CMT’s “Concert of the Summer” Takes Fans Backstage at Jason Aldeans’s Six String Circus Tour

Jason Aldean

From the masterminds behind the ground-breaking music series “Crossroads” and the inventive “CMT Music Awards,” the first award show that turned the power over to the fans to choose the winners, comes the first-ever “CMT Concert of the Summer,” an immersive documentation that will bring fans directly into the summer’s biggest concert event, Jason Aldean’s SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR, through their screen of choice.

The colossal two-hour music extravaganza premiering this summer features ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean along with superstars Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses, as well as surprise guests as they take the stage at Live Nation’s Country LakeShakein Chicago, Illinois.

The inaugural event aims to amplify the concert going experience with exclusive on-the-scene and behind-the-scenes access including capturing artists pre-show rituals, the adrenaline fueled moment as they anxiously await to take the stage, as well as post-show thoughts from the unique POV of both the artists and the fans. Each year, CMT will proclaim one festival or event as the year’s concert of the summer and then bring it to life across all screens (television, online and social).

“It’s always cool when you’re approached about new ways to get music to your fans,” said Aldean. “So when CMT asked about coming out to LakeShake, I was immediately into it. We’re going to slap an all-access pass on them for the day and play until they pull the plug.”

“Summer festivals live large in the culture. Fans from all walks of life make pilgrimages to celebrate the power of music,” said Brian Philips, President of CMT. “With our Concert of the Summer event, we are going to capture the definitive documentary and companion programming for this big show. We’re counting on powerhouses Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses to rock the masses. Viewers will experience the party through the eyes of both artists and fans.”

“CMT Concert of the Summer” joins the impressive ranks of existing CMT music series and events including “2016 CMT Music Awards,” premiering June 8 at 8 PM ET/PT, “2016 CMT Artist of the Year,” “CMT Crossroads,” “Hot 20 Countdown” and more.

Due to overwhelming demand, this year’s ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean and multi-Platinum award winner Kid Rock have announced a second stop at Boston’s Fenway Park, scheduled for Sept 10th.

Tickets for the new date will be available this Friday, May 13th at 10:00A ET on JasonAldean.com and LiveNation.com.

As the first country artist to play the iconic Fenway Park and after previously smashing attendance records set by Paul McCartney and the Dave Matthews Band, the ACM Triple Crown winner who is known to “routinely fill stadiums” (Las Vegas Sun) recently released his fan-fueled single “Lights Come On” as the lead track from his upcoming seventh studio album.

Kid Rock spent last summer on the road promoting his most recent album “First Kiss.” Keeping tickets to $20 yet again, he set multiple attendance records across amphitheaters selling over 600,000 tickets over just three months of dates. Hard at work on new material, Kid Rock is playing only select shows this year and is excited to add Fenway Park shows to his belt buckle.

Emotions were running high seeing all those faces familiar faces come out to support.”
