Kenny Chesney Named Among Billboard's Top Touring Acts

Posted December 16th, 2015 @ 11:50am

Four months after its final curtain, The Big Revival Tour is still getting big recognition.

Kenny Chesney’s epic return to summer touring following a one-year hiatus has just earned him a spot on Billboard’s list of the Top 5 Touring Acts of 2015.

The “Save It For a Rainy Day” singer is the only country star to make the rundown, which also includes Taylor Swift, One Direction, U2 and the Rolling Stones.

Beyond its money-making prowess, The Big Revival Tour played to the third highest number of fans—a whopping 1,335,022—after list-topper Taylor’s 1,982,076 for 71 shows and runner-up One Direction’s 2,337,938 for 80 shows.

The Big Revival also earned Kenny his eighth Top Package win at Billboard’s annual Touring Awards.

Kenny returns to the road with his Spread the Love 2016 Tour, kicking off April 23 in Auburn, Alabama.
