Jason Aldean Burnin’ It Down With 2 Million in Ticket Sales
Jason Aldean played for more than 54,000 fans at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colo., over the weekend, marking the two-millionth ticket sale for his Burn it Down tour.
"I'll always be surprised to look up and see that many people … the Aldean Army is rocking harder than ever," Aldean says in a press release. "But the thing that really kills me is when I look up and see their faces and see how much these songs really mean to them. They are partying harder than anyone during the up-tempo stuff and then when I think they may want to slow things down and catch their breath on the ballads, they are belting the words with so much passion … 300 pound dudes are crying and hugging each other. Having that kind of effect on a stadium full of people is something I will never ever get used to."
The two-legged tour started its trek in May of 2014 with a variety of openers, including Florida Georgia Line, Tyler Farr and Cole Swindell. Along the way Aldean has also played stadiums with country superstars Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and Kenny Chesney.
Capacity crowds and stadium shows have been a common denominator for the "Tonight Looks Good on You" singer, and there is no sign of slowing down. He has an upcoming sold out stop at MetLife Stadium (Aug. 15) and two nights at Boston’s Gillette Stadium (Aug. 28, 29) with Chesney, the last stops on the Burn it Down tour.
“Gonna Know We Were Here” is the latest single from Aldean's 2014 platinum album Old Boots, New Dirt. The Georgia native has teased us with hints of new music coming our way, but no dates have been revealed.
