Jason Aldean Sells Out First-Ever Stadium Show, Sets New Record
It's going to be Jason Aldean's kinda party on Aug. 5 in Columbus, Ohio. The country superstar has made history, selling out his first-ever stadium show of 2012 on the My Kinda Party Tour at the Crew Stadium in Columbus.
Over 27,000 tickets have been sold already, making it the largest concert in the venue's history and the first time that a gig there has sold out more than two months in advance. Our hats go off to Aldean for making a little personal -- and Ohio -- history with his tour.
Graduating to playing in stadiums is a huge deal for an artist, and the fact that Aldean was able to sell out so quickly proves that he has successfully taken another step up in his already huge career. He is indeed stadium-ready.
In a statement, Aldean reacted by saying, "We are just starting to test the waters with stadiums, and this soccer stadium in Columbus is our first run at it. I am hopeful and excited that we’ll be able to do some more of these later in the year or in 2013. Columbus, OH…hope you’re ready to throw down with us on Aug. 5!"
You hear that, Columbus dwellers? It's going to be quite a party, hosted by one Jason Aldean, which is just what you'll need during the dog days of August.
In other good Aldean news, the singer has become the first male country artist to earn triple-platinum status for a single with 'Dirt Road Anthem,' one of five consecutive No. 1 singles from 'My Kinda Party,' which is double platinum in its own right.
Needless to say, Jason Aldean is doing just fine.
