Tuesday was the release of Jason Aldean‘s newest album, “Night Train,” and he certainly shot out of the station at high speed. Today, Jason made major surprise announcement when he shared the news of stadium dates planned for his 2013 Night Train Tour.
Jason kicked off the day at Boston’s Fenway Park to announce his July 13, 2013 date, making history as the first country artist to ever play within the confines of the Green Monstah. Then, he traveled to Chicago’s Wrigley Field this afternoon and announced a July 20 tour stop. The lifelong Georgia Bulldogs fan ended the day in Athens, Georgia by surprising a crowd of UGA students who thought they were attending a pep rally. When the curtain dropped, Jason appeared to reveal that he will hold the first ever concert at Sanford Stadium on April 13, 2013. He followed the surprise with a special performance for fans.
“It takes a lot to make me nervous, but walking out of the dugout at Fenway this morning to announce our show there definitely did it,” said Jason. “It’s the kind of moment you dream about your whole career, so I tried to take a minute to soak it up, but it’s pretty overwhelming. It was an incredible day as we went on to Wrigley for that announcement and then finished it up tonight with a surprise performance for the fans at University of Georgia. It’s a day that I’m never going to forget.”
Another aspect of Jason’s stadium tour is that he isn’t taking that ride on the Night Train alone. He solicited the help of a few friends — you may have heard of them: Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen, Thomas Rhett, and Luke Bryan have been announced so far, but who knows where else this Night Train might lead and who will jump on board?
