Hootie & the Blowfish Reuniting for Jason Aldean’s Atlanta Concert
Jason Aldean is hitting the road for a series of stadium dates, and he'll be playing a very special date in Atlanta.
Aldean is set to embark on his High Noon Neon Tour in March, and the trek includes a very special date at Suntrust Park in Atlanta, Ga., on July 21.
Aldean was joined by President of Live Nation Country Touring Brian O’Connell, legendary baseball player Chipper Jones and tour opener Lauren Alaina during a press conference on Wednesday (March 14) along with his other opening act, Luke Combs.Three-time Grammy award winner Darius Rucker also joined Aldean to announce that Hootie & the Blowfish will reunite for one night only to open the show.
“Out of all the shows we’ve played, I know this show is going to be a career-defining moment,” Aldean said during a press conference on Wednesday. “We haven’t had a chance to play Atlanta in a couple years in anticipation of this show and I know this night is going to mean a lot to my family and me. I’ve followed the Braves my whole life….was even at the ’95 game when they clinched the World Series…so this is a huge full circle moment for me."
“Last spring we were brainstorming what could happen this year to spice up Jason’s touring routine, and the top thing on his mind was to play the home of the Atlanta Braves,” O’Connell adds. “It's important to understand Jason’s history with Georgia not only as an entertainer but as a person who wants to honor his roots. He is the only country music artist to play UGA’s Sanford Stadium and now SunTrust Park and I know it’s going to be the show of the summer in Atlanta."
Tickets for Aldean's Atlanta show will be available next Friday, March 23 at 10AM ET at JasonAldean.com and LiveNation.com.
