Jason Aldean to perform back-to-back nights at Mohegan Sun

2 November 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all time, Jason Aldean, will launch his WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR on January 15th following a monumental run that sold over two million tickets and hosted capacity crowds at the nation’s biggest stadiums, amphitheaters and arenas. Mohegan Sun Arena welcomes Aldean for two concerts, on Friday, April 29th and Saturday, April 30th, both beginning at 7:30pm featuring A Thousand Horses. Additionally, next spring Aldean will make his first-ever trip to Australia where he’ll also play a string of headlining tour dates.

Tickets are $99.00 and $79.00 and go on sale Friday, November 6th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.

Aldean is wrapping up his 2015 BURN IT DOWN TOUR, which has been praised by critics all year long as he “ushers in the era of the new Country star; he’s equal parts Rock star, sensitive balladeer and wild-eyed backroads guide” (Billboard). Capacity crowds and triumphant stadium shows have been a common denominator as fans “loved it from start to finish” (Toronto Sun) and were “burned by fiery guitar licks and Aldean’s brand of smoking hot Country” (Arizona Republic). Aldean has sold more than 10 million albums, with each release being certified platinum or better. His “most ambitious album to date” (Associated Press) OLD BOOTS NEW DIRT was the first Country album released and certified platinum in 2014 and has yielded three consecutive #1s marking Aldean’s 16th career chart-topper. It is currently nominated for “Album of the Year” at the approaching CMA Awards as well as “Favorite Country Album” at the upcoming AMA’s where he also nabbed a “Favorite Country Male Artist“ nod.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Also in 2013, Mohegan Sun won “Casino of The Year” in 2 categories at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
