Keith Urban joins Kenny Chesney on the 2008 Poets and Pirates tour

Kenny Chesney will get a little help from old friend Keith Urban when he hits the road next summer on his annual stadium tour . Keith Urban courtesy of Capitol NashvilleKenny announced Friday that Keith would join him for the July 26 date in Foxboro, Mass., followed by as many as eight other stadium shows on his 2008 Poets & Pirates tour.

Kenny Chesney first took Keith Urban out on his Guitars, Tiki Bars & a Whole Lotta Love tour three years ago. “Which is why I’m glad I have the ability to play stadiums,” Kenny says. “It’s the only way that it would make sense for Keith where he is in his career to be able to come out and do some shows with us. We couldn’t do this anywhere else…and it’s something I’ve wanted to do since he played the first stadiums shows with us three years ago.

“If you’re committed to bringing the fans the best show possible,” Kenny continues, “who else would you call? Keith does it all — and he’s someone I’ve spent time in the islands with, toured the country with, laughed with, hung with, made music with. It’s gonna be as much fun backstage when we’re not rocking as it is onstage — and that’s saying something.”

Keith Urban says he’s excited about joining the tour too. “What Kenny Chesney’s stadium concerts are is the biggest party you’ve ever been to with the loudest ghetto blaster you’ve ever heard and the audience still singing louder than us,” he says. “Me, I’m just a kid like 65,000 others that are going to run away with the circus this summer. Bring it on, Kenny.”

The tour will also feature LeAnn Rimes as an opening act.

  1. I absolutely love Kenny and I Keith I think that they can sing like no other can sing the way that they sing makes me calm because of the pitch and sound of their voice
