Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, who famously toured together in the early 2000s, will reunite for the 19-date Brothers of the Sun stadium tour, beginning June 2 in Tampa. The tour also features special guests Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, and Jake Owen, and will play weekends at mostly NFL stadiums across the country, wrapping Aug. 25 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.
The artists are clearly stoked about the prospects of touring together again, and their enthusiasm was evident when interviewed Friday. "To do it the way we’re going to do it next summer, this will be more than just a tour for me," Chesney tells Billboard.biz. "To go out there on the road with a guy you’ve been friends with for a long time and made a lot of music with already, with all the songs and music that will be played next summer, this is going to be real special for me and Tim. But, to be honest, I think the people that are going to benefit the most are the fans."
