Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw Begin Summer Tour Rehearsals
The Two Stars Prep For Their “Brothers of the Sun” Outing
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw staged their first joint rehearsal Thursday for their upcoming tour, “Brothers of the Sun,” and released this photo of the proceedings. During the more than three-hour rehearsal, the two friends worked out arrangements for songs on the tour—which kicks off June 2—including their current hit single, “Feel Like A Rock Star.”
“Yesterday’s rehearsal with Tim and I and our bands was as electric and exciting as we anticipated,” said Chesney in a press release accompanying the photo. “It’s been a long time since we’ve played on stage together and the chemistry and excitement is just so natural. It’s going to be a dream come true to have our years of friendship come together on stage for what will be one unpredictable, loud, hell of a summer, and I can’t wait.”
“Brothers of the Sun” will be the first time Chesney and McGraw have toured together in more than a decade. The tour will play more than 20 stadiums across the country, and more than 700,000 tickets have already been sold. The outing also features opening acts Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen.
