Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean Are Coming to New Jersey Together
Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean are merging their tours next summer for 10 big stadium shows, including one in New Jersey.
Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford will be one of the site of the merged "Big Tent Revival" and "Burn It Down" Tours. The date of the concert is August 15th. Full schedules and opening acts for each individual tour have yet to be announced.
The East Rutherford show will be the closest merged tour to South Jersey. Other venues are in San Francisco, Dallas, Green Bay, Seattle, Minneapolis, Pasadena, Kansas City, Denver, and Boston.
"We've played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock," Chesney says. "There aren't a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I'm glad we're able to bring both of our tours together for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!"
"Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workin' hard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums," added Aldean. "When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he's the guy I would call or text for advice. We have a real friendship. Don't get me wrong...that doesn't mean I'm going to make it easy to follow me every night...he's gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before!"
