Chesney will make this his sixth Arrowhead show in seven years. Each one drew well over 50,000 fans.
Tickets are $27 to $325.
Taylor Swift, September 8 at Arrowhead
Talk about mega-attendance. Taylor Swift is the venue-sellout queen. She packed the Sprint Center two nights in a row back in 2013 and 2015. Swift’s latest album, “Reputation,” is what this tour’s all about.
Tickets are $45.50 to $420.50. VIP packages are available for $495 to $895.
Ed Sheeran, October 13 at Arrowhead
Sheeran opened for the Rolling Stones in 2015. He knows how to do Arrowhead! As a headliner, he’ll be great.

Pink, March 15 at Sprint Center
This is one of the most anticipated KC concerts of 2018. Her live shows are lavish spectacles, and her music is fearless. Just go.

Miranda Lambert with Jon Pardi and Ashley McBryde, March 17 at Sprint Center
Lambert headlines at the Sprint Center, highlighting her sixth album, “The Weight of These Wings.” Much of that music chronicles her highly publicized divorce from country star Blake Shelton. She’s a country powerhouse.
Tickets are $39.75 and $59.75.
The Eagles, March 19 at Sprint Center
Okay, so they’re not the same without founding member Glenn Frey, who died nearly two years ago. But, c’mon, it’s the Eagles. They still have Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmidt. Vince Gill will also be part of the band on this tour. This is the Eagles’ first Kansas City appearance since 2013.
