with Alabama-based Tailgate Guys to host pre-event tailgate options on the Great Lawn for Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around the Sun Tour. The June 2 concert will feature Chesney, Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay. A festival-like atmosphere has followed Chesney and his “No Shoes Nation” fan club for much of his career. The 2018 concert on the North Shore should be no different, with tens of thousands of fans packing parking lots to tailgate prior to entering Heinz Field. “We’re excited to partner with Tailgate Guys for the Trip Around the Sun Tour in June,” said Vice President of Stadium Operations and Management Jimmie Sacco. “We’ve seen firsthand their experience and ability on display for Pitt games along the Great Lawn and expect the same for No Shoes Nation when they come to the North Shore. Most importantly, we are proud to offer fans more fun and safe tailgate options.” Tailgate Guys began hosting tailgates this season for University of Pittsburgh football games, also along the Great Lawn. With packages that include catering, parking, drop-off and bell-hop services, TV packages and more, the Tailgate Guys have something for every fan. Parker Duffey, Tailgate Guys’ President, and CEO commented on the announcement: “We are excited to expand upon our relationship with a world-class venue in Heinz Field and to show the No Shoes Nation what Tailgate Guys is all about. This partnership will showcase Tailgate Guys’ capabilities in the broader music and entertainment space and we’re more than ready for this opportunity.” Fans can reserve a tailgate experience by visiting, by calling 412-525-4125 or by emailing Each tailgate option includes tickets to the concert, parking passes, and a tent equipped with coolers, tables and chairs.  Concert goers can also elect to purchase additional upgrades for their tailgate experience such as on-site catering.
