Concert Tour Goes On For Injured Chesney
LATEST: Country star KENNY CHESNEY has been given the go-ahead to continue his concert tour - despite injuring his foot onstage in South Carolina on Saturday night (26Apr08).
Chesney hurt his foot on machinery lifting him up onto the stage, but the brave singer freed his stuck limb and carried on performing.
And now the All I Need To Know star has been given the all-clear by medics who say he is well enough to carry on his Poets + Pirates tour.
He tells People.com, "Dr. Elrod got that the last thing I want to do is cancel shows, but also that I don't want any kind of lasting damage... because being able to hit that stage and really rock the fans is important to me.
"He told me it's going to hurt - though nothing could hurt worse than Saturday I don't think - and they can give me something to deaden the pain when I get out there."
Chesney's tour resumes on 1 May (08) in Austin, Texas.
