Camped-Out Jason Aldean Fans Get a Surprise
"A lot of people think [camping out for tickets] is silly, but it's still fun and exciting," one fan says.
Yes, you can buy tickets to any concert using any computer these days.
But four Jason Aldean fans from Nashville decided to kick it old-school last Wednesday (March 14) and drive eight hours to Peoria, Ill., to buy tix to Jason's May 10 concert there.
"A lot of people think [camping out for tickets] is silly, but it's still fun and exciting," said Michael Haworth, one of the Nashville Four.
The story made its way into the local newspaper, and Jason's concert promoter saw it and showed it to the country star.
So Jason had the concert promoter deliver pizza to them. And this just wasn't any pizza. The promoter, Brian O'Connell, is from Peoria, so he went to a famous local place called Agatucci's, and he delivered pizza "complete with tiger sauce."
"We were stoked. We were happy to have the pizzas," Austin Wright, another member of the Nashville Four, told the local paper.
Happy ending: When the tix went on sale Friday morning (March 16), the pizza-fueled foursome snagged front-row seats.
