Superstar announces 34-city trek with support from Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina.
Jason Aldean has announced his new summer tour. Named for a song on Aldean’s forthcoming album, the High Noon Neon Tour opens with a May 10th show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and heads on to arenas and amphitheaters, including Madison Square Garden and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, before wrapping up September 29th in California.
Notably absent from the itinerary are some of the famed stadiums Aldean has played in the past, including Boston’s Fenway Park and Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, though he does have a July 21st show at SunTrust Park, home to the Atlanta Braves. Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina, both of whom are coming off major breakthroughs in 2017, will support.
The High Noon Tour will be Aldean’s first major trek since he wrapped up his 2017 touring season on October 28th, less than a month after his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas was interrupted by a gunman’s deadly attack. Shortly after the incident, Aldean made a triumphant, defiant return to the stage in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and delivered one of the most emotional performances of his career.
The Georgia native’s most recent single was “They Don’t Know,” a Number Three-charting hit that served as the title track on his seventh full-length album. There’s no official word on when the follow-up LP will appear, but Aldean has consistently released his albums every other fall since 2010’s My Kinda Party. They Don’t Know made its debut in September 2016.
