Jason Aldean Sells Out Fenway Park in Just Seven Minutes
When you hear of country artists selling out stadiums and arenas in record time, it is usually a short list of names you hear repeatedly: Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and Garth Brooks, for the most part. Now, you can add Jason Aldean to that illustrious list.
Aldean recently announced a concert — which isn’t until July 13, 2013 — at Boston’s iconic Fenway Park. Tickets went on sale Friday (Oct. 26), and the concert has already sold out. In fact, it sold out in just 7 minutes! Keep in mind that Fenway Park seats over 37,000 people. In addition to Aldean, the show will feature performances from Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
“When we started talking about playing stadiums, my only request was to play venues that were special and really meant something to me,” Aldean said in a statement. “At 100 years old, Fenway Park is one of the most iconic baseball stadium in the country and there is absolutely nothing in the world that could be more special than selling that place out…as an entertainer and as a huge baseball fan. This has been the most unbelievable week… all I can say is THANK YOU.”
This news tops an already incredible week for Aldean, whose latest album, ‘Night Train,’ debuted atop the all-genre Billboard 200 albums charts after its mid-October release.
