Country superstar Kenny Chesney is coming to Tampa in 2020 along with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead.

It's part of a tour spanning 20 major stadiums across the country. The Tampa show will be at Raymond James Stadium on May 9, 2020.

The "Chillaxification 2020" tour kicks off Saturday, April 18 at AT&T Stadium and goes through August 28 at Gillette Stadium.

Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m.

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public starting Thursday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. through Thursdsay, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m.

"These stadium shows are the most fun thing I do," says the high-energy songwriter. "It's been a year, so when I get out there, I wanna make sure that No Shoes Nation is being rocked, having fun and getting all the music they can out of the day. We always try to do something different, bring someone new - and for anyone who's never seen Michael Franti and Spearhead, just wait!"

"I love playing for No Shoes Nation any time, anywhere," says the soft-spoken superstar, "but these stadium shows are always something so powerful, I can't tell you how much anticipation goes into each one. Not to mention, we're always wanting to top what's come before - and I think this lineup might just pack the most fun of them all."

With the multiple week No. 1 "Get Along" from his deeply personal Songs for the Saints, benefiting the Love for Love City Fund, and the steamy "Tip of My Tongue" hovering just outside the Top 10 at Country radio, there's a lot of new music, old favorites and surprises on tap for what will be the summer's biggest tour.
