Get your boots ready and don’t bother washing the truck, ‘cause Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw are fixin’ to tear the place up as they bring their much-anticipated “Brothers Of The Sun Tour” to the Lucas Oil Stadium on July 28, 2012 at 4:30pm. It was 2001 the last time these two country icons hit the road together. Only back then, Tim McGraw was the headliner and Chesney was a star on the rise. Enter 2012: Now, Chesney is a seasoned country superstar with four Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year awards under his belt. Oh, and Tim McGraw is no slouch either. McGraw, who has now achieved 32 number-1 hits, comes armed with yet another soon-to-be smash hit, “‘Truck Yeah”. He is also an accomplished actor whose resume include such films as the critically-acclaimed “Friday Night Lights” and the Oscar-nominated “The Blind Side”.
Saturday’s concert at Lucas Oil will make it their 19th stop across the U.S. on a tour that kicked off on June 2, 2012 in Tampa and will conclude at—of all places—Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. This promises to be one of the top shows of the summer without a doubt. McGraw is one of those rare performers who is a natural born showman. In combination with Chesney, whose one-of-a-kind approach to country music has captivated millions, this promises to be a very special concert experience indeed.
Even the opening acts bring something to the house. Jake Owen, a native Floridian who was signed to RCA Records Nashville in 2005, has already had 3 Top-20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. And Vermont-based, indy-rock band Grace Potter and the Nocturnals signed with Hollywood Records in 2005. The band has already released 3 albums, the third of which has topping iTunes charts and even received international attention.
“Brothers of the Sun” tickets will be priced from $29.50 to $250. Local country stations WFMS-FM (95.5) and WLHK-FM (97.1) will be on-site hosting a fun and free tailgate parties prior to the main show.
