Nashville, TN – Feb. 21, 2013 – ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean is gearing up for his biggest tour to date, and one of the most anticipated of this year, as 19 buses and trucks and over 100 band and crewmembers roll into Bossier City, LA tonight for the first show of the 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR's sold out run. Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett are set to open the tour that has already sold over 350,000 tickets for the first dates. “We’ve been down in Tupelo, MS the last week or so getting ready,” said Aldean. “It's like Christmas with all the new toys we've got on stage…I don’t even understand how my crew makes all this happen night after night, but it’s awesome. I'm pumped about the new songs we've added to the set, and everything just feels fresh and exciting. I wasn't sure how we would top the My Kinda Party tour, but I feel pretty certain we've done it." The all-new production includes 1750 square feet of high-resolution video panels and will take more than 130 crewmembers to set up each day. Fans can expect to hear new songs off his recently released Platinum album NIGHT TRAIN, including brand new single “1994,” “The Only Way I Know,” “Night Train,” and “When She Says Baby." Aldean announced this week that the third single off his PLATINUM album NIGHT TRAIN is the fun dose of nostalgia “1994.” He will debut “1994” this Tues. on TODAY (2/26) and on Wed. on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (2/27). While in NYC, he'll also perform at the All for the Hall New York show in the Best Buy Theatre where he will join Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and more in raising money for the Country Music Hall of Fame and at his first-ever show in Madison Square Garden, which sold out a few weeks ago in less than 10 minutes. The 2013 NIGHT TRAIN tour also includes sold out stadium shows at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium (4/13), two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park (7/12 and 7/13) and Chicago’s Wrigley Field (7/20).
