Kenny Chesney going 3-D for concert film, Las Vegas premiere


BY SEAN O’CONNELL

Award-winning country music singer Kenny Chesney is famous for his relentless touring schedule. But on the off chance you haven’t had a chance to see him perform in concert, Chesney has figured out a unique way to bring hsi shwo to you.

For a limited engagement beginning April 21, movie theaters across the country will host “Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D,” which was filmed during the artist’s sold-out Sun City Carnival tour. The film will be released by Sony Pictures Releasing.

“Kenny Chesney is one of the most popular performers in the world, so we thought he was a great choice for a Hot Ticket presentation,” said Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Releasing. “If you’re a diehard Kenny Chesney fan who just couldn’t get close enough this past summer, or even if you did and want to live those songs and fun again, even closer, ‘Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D’ is the perfect way to experience the intensity even closer than the front row.”

Chesney added, “It was an amazing — and at times scary — experience to have cameras that close, in the air, in a blimp … cause they’re everywhere. But when you see what this film captures … well, even for me, who’s in the eye of the storm, I was taken aback! It has all the energy, all the thrills and even better focus on some of the most rocking nights I can imagine. If you see this, you’ve seen me in a way I’ve never been seen.”

The 3D footage for the movie was shot over six nights in five locations — Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, Foxboro and Indianapolis — using a total of 22 3D camera rigs.

And if, by chance, you’re lucky enough to be in Las Vegas on April 21, Soony is hosting a star-studded movie premiere for “Chesney.” The singer is expected to attend, along with director Joe Thomas and a slew of invited guests including Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Jewel and Reba McEntire.
