Aldean announces 50-date tour

NEW YORK – Jason Aldean is heading to the centerfield.

The country star is partnering with Major League Baseball to launch a 50-date tour this spring that will include stops at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. The “Burn It Down Tour” will kick off May 1 in Roanoke, Va.

“For me, it doesn’t seem like that long ago we were playing little clubs,” the 36-year-old said in an interview Thursday at the MLB offices in New York City. “So, to go from playing small bars and clubs that weren’t even sold out to now going in and selling out these stadiums … to me, it’s pretty overwhelming sometimes, but I love it.”

Aldean, who will also play arenas on the tour, will visit stadiums in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. More shows will be announced at a later date.
