— Country mega-star Kenny Chesney announces a new stadium tour — part of his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour — that includes a stop at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, home of the Columbus Crew, on June 16, 2018.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday, Oct. 27, at 10 a.m.
The tour kicks off April 21 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium and also features Academy of Country Music Male Vocalist and Country Music Association and ACM Single of the Year winner Thomas Rhett (“Die a Happy Man,” “It Goes Like This,” “Craving You (feat. Maren Morris)”), good time band Old Dominion (“Break Up with Him,” “Song for Another Time”) and newcomer Brandon Lay.
“There’s nothing like a stadium full of people coming together to remind you what life’s about,” Chesney says in a news release. “The energy, the moments, the fun. Every single one of these artists who’re coming out with us for Trip Around the Sun live their lives the exact same way: they work hard, they appreciate what they’re given and they love music every bit as much as they love life. I, personally, can’t wait to see this show hit the road.”

— Scythian is based in the Washington, D.C., area, but the members are no strangers to the Gem City. The band — performing at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Dayton on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 23 and 24 — has been a yearly fixture at the Dayton Celtic Festival since making its first appearance nine years ago.
“Dayton is like a second home to us, so we’re glad to be going back there,” Danylo Fedoryka said. “Over 1,100 people came to our show at Victoria Theatre last year. For us, to be almost 500 miles from home and sell out a venue like that was incredible. The Victoria was awesome. It was such a cool experience for us but we got a lot of feedback from people wishing they could get up and dance.

“This year we decided to do two nights where there was a little more room for people to let their hair down,” he said. “The shows will be more intimate and we have the freedom to make each night a little different.”
Scythian has always been a family affair with Danylo, his brother, Alexander, and their sister, Larissa. The siblings took it a step further with the side project, Cake for Dinner. The group, which recently released its second children’s album, also features the vocals of Alex’s new bride, Catie.
“It’s been almost eight years since our last children’s album,” Danylo Fedoryka said. “We’re super excited about that, especially because Alex’s wife, Catie, sings on the record. She’s incredible. Her voice is like an angel’s voice. Catie is super high quality so it’s really rewarding to work with, not just my brother’s wife, but this incredible professional.
“It’s great because it’s my brother and his wife and my sister, Larissa, too,” he continued. “The songs are for kids but it’s great for adults too. We mixed it up. It was really a rewarding project for us because we got to do the full gamut from kid stuff to adult stuff you could hear on a Top 40 radio station.”
Dayton fans will get a chance to hear Catie’s voice in person this weekend. She’ll be opening the shows with Mountain Duo, her new project with Larissa.
