Kenny in 3D?

From the KC fan folks:
While there has been a great deal of internet speculation about filming at Kenny Chesney's Philadelphia stadium show at Lincoln Financial Field, there is nothing concrete to report. Long time fans of the 4-time consecutive Academy of Country Music and 4-time and current Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year are aware that Chesney has been documenting his concerts, recording sessions and tour life for years - and the filming in Philadelphia is an extension of that.
“These are the moments you're often so busy living, they blur,” Chesney says. “I've been shooting everything since I started headlining shows - and to me, you never know what you're gonna do with it, how you might string it together.
“A lot of the fans have been part of our videos, the 'Roadcase' DVDs we've done… our year-end video, which is just for all of us out here on the road… and when we decided to do something a little different, because we've never shot in 3-D before, I wanted to make sure we'd be able to use it. Could it be a movie? A DVD? Sure…
It was a magic night. You never know. But you can't go find all those people to get their permission after the fact, so we decided to be safe… whatever it was.”
Chesney's No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems and Guitars, Tiki Bars & A Whole Lotta Love Tours did in fact become “Roadcase” DVDs, which document the life of the tour. “Living In Fast Forward,” “Summertime” and much of the video footage shown behind Chesney in concert is captured on the road as well.
“It's pretty magical… a lot of what happens… Rather than talk about it, we capture it. I'm just surprised to see so much interest and Internet interest in something that - other than the medium - is pretty typical of what we've been doing out here for years.”
