Adding to the streak of record-shattering attendance numbers, headliner Jason Aldean lit-up MetLife Stadium Saturday night (8/15) with a capacity crowd of over 58,000 fans. Billboard boasted, “Jason Aldean was the one who really brought the crowd to life…more than anyone else, Aldean ushers in the era of the new country star; he’s equal parts rock star, sensitive balladeer and wild-eyed backroads guide. He commands a stadium like he was born to do it.”

With more than two million tickets sold to his headlining BURN IT DOWN TOUR, Aldean will next blaze through Indianapolis, IN (8/21), St. Louis, MO (8/22) and Cincinnati, OH (8/23) this weekend before two sold out nights at Boston’s Gillette Stadium (8/28, 29).

RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean celebrated the success of his recent three consecutive No. One hits, “Burnin’ It Down,” “Just Gettin’ Started” and “Tonight Looks Good On You,” off of his PLATINUM record OLD BOOTS, NEW DIRT yesterday (8/11).  Friends and family packed Nashville’s City Winery for a progressive party, which moved throughout the venue to celebrate each song.

First, Aldean was joined by fellow country superstars Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and their co-writers Chris Tompkins (ASCAP) and Rodney Clawson (BMI) to celebrate the PLATINUM album’s lead single “Burnin’ It Down.”

Next up, the party moved to City Winery’s main dining room where the three-time and reigning ACM “Male Vocalist of the Year” was recognized for the chart-topper “Just Gettin’ Started,” with songwriters Chris DeStefano (ASCAP), Ashley Gorley (ASCAP) and BMI’s Rhett Akins.

Closing out the evening in the upstairs loft, Aldean, BMI’s Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson, along with ASCAP’s Ashley Gorley were each awarded for the chart-topping success of “Tonight Looks Good On You.” The hit serves as Jason’s 16th career No. One single.

Following the recent celebration, Jason Aldean will continue to blaze through the Northeast this week with his BURN IT DOWN TOUR, which just surpassed two million in ticket sales. Upcoming tour stops include Darien Center, NY (8/13), the inaugural Delaware Junction in Harrington, DE (8/14) and MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ (8/15).

Jason Aldean Burns Through 2 Million Tickets

Jason aldean

With other 54,000 fans in attendance at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, CO this weekend, Jason Aldean’s BURN IT DOWN TOUR has officially surpassed two million in ticket sales. Capacity crowds and triumphant stadium shows have been a common denominator for RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time.  Far from over, “the ideal country star” (Orlando Sentinel) has also already sold out upcoming stops at MetLife Stadium (8/15) and two nights at Boston’s Gillette Stadium (8/28, 8/29).

“I’ll always be surprised to look up and see that many people…the Aldean Army is rocking harder than ever,” said Aldean. “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 uptempo 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.”

Dubbed by People as “the ultimate concert,” the record-breaking BURN IT DOWN TOUR continues through October with a special 10th Annual “Concert For The Cure” scheduled at his West Palm Beach tour date (10/24). Like years past, ACM’s three-time and reigning “Male Vocalist of the Year” has set aside a portion of ticket sales throughout the year, which will be donated to Susan G. Komen South Florida to support the West Palm Beach Area. New this year, Aldean has also been honoring two brave survivors at tour stops nominated through fan submissions.
