Kenny Chesney closed out his No Shoes Nation tour playing to nearly 110,000 fans over two nights this past weekend at Gillette Stadium near Boston. The concerts were Kenny’s 10th and 11th shows at that venue.

After coming off the stage at the second show Saturday night, Kenny said, “There’s energy, and then there’s energy. The fans in Boston have always been very, very special to us.”

Kenny’s 27-song set including a few guest appearances from his opening acts. Eli Young Band joined Kenny for a cover of the Eagles‘ “Take It Easy.” Kacey Musgraves joined him for a duet version of “Come Over,” and Eric Church returned to the stage to help Kenny with his current single, “When I See This Bar.”

Kenny rounded out the show with his first-ever live performance of “Happy on the Hey Now,” a highly-personal track from his latest album, Life on a Rock. The quiet, intimate song was Kenny’s way of saying so long to his fans since he’s taking next year off the road.

“I wanted something to bind us all together,” Kenny says. “It was a risk, and when I saw all the lighters and cell phones with flames aloft, I knew it was the right decision.”
