Jason Aldean has confirmed that among his 2013 tour dates are three stadium shows, including a performance at Boston's Fenway Park on July 13th. Jason will be the first country act to headline a show there. The performance will also feature Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
Jason announced the news yesterday (Thursday, October 18th) morning at Fenway Park alongside Red Sox EVP/COO Sam Kennedy. He then traveled to Chicago's Wrigley Field in the afternoon and was joined by Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts to announce a July 20th tour stop there with special guests Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
Jason wrapped up the day in Athens, Georgia where he announced during what UGA fans thought was a pep rally that he will hold the first ever concert at Sanford Stadium on April 13th with special guests Luke Bryan, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett. He was welcomed by football head coach Mark Richt and followed the surprise with a special performance for fans.
Jason said, "It takes a lot to make me nervous, but walking out of the dugout at Fenway this morning to announce our show there definitely did it. It's the kind of moment you dream about your whole career, so I tried to take a minute to soak it up, but it's pretty overwhelming. It was an incredible day as we went on to Wrigley for that announcement and then finished it up tonight with a surprise performance for the fans at University of Georgia. It's a day that I'm never going to forget."
Tickets to the Fenway park show go on sale on October 25th at 10 a.m. ET; Wrigley Field on sale is November 3rd at 10 a.m. CT; and Sanford Stadium on sale is November 2nd at 10 a.m. ET.
Jason's fifth studio album, Night Train, was released on Tuesday (October 16th).
