Kenny Chesney adds Orange Beach date to his spring tour
Country superstar Kenny Chesney added a May date at the Wharf in Orange Beach to his spring tour, which already included a date in Huntsville.
The show is scheduled for May 19 at The Wharf amphitheater and will feature CMA Vocalist of the Year Carly Pearce. General ticket sales begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 11 via Ticketmaster, which also lists a variety of presales starting as early as February 8.

Prices for the show will be $51, $91, $131 and $151, according to Birmingham-based Red Mountain Entertainment. Additional charges apply.
In March 2021, Chesney pushed back his touring plans to 2022, citing uncertainty surrounding venue capacity restrictions and other issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. His new “Here and Now 2022” tour kicks off April 23 in Tampa. With the latest additions, it offers a mix of 21 stadium dates and 20 amphitheater shows.
“There’s something about amphitheaters that creates such an intimate immediacy,” Chesney said in a statement announcing The Wharf and other new dates. “The energy is very different from a show in a stadium, and it almost opens up the songs in a completely different way. It’s kind of cool to feel that difference between the two types of venues, but I can tell you: both are absolutely the greatest sensations in the world.
“I never thought we’d be away from No Shoes Nation for three years,” Chesney said in the announcement. “Now that we finally have the chance to spend the summer together again, I really wanted to provide as many opportunities as possible for everyone to get out there and celebrate music with us; the sense of community and the way we all feel so alive when we celebrate what we love together. Whether it’s stadiums or amphitheaters, I can’t wait to see my favorite people in the world.
The Wharf Amphitheater program includes performances by Riley Green, Khalid, Cody Johnson, Tim McGraw, Jimmy Buffett, Koe Wetzel, Morgan Wallen and Keith Urban. Visit https://alwharf.com/amphitheater for more details.
