The May 18 concert will also feature Eric Church, the Eli Young Band and Kasey Musgraves. Miller Park is one of three Major League ballparks on the tour -- with Target Field in Minneapolis and Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
Chesney's last 10 national tours have each drawn more than 1.1 million fans. He made a visit to Miller Park in October 2010 for Farm Aid's 25th anniversary concert.
"Kenny Chesney has a long track record of being one of the industry's most popular touring artists, and we're proud to have Miller Park included on his tour's itinerary," Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger said. "Miller Park is not just a great place to watch baseball, it's also a terrific concert venue. We have hosted several major tours since 2001, and we look forward to welcoming Kenny and his fans to this very special event."
Other major concerts staged at Miller Park and surrounding grounds include George Strait's Country Music Festival (2001), N'Sync ('01), Bruce Springsteen ('03), Randy Travis ('04), Bon Jovi ('05) and Kid Rock/Sugarland ('08). In 2010, Farm Aid drew more than 35,000 fans.
Tickets to the Chesney show will go on sale Friday, Dec. 7, at 9 a.m. CT at brewers.com/Chesney. Ticket prices will be $45 for the terrace; $90 for the field and loge infield; $115 for field, loge outfield and club level; $140 for on field; and $235 for the Sand Bar (plus applicable service fees).
Miller Park capacity for the show will be approximately 41,000. It comes near the end of the Brewers' three-city road trip to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and St. Louis; two nights after Chesney takes the stage, the Brewers will take the field against the Dodgers.
