Chesney Considers Pulling Keg In The Closet Shows

Country star KENNY CHESNEY is considering putting an end to his impromptu college bar shows after discovering fans are learning about the low-key gigs and turning them into big events. Chesney's informal Keg In The Closet shows are set up to help the singer and his band rehearse for arena tours. But after learning that news of a tentative show near the University Of Alabama in Tuscaloosa has been publicised by over-eager fans, the country star is thinking about axing the pre-tour gigs. The shows are announced at the last minute to allow college students to attend. Chesney says, "The idea is to let it be a surprise, give it back to the kids on those campuses (we play). "We pulled a show because someone decided they were gonna hand out the tickets, and if it's gonna turn into something that's not the spirit of what we're trying to do, then it's probably time to stop."
