CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean has picked his Oct. 27 show at Dallas, TX’s Gexa Energy Pavilion as the site of his seventh annual “Concert for The Cure,” benefitting the local Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The final date of the 2012 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR presented by State Farm®, the show sold out this summer with over 20,000 tickets purchased in just four minutes.
“This is one of the nights I look forward to most every year,” said Aldean. “I’m really proud of the money we’ve raised so far, and it feels great to be able to honor our friend who passed away at such an early age from breast cancer. Everyone has been affected by this disease at some point, and I want to do my part to help find a cure before my daughters grow up. I know Dallas is ready to help us!”
Aldean’s current single, and the lead track from his Oct. 16 release NIGHT TRAIN, “Take A Little Ride” is his fastest rising single to date and is currently plowing through the Top five. Fans can pre-order the album now at digital retailers and www.JasonAldean.com. Aldean recently earned three Country Music Association Awards nominations for the Nov. 1 show, in the categories of Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year for “Dirt Road Anthem.” Additionally, Aldean has sold out every show on his MY KINDA PARTY TOUR presented by State Farm®, – often in minutes at the day of on sale – and has broken over 40 venue attendance records. The tour has gone on to sell an unparalleled 1.9 million tickets.
