ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean broke venue attendance records at New York metro area’s IZOD Center and Charlottesville, VA’s John Paul Jones Arena this weekend, marking his 13th venue attendance record set in 2012. Aldean’s 2012 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR has sold out all 18 shows so far this year, including Rodeo Houston at Reliant Stadium where he set the all-time record with 74,901 fans and the IZOD Center where he set a new record for a Country concert with more than 19,000 fans, breaking Shania Twain’s previous record of 15,749 in 2003.
This year’s production was upped to a 360-degree configuration to give more fans the opportunity to purchase tickets. Fellow Georgia natives Luke Bryan and Lauren Alaina have both been serving as opener for Aldean this year, with DeeJay Silver returning to the tour to keep the party going between sets.
“These last few months on the road have been unbelievable, and the crowds this weekend were killer,” said Aldean. “We are off to Vegas next for the ACMs and will hopefully have a little luck on and off the blackjack tables!”
Additionally, Aldean is nominated for six ACM Awards, including his second consecutive nods for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. Fans can vote in the Entertainer of the Year category on www.VoteACM.com through show day. The April 1 show will air live from Las Vegas on CBS.
Aldean’s current single “Fly Over States” is climbing up the Top 15 at country radio and comes on the heels of four consecutive No. one singles off the top-selling country album of 2011 and reigning CMA Album of the Year MY KINDA PARTY.
