Kenny Chesney was put to the test this past weekend as he hit the road for three dates in the wake of an injury in South Carolina.See Also:
Kenny’s right foot was caught between the stage and a hydraulic lift at a show 10 days ago in Columbia, and the initial prognosis was that he’d broken at least some toes. As it turned out, nothing was fractured, though he suffered a massive hematoma. Thanks in part to some painkillers, he ventured into Texas and Oklahoma for the first trio of post-accident shows, where he was loudly welcomed.
When Kenny appeared in Frisco, Texas, north of Dallas, local station KSCS showed up with a six-foot-tall foot cast which was signed by several thousand fans. In reality, Kenny didn’t need a cast: AllAboutCountry.com reports that he played "without even the slightest hint of the previous weekend’s injury." A reviewer with The Fort Worth Star-Telegram agreed, saying Kenny "took the stage with the energy of a Jazzercise instructor, bouncing from one side to the other."
Meanwhile, Kenny’s filled in another date on his summer schedule. He’s now set to play Aug. 6 in Sturgis, S.D., during the 68th annual Sturgis Bike Week. The show has the potential to be one of the biggest in his career: The Glencoe Amphitheater holds 110,000 people.
