Thursday, February 21, 2013
– Jason Aldean rolled in Bossier City, La. toay with 19 buses and trucks and more than 100 band and crew members roll for the first show of the 2013 Night Train Tour's sold out run. Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett are set to open the tour that has already sold more than 350,000 tickets for the first dates.
"We've been down in Tupelo, Miss. the last week or so getting ready," said Aldean. "It's like Christmas with all the new toys we've got on stage...I don't even understand how my crew makes all this happen night after night, but it's awesome. I'm pumped about the new songs we've added to the set, and everything just feels fresh and exciting. I wasn't sure how we would top the My Kinda Party tour, but I feel pretty certain we've done it."
Among the songs Aldean will play from his new disc are 1994, The Only Way I Know, Night Train and When She Says Baby.
Aldean announced this week that the third single off "Night Train" is 1994. He will debut the song on Tuesday on Today and on Wednesday on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
