Country rocker Jason Aldean announced today that he will donate all proceeds from his Sept. 30th show in Roanoke, Va. to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as part of his 6th Annual Concert For The Cure. The concert on the eve of breast cancer awareness month will take place at the Roanoke Civic Center. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Aug. 26 at www.HomeTownBankTix.com or www.livenation.com, and those who are not able to attend can make a donation at www.jasonaldean.com.
“Breast cancer is something that’s affected me, my family and just about everyone I know,” said Aldean. “Last year, we took the benefit on the road and raised a lot of money in Evansville, Ind. It was such an incredible night! I love looking out and seeing all the pink tshirts in the crowd…it’s amazing what we can do and how much money we can raise when we all come together for this cause.”
The benefit concert is part of Aldean’s MY KINDA PARTY TOUR, which continues to crisscross the country selling out the nation’s biggest amphitheaters with openers Chris Young and Thompson Square. Aldean recently scored his seventh No. one hit “Dirt Road Anthem” off his third consecutive PLATINUM release and Country’s best-selling album of 2011, MY KINDA PARTY.
