Kenny Chesney to play free concert on the beach, June 20th

The rumors are true!

Country music superstar Kenny Chesney will play a FREE concert on the beach on Wednesday, June 20th. The event will be officially announced at a 10 a.m. press conference at the Wildwoods Convention Center tomorrow.

According to various sources, Chesney - who will be in the midst of a 22-city stadium tour with Tim McGraw - wanted to perform on a boardwalk and initially considered Seaside. He was said to be very impressed with Wildwood's beach and boardwalk on a recent visit.

Chesney will reportedly perform on one of Pink Floyd's former stages, with a massive set-up on the beach between Mariner's Landing and Adventure Pier.

The concert is being sponsored by American Express, which will distribute the first 15,000 tickets to its customers. These patrons will watch the show from a "fenced in" area directly in front of the stage. Others will be able to watch the show from beyond the barriers on the beach and up on the Boardwalk.

The set-up will also include two jumbotrons, and the concert will be televised live on the YouTube channel "Vevo."

The concert is set to begin at 8:30 p.m. and will end at 10:15 p.m.

Stay tuned for more information on what is sure to be one of the highlight events on the island this summer...
