Jason Is Tickled Pink About Tour-Closing Show for Charity
Jason Aldean has lots to be tickled pink about these days.
First, his new album, Night Train, debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. And it was announced today that his July 13 show at Boston's Fenway Park sold out in all of seven minutes.
But before embarking on the upcoming Night Train Tour—which will play Fenway, Chicago's Wrigley Field and Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga.—Jason will close out the incredibly successful My Kinda Party Tour on Saturday (Oct. 27) in Dallas, a show that will double as his annual Concert for the Cure fundraiser for battling breast cancer.
"The show is always a lot of fun," he told reporters recently. "When people think about breast cancer, I mean, obviously it's a terrible disease, but that show that we do is as much about celebrating the people that have beat the disease as much as it is about remembering people that have lost their battle with it.
"So, it's not one of those nights that's all everybody's sad. It's a fun night, and we do a lot of cool stuff."
And Jason—like NFL players every October—will wear pink, the color for breast cancer awareness.
"That should be fun around Texas, a bunch of cowboys giving me a hard time," he joked.
