Music-Kenny Chesney

FILE - In this June 23, 2018 file photo, Kenny Chesney performs during the Trip Around the Sun Tour in Phoenix. After Hurricane Irma decimated the U.S. Virgin Islands last year, country superstar Kenny Chesney started writing songs and organizing relief efforts. Chesney is donating proceeds from the sale of his new album, “Songs for the Saints,” to a foundation he set up to support recovery on the islands.

ST. LOUIS ( -- Kenny Chesney has rescheduled his 2020 tour dates for 2021, including a performance scheduled at Busch Stadium this summer.

The concert was originally scheduled for June 13, 2020. The concert has now been scheduled for July 10, 2021.

Chesney posted on Twitter and said, "When we postponed our first wave of shows, no one imagined we’d be here today. Still wondering, still uncertain. And I still will not take chances with people I care about."

The post said that tickets are automatically valid for the rescheduled show, which will be in 2021. It also said refund options will be available after that show is announced.

The full note said:

“We have done everything possible… and things I’m not even sure we would’ve though of three months ago. Myself and m

y team have talked to medical experts, city commissioners, team owners, building staff, the NFL, often daily, because coming out to play for you is everything to us.

When we postponed our first wave of shows, no one would have imagined we’d be here today… Still wondering still uncertain. But as I said, when we postponed those first dates, I will not take chanced with people I care about.

I’ve laid awake many nights thinking about this, not wanting to disappoint all the people who are with us every summer… some who fly from all over the country to meet up, people who’re coming for the first time… friends who’ve met at the tailgate or the Sandbar. No Shoes Nation is not just people buying a ticket to a show, and I know that. I care, because you guys care so very much.

But that’s exactly why…

1) I wanted to tell you guys first

2) I hate everything about what I’m about to say

No one has tried harder than my team to make the 220 Chillaxification Tour a reality… Sadly, we can’t find a way to make it safe, to navigate water that’s just not getting any clearer.

For that reason, we have to postpone this year’s tour. We are hoping to have the entire schedule for 2021 finalized quickly. Right now, though, it’s you and me and that’s what matters.”
