Country star Chesney coming to Heinz Field in July

Kenny Chesney, along with co-headliners the Zac Brown Band, will visit Heinz Field on July 2 as part of the “Goin’ Coastal Tour.”

The tour itinerary was released this morning by Shorefire Media, and includes stops in Tampa, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Green Bay, Wisc., Philadelphia, Kansas City, Detroit and Foxboro, Mass.

Chesney, country music’s top touring draw, had sold more than a million tickets a year for eight consecutive years before taking 2010 off. He filled up his time by making two movies and completing his new album, “Hemingway’s Whiskey,” which debuted at No. 1 in September.

“What’s going to be different for me is the new music,” Chesney told The Associated Press in an e-mail. “When we hit the stage this spring, we’ll be doing a lot of songs from ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ and our show needed that change. It’s going to allow me to really make the set different than it’s been and make the show more spontaneous.”

Chesney will announce more arena and amphitheater dates later this year for what he says will be his biggest tour since 2006.

Tickets for the Pittsburgh date, which will range from $29 to $250, are slated to go on sale Dec. 4 through Ticketmaster (800-745-3000 or ).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
