Alan Jackson sells out third show Down Under

Friday, October 15, 2010 – Alan Jackson is selling out - in Australia. Tickets for Jackson's March 12, third show in Brisbane - added to Jackson's tour Down Under due to high ticket demand - sold out yesterday in Australia in 23 minutes.

Jackson's previous four sell-outs - Melbourne's March 4 date, Sydney's March 7 and the first two Brisbane dates, March 10 and 11, happened in under an hour when they went on sale last Friday.

Beckham, Jackson's responsible agent at WME, said, "Country music fans here in the U.S. have long known what an incredible experience an Alan Jackson concert is - it doesn't surprise me at all that Australian fans would respond with the same enthusiasm and excitement."

"Alan Jackson has proven - again - the magnitude of his career. He is a country music icon, and his Australian fans have proven that they crave to see all those hits in person," said Rob Potts, CEO of Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and co-promoter of the tour. "This tour has been in the works for years - we're delighted that we can finally make it happen. I am just grateful Alan wants to see another part of the South - the South continent, that is."

Special guests on tour with Jackson in Australia will be country artists Miranda Lambert and Australia's own - and recent Nashville resident - Jasmine Rae.

Jackson's "Freight Train" tour, with special guests Chris Young and The Band Perry, continues in the U.S. in November; dates include Sacramento (Nov. 4), Los Angeles (Nov. 5) and Las Vegas (Nov. 6).

CD review - Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story Tim O'Brien "Pompadour" Howdy Skies Records Reviewed by Donald Teplyske It is difficult to tally exactly how many albums of new material Tim O'Brien has released since first appearing as part of Hot Rize, the venerable bluegrass band experiencing a well-received resurgence. More than 20 by any count, 30-plus when one considers solo, duet and group offerings, including his most recent success as part of the Earls of Leicester. Aside from a brief flirtation with the ...
CD review - Angels and Alcohol Alan Jackson, circa 2015, now might be, unfortunately, considered a retro artist. Jackson, thankfully, does not veer from his traditional country beat on his first new studio disc in three years. It's the traditional sound that makes him a throwback today. In an age of rock and rap meshing with country, Jackson will have none of that on this meat-and-potatoes rendering. Jackson's viewpoint has always been about the simple truths of life. He makes that clear in the leadoff track, ...
CD review - The Bluegrass Album Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album." The traditional country singer has "gone bluegrass," although the idea of a bluegrass disc should not come off as all that far fetched. Yes, there's no pedal steel here, but the sounds, subject and voice are not very different from a typical AJ disc. And this is not the first time that Jackson has veered off the straight and narrow path as his gospel albums indicated. ...
