Kenny Chesney Takes Over NYC’s Highline Ballroom for Rare Performance – Pictures

Kenny Chesney is often celebrated as one of the most successful touring acts across all genres — he could easily sell out NYC’s Madison Square Garden, the World’s Most Famous Arena, with relative ease.

However, the singer commandeered the tiny Highline Ballroom in midtown Manhattan for an exclusive, invite-only, intimate gig, the audience of which was comprised of SiriusXM listeners on Wednesday, May 1. If you weren’t there, well, you can still see what it was like based on these photos from the performance.

Even better, if you are a subscriber to the satcaster, you can listen to the recording of the concert on ‘The Highway,’ which is Channel 59, on Saturday (May 4) at 8 PM ET.

Before the gig, Chesney said, “To be able to strip it down and create the same kind of vibe that reflects this new record makes me really fired up. It’s tricky when you do the kinds of shows we do to take it into a venue small enough for this music to be heard properly, and I love the idea that not just the few hundred who get in, but everyone listening to SiriusXM’s The Highway will be able to be part of this very special night of songs and stories.”

The venue fits a really small number of people, so it really was an intimate and special event. Chesney played hits and new cuts from the just-released ‘Life on a Rock.’
