Remember When Kenny Chesney Played Darien Lake in 2009?
Tonight’s the night!
After months and months of waiting for winter to be over and spring to trudge by, it’s finally here…Kenny Chesney is bringing his Here And Now 2022 stadium tour to Constellations Brands Marvin-Sands Performing Arts Center, known to us normies as CMAC, tonight at 7:30 pm. And he won’t be alone, either - the show kicks off with superstar opener Carly Pearce. What an awesome lineup!
If you’ve never been to a Kenny Chesney concert, you’re definitely in for a treat.
His jaw-dropping stage setups and dazzling presence will have you and your friends reminiscing about this show for years to come. In fact, people are still talking about the last time Kenny Chesney rocked the house in the Buffalo area - way back in 2009.
I know, it’s hard to believe that it’s been over twelve years (!) since Kenny last paid a visit to Western New York. On June 4th of 2009, Kenny Chesney, along with openers Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum, took the stage at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center with his Sun City Carnival Tour. Over 15,000 people packed the house that night, and it’s a night many of them will never forget.
Looking back at pics and videos of that last performance, it honestly feels like yesterday and makes us excited to experience it all over again tonight.
Whether you’re a Kenny concert newbie or want to get pumped up to see him again tonight, let’s take a look back at his killer set list from 2009, along with some awesome videos taken at the show to get you psyched. What songs do you wanna hear Kenny sing tonight?
