Although it was only a few months ago that Kenny Chesney completed his biggest tour yet, the country star has already mapped out a pretty epic return to the road for 2016. Shortly after finishing his substantial Big Revival tour this past August, Chesney announced he'd be hitting the road with opening acts Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt, and Old Dominion on a summer North American tour called Spread The Love, which launches on April 23 at the Jordan-Hare Stadium in Alabama. The tour will weave through the U.S. until August 27, where it will finish up after back-to-back shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Tickets to see Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert are currently on-sale via Ticketmaster and are moving quickly.

The upcoming tour already bears striking resemblance to enormity of Big Revival, which similarly ended after two nights at Gillette Stadium. If history repeats itself next summer, Chesney may be on path to produce even more epic numbers with Spread The Love. The success of Big Revival was huge, as it became Kenny Chesney's first tour to gross more than $100 million, producing $114 million in total ticket sales over the 50-date run, Billboard reported. The tour effortlessly surpassed his previous top tour, the 2012's Brothers of the Sun co-headliner with country legend Tim McGraw, which stacked an impressive $96 million in revenue.
As it stands, tickets for Spread the Love are already averaging $201 on the secondary market, according to data provided by TiqIQ. The priciest date thus far is Chesney's July 23 stop at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, where tickets are averaging $269 with the cheapest ticket available for $108. Prices for booking hotels in Seattle through Hipmunk.com start from $74 with four-star options starting from $126 per night for any pacific northwest fans traveling to the July 23 tour date. His priciest show is the first night of the trek, which is averaging $141 with a get-in of just $414. On Big Revival, Chesney's most expensive night was his August 29 Gillette Stadium show, where tickets averaged $283 with the cheapest ticket available for $131.
