Kenny Chesney's Big Revival Tour Wraps as His Biggest Ever: $114 Million Grossed
It's the country superstar's first tour to gross more than $100 million.
With the final grosses reported from Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival tour, the trek has become his highest-grossing tour ever: $114 million.
The final sales stats, as reported to Billboard Boxscore, come from a string of shows that wrapped on Aug. 29. (Those five shows added another $17.8 million to the tour’s gross, pushing the Big Revival trek’s run over $100 million.)
Arena dates in two Canadian cities and stadium shows at Detroit’s Ford Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. were the last concerts on the country superstar’s 50-city trek through North America that drew more than 1.3 million fans.
The Big Revival outing easily surpassed his previous top grosser, 2012’s Brothers of the Sun trek with co-headliner Tim McGraw that logged $96 million in revenue from one million tickets sold at 23 shows.
Chesney wrapped the tour with a record-breaking two-show stand at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., the final destination on each of his tours since 2011’s Goin’ Coastal jaunt. From performances on Aug. 28 and 29, he grossed $11.6 million from 120,206 sold seats. That beats his previous box office record at the stadium, set in 2012: $9.9 million from 111,209 sold tickets on two nights.
