Two limited capacity outdoor shows are May 14-15th
Jason Aldean will return to the live music scene for this first time in over a year with two nights of Jason Aldean: Live at The Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, TN on May 14th and May 15th. The three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” will host a limited number of fans in socially distanced four-person pods, starting at $99 a pod. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (April 9th) at 10 am CT at JasonAldean.com and BonnarooFarm.com, with $1 from each ticket benefiting the Bonnaroo Works Fund.
“You could’ve asked me to play a gas station at this point and I would say yes,” Aldean shares. “So being able to setup the full show with all the band guys plugged in is going to make for a really good time. We’re going to turn it up – there’s nobody out there to bother – and make up for some lost time for sure.”
Tickets will be sold in groups of four and will provide access to an 8’ x 8’ pod, with pods arranged to allow six feet of distance between groups. Fans are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to create their own comfortable space within their pod. Concessions and merchandise will be available on-site through mobile ordering. Masks will be required for all attendees when moving around the venue, but may be removed while inside their own reserved seating area. While camping is not available for this series, fans can find accommodations, places to eat and play at tnvacation.com.
Tonight (April 5th), fans can watch Aldean mentor and perform with two Top 24 contestants on ABC’s American Idol for their “All-Star Duets” episode (April 15th on ABC at 8 pm ET).
After almost 15 years at the top of his format, the three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” has seen trends come and go. Aldean’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul — most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified platinum, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold. Known as a member of country’s elite headliners, Aldean’s past tours are nearing legendary status as he is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell-out multiple stadiums including UGA’s Sanford Stadium, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.
Continuing success outside of the music industry, Aldean recently launched his latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak and spice.
