Jason Aldean Breaks Record at Fenway Park
Jason Aldean made history over the weekend. The country music superstar played two sold-out shows at Boston's Fenway Park as part of his Night Train tour, which marked the first time a country artist ever played in the famed venue. He admits they were two nights he will never forget.
"Boston is my kinda town," Aldean said after the opening night. "There were fans in the streets partying all day, so they were ready when we hit the stage, and they just never let up … so neither did we! This was a huge night in my career and I think a big night for country music fans too…we were able to write some new history together here in Boston tonight."
Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett joined the Georgia native for both nights. The first concert sold out in seven minutes, which prompted Aldean to add a second night in the 37,000 seat arena. The second show sold out in 45 minutes. Aldean broke attendance records previously held by Paul McCartney and the Dave Matthews Band.
Aldean will continue his Night Train tour, which has sold-out every show so far this year, with a show at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Saturday, July 20. See a list of all of his upcoming concerts here.
