GET READY FOR A "BIG" PARTY!
"BROTHERS OF THE SUN" Tour is thee concert of the Year!
Rehearsals are over for KENNY CHESNEY & TIM McGRAW as they load up the buses-AND trailers! Watch out for this Convoy!
The 21-stadium tour kicks off in less than 2 weeks in Tampa, Florida and when it wraps up in August, the tour will have traveled nearly 20,000 miles of highways....with 20 BUSES & 80 TRACTOR TRAILERS!!!
KENNY says, "It doesn't seem that long ago when it was just 14 of us crammed into a 12-bunk bus we called "the iron lung", because it leaked diesal fumes inside the bus. There weren't enough bunks for everbody so we took turns sleeping on the couch and floor, but we were living the dream and having fun. And even though we have alot more stuff now, we're still having a blast and just as passionate about playing music and taking it out to the fans, whether it be in a club or stadium."
TIM added, "It's been alot of fun rehearsing in Nashville, but it's time to pack the trucks and head to Tampa. I'm pretty sure there are towns with smaller populations than we have on our road crew."
And here's a little interesting trivia for you! The 283 member tour crew will be fed by a traveling catering staff that will serve up 3 hot meals each day! Almost 3,200 meals will be prepared for the tour in just the 5 days surrounding the opening show in Tampa. That is a BIG WOW!
