UNCASVILLE, CT (January 13, 2017) – RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all time Jason Aldean makes plans to return to the road as he announces today details for his They Don’t Know Tour kicking off in April. Named after the only Country album to claim the top spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in 2016 that’s “packed with stadium-size songs and arena-ready hooks” (The Boston Globe), the multi-platinum entertainer is sure to bring that same energy to the stage while boasting support from special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver. The tour will be live at Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, May 19th & Saturday, May 20th. Both shows will begin at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $99.00 and $79.00 and go on sale Friday, January 20th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Saturday, January 21st, subject to availability.
In addition to the new tour, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced today that a special exhibit honoring Aldean will open its doors on May 27th, commemorating his wide-open sound that has been one of the defining influences on today’s Country music. “Country music’s hard-rocking everyman” is “the mirror image of his fans” (Rolling Stone) as his recent album They Don’t Know follows on the heels of each album release earning platinum certification or better, tallying more than 14 million total album sales and 18 #1 hits. The longevity of his career reached new heights as he debuted at the #1 position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart for the third consecutive time with his seventh studio album, which has already produced two consecutive chart-toppers. The ACM “Entertainer of the Year” incorporates his traditional roots into his nostalgic single “Any Ol’ Barstool,” as it serves as “a throwback to the early music that helped catapult Aldean into the spotlight more than a decade ago” (Forbes).
