KENNY CHESNEY
THE BIG REVIVAL TOUR

 

FRIDAY, JULY 3 & SATURDAY, JULY 4 AT 8 P.M.

 

Tickets on sale Friday, April 10 at 10 a.m.

 

Country superstar Kenny Chesney announced from The Joint’s stage this weekend that he is adding two more Las Vegas shows to The Big Revival Tour. Chesney will return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 10 at 10 a.m.

 

“We helped open this place [six] years ago,” Chesney announced while on stage at The Joint. “It feels good to be back, we’re going to a lot of places this summer but we’ll be coming back here in July. This is the eighth time we’ve played here and we can’t get enough.”

 

Fun fact: Chesney has played The Joint more than any other artist or band (excluding the residency bands) with a total of nine shows, which included a show for the opening of the new Joint in April 2009. The two July shows will bring it to eleven amazing performances by the country superstar at the venue.

 

Chesney performed a set full of his biggest hits including “Summertime,” “American Kids,” and “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” as well as a few cover songs such as “Whole Lotta Rosey” during his packed, two-night concert series at The Joint. The crowd partied along as they experienced his shows in a more intimate setting than his typical arena-sized concerts.

 

The household name and country musician began his road to fame in 1994 by releasing his first album, In My Wildest Dreams, and quickly rose to stardom with 14 of his 15 albums becoming certified gold or higher by the Recording Industry Association of America. Chesney has sold more tickets than any other artist of the 21st century, selling over 1 million tickets during each of his past 10 tours.

 

Chesney won the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year Award a combined eight times with more than 24 No. 1 hits topping the Billboard  Hot Country Songs chart. He has collaborated with other iconic country musicians such as Jimmy Buffet, Reba McEntire, Toby Keith and George Strait.

ACM 50th Milestone Award_David Yurman

The Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions announced today that Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Reba, George Strait, Taylor Swift, and Brooks & Dunn will be honored with the prestigious 50th Anniversary Milestone Award commemorating their groundbreaking career achievements in ACM Awards history. The seven honorees will each receive an exclusive trophy created by renowned jewelry and timepiece designer, David Yurman, during the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards. The ceremony, co-hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, will be broadcast LIVE, and as previously announced, extended by half an hour in celebration of its golden anniversary, from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8:00 PM – 11:30PM ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

 

The Academy of Country Music 50th Anniversary Milestone Award recognizes artists that have advanced the popularity and acceptance of country music by accomplishing milestones unique to the Academy of Country Music, voted on by the ACM Board of Directors.

 

“The history of the ACM Awards and country music would not be the same without the incredible achievements by these seven superstars,” said Bob Romeo, CEO for the Academy of Country Music. “We are so thankful to David Yurman for partnering with us and creating such a perfectly crafted trophy that memorializes these amazing milestones.”

 

The 50th Anniversary Milestone Award trophy, designed by David Yurman, is crafted in America by master silversmiths and sculpted out of more than 1,010 grams of sterling silver on a zinc base. Each aspect of the special award reflects an element of the brand. The curved silver flutes echo the iconic Cable motif, and the hat is edged with 4.16 carats of black diamonds while the band gleams in 18k gold, introducing the designer’s love of mixing metals. Topping off the statue is black onyx carved in the shape of David’s signature Albion® gemstone, with the numeral 50 inlaid in 18k gold. Each winner’s name will be engraved in the sterling silver plate and the back of the base features the designer’s logo.

 

“These artists have reached an incredible milestone in their careers – this acknowledgement is extraordinary,” said Designer and CEO, David Yurman. “And the fact that the Academy of Country Music asked me, a sculptor turned jeweler, to collaborate on this award was truly an honor.”
