NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Kenny Chesney has postponed his 2020 Chillaxification Tour. The decision was made due to issues surrounding COVID-19, saying there are still too many unknowns.

“With so many tours needing to move and wanting to make sure we are in the best possible circumstances for No Shoes Nation, I think – and I hate saying this – it’s best to move everything into 2021,” Chesney said in a press release. “In the best interest of everyone – No Shoes Nation, my road family, the staff at the venues – we have decided to quit moving the dates around on the calendar, trying to make a chunk of this year work and go to where we believe we can roll out the entire Chillaxification Tour.”

His PR teams said Chesney was remaining hopeful he and his band would get to play for the No Shoes Nation in 2020, but instead, he decided to move the schedule to 2021, when hopefully more COVID-19 issues will be resolved.
