The Big Revival and the Burn It Down Tour Come Together for an Unforgettable Summer Stadium Run
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (Oct. 27, 2014) – Anticipation for the summer of 2015 just hit record highs as Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney have announced that their tours will collide for 10 stadium shows next summer, with the duo taking the stage at MetLife Stadium on August 15, 2015. More on-sale information and special guests will be revealed over the coming weeks.
“We’ve played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock,” Chesney says. “There aren’t a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I’m glad we’re able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!”
“Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workin’ hard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums,” added Aldean. “When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he’s the guy I would call or text for advice. We have a real friendship. Don’t get me wrong…that doesn’t mean I’m going to make it easy to follow me every night…he’s gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before!”
The Aldean Army and Chesney’s No Shoes Nation are both known for their ability to work hard and play harder. With a strong commitment to living in the moment, these shows are destined to be a once-in-lifetime pairing – and everything summer, friends and music are meant to embrace.
Chesney, whose The Big Revival marked his 13th No. 1 Country Album debut, already topped the Billboard Country Songs chart for two weeks with “American Kids” -- and “Til It’s Gone,” the follow-up, was at No. 18 with a bullet on release date.
Jason Aldean, whose Old Boots, New Dirt debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album charts earlier this month, is known for his high-intensity shows, his sense of true grit and songs that capture the way his fans genuinely live their lives. The most downloaded male country artist in history and two-time Academy of Country Music Male Vocalist of the Year is also currently sitting at the No. 1 spot on country radio charts with lead single “Burnin’ It Down.”
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw’s August 2012 'Brothers of the Sun' show at MetLife Stadium set the record as the largest ticketed country event in NYC/NJ history, with 56,285 tickets sold. The concert broke the record Chesney set in 2011, with his sold-out 'Goin' Coastal' date.
