Kenny Chesney will be downsizing (but just a bit) for his 2019 Songs for the Saints Tour. The trek will focus on arenas and smaller-sized venues, rather than the massive stadiums that the country superstar has been known to play.

“I wanted to change it up,” Chesney explains in a a press release. “Last year was so intense, and amazing ... [In 2019], I wanted to go to where the fans live ... strip things back a bit, and make it a little more intimate ... I love reaching to the very top, the very back of a football stadium, but I also love the idea of really being able to see the back of the room.”

Chesney will begin his 2019 Songs for the Saints Tour in Champaign, Ill., at State Farm Center. A total of 11 stops have been scheduled so far, with more to come. Dates have not yet been made available, but a list of cities and venues is below.

“Sometimes it’s about stripping things back, and creating a different kind of experience,” Chesney adds. "This is the kind of thing you do for passion ... I never worry about the energy or the passion, but I think the songs are different depending on where you play them. So I’m fired up for 2019.”
