The team that has won six Super Bowls has given special recognition to a man who has sold out the team’s home stadium for six separate events that didn’t involve a football game.
The Rooney family has given Kenny Chesney a “Six for Six” plaque commemorating his sixth sold out show at Heinz Field. He also received a helmet signed by Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris.
In all, Chesney has sold more than 300,000 tickets to the venue since his first show there, in 2005.
“I believe this might be the best gift I’ve ever gotten on the road,” Chesney said. “It epitomizes all the heart and energy and passion that this crowd has, that this town has.”
On Saturday night, Chesney appeared at Heinz Field with Tim McGraw, as part of their “Brothers of the Sun” tour. Backstage guests included Ben Roethlisberger (pictured with Chesney), Dan Marino, and Jim Kelly.
