Well here's a bit of completely surprising (just shocking I'm telling you) news – Jason Aldean has teamed up with the MLB for his 2014 Burn It Down Tour.
Jason told "Good Morning America" this morning that he's planning about 50 tour stops and the tour will include Tyler Farr and Florida Georgia Line as openers.
Yeah, kind of like the "inaccurate" info I had yesterday.
You can watch Jason's announcement that he made on "Good Morning America" this morning here. In the meantime, check out Jason performing When She Says Baby below.
I will update this post once all the info such as tour dates, etc. is announced.
Update: Full press release after the jump…
From New York City this morning, Multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean announced the details of his 2014 BURN IT DOWN TOUR that will kick off May 1 in Roanoke, VA and continue on to roughly 50 cities through the end of the year.
Red-hot duo Florida Georgia Line and breakthrough artist Tyler Farr are also on the bill. Aldean also revealed from MLB.com studios that the trek will hit baseball stadiums across the country, including Nationals Park (Washington, D.C.), Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, PA), PNC Park (Pittsburgh, PA) and Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati, OH). Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 24 for select cities as part of tour promoter Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com, and additional ticketing information will be available in the coming weeks at www.jasonaldean.com.
“It’s no secret that I grew up dreaming of playing baseball stadiums,” said Aldean. “I thought it would be as a first baseman, but playing them as a musician is just as sweet! We’re going to crank this thing up to 11, bring along our buddies Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr and put on the biggest and best show we can. My goal is that when the last song is over, and you’re walking back to the parking lot, you’re already on your phone searching to find the next show.”
In the wake of shattered attendance records and more than 1.5 million tickets sold on his last tour, Aldean’s 2014 BURN IT DOWN TOUR follows sellouts at some of the nation’s most legendary venues including University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium, Wrigley Field, a two-night stand at Fenway Park, Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl.
