KENNY CHESNEY AND TIM MCGRAW REHEARSING FOR THE "BROTHERS OF THE SUN" TOUR, COMING TO FEDEXFIELD ON AUGUST 12

With the drumbeat to summer growing louder, rehearsals for the hottest tour of the summer are in full swing. The 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour, with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, hit the next level of production yesterday when Chesney and McGraw met for their first on-stage, joint rehearsal.

"Yesterday's rehearsal with Tim and I and our bands was as electric and exciting as we anticipated," said Chesney, the man with nine summers of playing to crowds of more than one million a year. "It's been a long time since we've played on stage together and the chemistry and excitement is just so natural. It's going to be a dream come true to have our years of friendship come together on stage for what will be one unpredictable, loud, hell of a summer, and I can't wait," Chesney continued.

The three-plus hour working rehearsal found the friends working out songs for the tour, which kicks off June 2 in more than 20 stadiums across the nation including FedExField - home of the Washington Redskins - on August 12th.  The tour is set to be the musical event of 2012.

This weekend's Amazing Race 2012 charity event in New Orleans with Drew Brees and Matthew McConaughey marks Chesney and his band's first public performance since the debut of "Feel Like a Rock Star" at the ACM Awards.

Chesney's 13th studio album, 'Welcome To The Fishbowl,' will be available on June 19 (BNA Records) and the first single, "Feel Like A Rock Star," with tour-mate Tim McGraw, debuted in early April and has quickly climbed the charts.

Great seats are also still available for this show, which will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 12th at FedExField.
