Kenny Chesney Is Performing At the 2023 DICK'S Sporting Goods Open

Kenny Chesney is bringing the "I Go Back Tour" to the En-Joie Golf Course on Friday, June 23rd. It was the Number #1 Billboard Country Tour in 2022 and there is no reason why it won't be the top show for 2023.

Many country superstar acts have come to play in front of the 18th green through the years including Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Florida-Georgia Line and Zac Brown Band. This may be the biggest yet.

In 2022, Chesney played at 21 NFL stadiums in front of over 1 million people and he's bringing the show to the Southern Tier. The concert will take place after the conclusion of the 1st round of play of the PGA TOUR Champions.
