Kenny Chesney concert sells out in 8 minutes

Maybe that old adage is true - absence does make the heart grow fonder.

After taking a year off from touring to work on his documentary, "Boys of Fall," and a new album, Kenny Chesney is returning to the road. And his fans are ecstatic. His show in Foxboro, Massachusetts, sold out just 8 minutes after tickets went on sale Saturday night.

It's the sixth time Kenny Chesney has sold out the Gillette Stadium, according to CMT.

"The love affair I share with the fans in New England is like no other, and that has been built over the years," he said. "I can't wait to see their faces and spend an evening with them next summer. It's gonna feel like coming home."

According to the Urban Country Blog, Chesney was the second biggest ticket seller of the decade and is the only artist in any genre to sell over a million tickets for eight consecutive summers. The four-time CMA entertainer of the year's Goin' Coastal tour starts in Tampa, Florida, on March 19. He'll be co-headlining the stadium shows with the Zac Brown Band.

Here are the stadium tour dates:

Saturday, March 19: Tampa, Florida - Raymond James Stadium (on sale December 11)
Saturday, April 16: Dallas, Texas - Cowboys Stadium (on sale December 4)
Saturday, June 4: Washington, DC - FedEx Field (on sale December 3)
Saturday, June 11: Green Bay, Wisconsin - Lambeau Field (on sale December 11)
Saturday, June 18: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Lincoln Financial Field (on sale November 20)
Saturday, July 2: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Heinz Field (on sale December 4)
Saturday, July 30: Kansas City, Missouri - Arrowhead Stadium (on sale December 4)
Saturday, August 20: Detroit, Michigan - Ford Field (on sale December 4)
Saturday, August 27: Foxboro, Massachusetts - Gillette Stadium (on sale November 20)
