Cait’s A-to-Z Guide for the June 18 Kenny Chesney Concert at Miller Park
On Saturday, June 18, Kenny Chesney returns to Milwaukee as part of his 2016 Spread the Love Tour! After breaking nine attendance records and selling over 1.3 million tickets on last year’s Big Revival Tour, the King of Summer is back at it again with 13 more stadiums and an even bigger lineup in 2016 as he joins forces with the biggest female country artist on the planet in Miranda Lambert.
In addition to Chesney and Lambert, the Miller Park concert will also feature four-time Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town and emerging star Old Dominion, who broke onto the scene in 2015 with their smash hit “Break Up With Him”.
As a big country fan myself, I’ve been looking forward to this concert since we announced it last October.
And, just like you, I’m getting all geared up for the show. I’m planning my tailgate with friends, shining up my cowboy boots and I’m blasting my “Good Stuff” playlist on repeat.
But what else do you need to know to have a fun and enjoyable experience? Read on for our A-to-Z guide.
