Kenny Chesney injured himself on stage during a concert in Kansas City.
Kenny Chesney hurt himself live on stage during a concert stop in Kansas City on Saturday night, but the brave country superstar finished his show despite appearing in visible pain.
Chesney has his current “Trip Around the Sun Tour” at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday night, and the Kansas City Star reports that he was about halfway through a set that lasted an hour and fifty minutes when he appeared to injure a knee or ankle as he bounded about the stage.
Place of the stage, Chesney chosen for the finish of the show, though he was less mobile than usual. In place of that enormous installation, which consisted of three enormous video screens, he limited his physical presence of a small area at the end of the phase of the walkway. According to the Star, he was still in visible pain, hobbling around and, occasionally, doubling over.
The following fan-shot footage of Twitter appears to show Chesney moving slower than normal and with a limp as he sings “They Think My Tractor’s Sexy,” but he is still the game to run, and the roar of the crowd, the fans are still loving it.
Chesney of the performance came at the end of a six-hour stadium spectacular that was preceded by sets from Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and 2017 Taste of Country RISER Brandon.
