Jason Aldean Sells Out Stadium Show + Red Rocks in Minutes
Jason Aldean's fans just gave him a Valentine's Day gift to remember. The country superstar sold out three more dates of his enormous 2014 Burn It Down Tour Friday morning (Feb. 14).
Fans bought up every available ticket to Aldean's upcoming July 18 performance at Cleveland Indians Progressive Field within minutes of them going on sale. On top of that, Aldean simultaneously sold out two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, where he’s scheduled to perform for the first time on Sept. 17 and 18.
The news comes one week to the day after Aldean sold out MLB’s Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio in just minutes. He will be the first country act to ever headline at the venue, following in the footsteps of Paul McCartney, who is the only other musical act ever to perform there.
The tour will kick off May 1 in Roanoke, Va., and will visit 45 cities, with Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr also on the bill. The trek is slated to include five baseball stadium, and Miranda Lambert will join in as a special guest on stadium shows in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.
Aldean partnered with Major League Baseball for the tour, which represents the fulfillment of a childhood dream for the singer.
“It’s no secret that I grew up dreaming of playing baseball stadiums,” he says in a press release. “I thought it would be as a first baseman, but playing them as a musician is just as sweet! We’re going to crank this thing up to 11, bring along our buddies Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr and put on the biggest and best show we can. My goal is that when the last song is over, and you’re walking back to the parking lot, you’re already on your phone searching to find the next show.”
