Jason Aldean Picks October Show in Dallas for Annual Concert for the Cure Event
Jason Aldean let the cat out of the bag Monday afternoon (Sept. 24) when announcing that his seventh annual Concert for the Cure event will happen when he performs in Dallas, Texas at the Gexa Energy Pavilion on Saturday, Oct. 27. Proceeds raised from the show will benefit the local Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Aldean first started the Concert for the Cure concept following the loss of a dear friend to breast cancer. The benefit show is one that Aldean looks forward to the most throughout the year.
"I'm really proud of the money we've raised so far, and it feels great to be able to honor our friend who passed away at such an early age from breast cancer," says Aldean. "Everyone has been affected by this disease at some point, and I want to do my part to help find a cure before my daughters grow up. I know Dallas is ready to help us!"
The performance will also mark the end to Aldean's 2012 portion of his My Kinda Party Tour, which has been selling out night after night. The show in Dallas was one of the fastest-selling venues when fans snatched up the 20,000 tickets in just four minutes. To date, the tour has broken over 40 venue attendance records and has sold an amazing 1.9 million tickets.
This week Aldean spends some time back at the top of the country singles chart. His current hit, 'Take a Little Ride,' is his sixth consecutive No. 1 single. The track is the first release from his forthcoming album, 'Night Train,' which will hit stores on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
