When Kenny Chesney bounced onstage right before a packed residence at Busch Stadium, it didn’t experience like four years had passed considering the fact that his past St. Louis present.
He seemed the same, in faded denims and trademark quickly-to-be sweat-soaked tank top rated. He sounded the similar, rolling out a extended string of hits in significant-power design.
The only difference may well have been the region celebrity earning obvious on Saturday evening how a great deal he appreciated becoming again on tour “to sense the electrical power and to truly feel the love in this position.”
It was a nightlong lovefest from the opening strains of “Beer in Mexico” to “Reality” and “Til it is Gone,” when Chesney pointed out the atmospheric conditions.
“I received into town two evenings in the past and it was chilly and rainy. Then I woke up these days…” and the crowd roared, whether in appreciation for Chesney or the close to-best sunny, 70-degree day was a tossup.
Enjoying in a stadium suggests plenty of creation, and Chesney is familiar with how to give a broad venue a additional personal sense. His massive stage set was a splendor, with a panoramic design slender monitor throughout the top of the stage and big screens at still left, appropriate and centre. Alongside with introducing his 6-member band (and Harmoni Kelley on bass and backup vocals is a standout), Chesney also gave a shoutout to the crew that assembles the phase established all summertime extensive.

Chesney got fans wishing for even hotter weather with “Summertime” and “No Sneakers, No Shirt, No Problem” as he jumped around the phase and had some of the night’s largest sing-alongs with “I Go Back,” “American Kids” and “Young.” All 3 of all those are nostalgic odes to days absent by, and Chesney is aware of how to produce a wistful established of lyrics and tune. And although he didn’t do all of his hits (no “She’s Obtained It All” or “The Fantastic Stuff”), he strike many of the substantial notes of his 30-moreover No. 1 hits.
Chesney introduced opener Carly Pearce out to duet with him on “You and Tequila” and did the very same with two of the Outdated Dominion users — Matthew Ramsey and Brad Tursi — for the track they co-wrote, “Save it for a Wet Working day.”
He closed the most important established with “How Eternally Feels” ahead of returning for the encore “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy,” and brought the previous of his a few openers, Dan + Shay, out for that a single.

Pearce, the reigning Country Music Affiliation feminine vocalist of the year, opened the night time with a 25-moment established which include her present-day hit “Never Desired To Be That Girl” and could very easily have carried an hour.
