Chesney to return to Target Field in July
MINNEAPOLIS -- Country musician Kenny Chesney will be returning to Target Field in 2013.

Chesney, who performed along with Tim McGraw in Target Field's first concert in July, will be making his return on Friday, July 12. It's part of the "Corona Light Presents Kenny Chesney's 'No Shoes Nation Tour,'" which will visit 17 different stadiums across the country.

The Grammy Award winning Zac Brown Band is also set to perform along with Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves.

Tickets for the Target Field concert will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. CT. At that time, tickets can be purchased exclusively online at www.twinsbaseball.com/concerts.

An exclusive pre-sale for all new and renewed Twins' season ticket holders is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4.

"Kenny Chesney's performance in last summer's inaugural concert at Target Field was historic and unforgettable on so many fronts," Twins president Dave St. Peter said. "With those special memories in mind, the Twins are honored to have Kenny Chesney's 'No Shoes Nation Tour' visit Target Field. We expect this to be another great concert at Target Field, a place on its way to becoming the best outdoor music venue in the region."

Last year, more than 40,000 fans attended Chesney and McGraw's concert in the first-ever concert at Target Field, which opened in 2010.

Next year's concert will be held while the Twins are on the road, as they're scheduled to be in New York for a three-game series against the Yankees in the final weekend before the All-Star break. The Twins don't return home to Target Field until July 19 against the Indians.
