Aldean ends shows with Concert for the Cure, raises $615K
Monday, October 26, 2015
– Jason Aldean wrapped his 2015 Burn It Down Tour in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Saturday with his 10th Annual "Concert for the Cure," where Aldean presented more than $615,000 to Susan G. Komen South Florida, which was raised from a portion of ticket sales over the course of the tour.
"I know first-hand how important it is to find a cure for breast cancer," said Aldean. "So, looking out from stage Saturday night at a sea of pink was a pretty cool way to end the tour. For 10 years now, the fans have been helping us support Komen, and I know we're going to keep it up until nobody has to fight the disease anymore."
During his tour, Aldean became the first country headliner at the Rose Bowl and broke attendance records at AT&T Stadium, Lambeau Field, Target Field, MetLife Stadium and Arrowhead Stadium.
Aldean will launch his 24-city We Were Here 2016 Tour on Jan. 15, with special guests Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses before making his first-ever trip to Australia where he'll also play a string of headlining dates. Aldean's latest Top 10 single "Gonna Know We Were Here."

If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse ...
Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little ...
