CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean made history last week when he announced he’d be the first country act to headline Boston’s Fenway Park. This week, he did it again when his Saturday, July 13 show became the fastest concert sell out in Fenway Park history.
“Since Jason’s surprise appearance at Fenway Park last week, the reaction over the show has been unprecedented,” says Dave Marsden, Senior Vice President of Booking for Live Nation. “So were ticket sales…this was the fastest sellout of all the shows Fenway Park has hosted.”
“We are thrilled that Jason Aldean has sold out his July 13th concert at Fenway Park,” says Red
Sox EVP/COO Sam Kennedy. “The excitement surrounding this show has reached a fever pitch and we look forward to welcoming Jason Aldean and the country music fans of New England to Fenway Park this summer.”
Aldean's fifth studio album NIGHT TRAIN steamrolled to a No. one debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart yesterday with 409,303 copies sold in its first week. This marks the second-highest debut in all genres of music this year and the highest in country since 2010. The total more than doubles the first week sales of Aldean's previous album, the Triple Platinum MY KINDA PARTY. 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."
Aldean’s 2013 Night Train Tour will arrive at Fenway Park on Saturday, July 13, 2013. The show will also feature special guests Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
