Aldean sells out first stadium show
Wednesday, June 6, 2012
– Jason Aldean sold out his first stadium show for the 2012 My Kinda Party's Aug. 5 date at Columbus, Ohio's Crew Stadium.
With more than 27,000 tickets sold, it will be the largest concert in Crew Stadium history and the first time a show there has sold out more than two months in advance.
"We are just starting to test the waters with stadiums, and this soccer stadium in Columbus is our first run at it," said Aldean. "I am hopeful and excited that we'll be able to do some more of these later in the year or in 2013. Columbus, OH...hope you're ready to throw down with us on Aug. 5."
Aldean became the first male country artist to earn triple Platinum certification for a single with Dirt Road Anthem, one of five consecutive number one releases off "My Kinda Party."
