JASON ALDEAN TO HOST CAPACITY CROWD AS FIRST-EVER HEADLINER
TO SELL OUT CMC ROCKS QLD COUNTRY FESTIVAL
ACM "Entertainer of the Year” Nominee Sets The Tone For International Shows
in Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland, AUS
NASHVILLE, TN - Feb. 10, 2016 - ACM “Entertainer of the Year” nominee Jason Aldean catapults his career internationally as the first headliner to ever sellout CMC Rocks QLD Country Music Festival. Fans snagged every ticket to the festival which has featured past headliners, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw. Before taking the stage, Aldean will bring one of "2016’s Hottest Tours” (Rolling Stone) to Melbourne, AU (3/8) and Sydney, AU (3/9).
"I have been looking forward to heading down under to play, but to hear it's already sold out without ever stepping foot in Australia is really cool," shares Aldean. "The boys and I kicked it off really early this year stateside and I am ready to bring it to the fans who I hear have been waiting."
Three-time reigning ACM “Male Vocalist of the Year" continues with his “high-octane” (The Oklahoman) show with stops next weekend, in Roanoke, VA (2/18), Charlottesville, VA (2/19) and Fayetteville, NC (2/20). Additionally, Aldean will continue his partnership with Susan G. Komen for his 2016 WE WERE HERE TOUR, offering fans a special opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors. On select dates over the course of the tour, Aldean will surprise survivors nominated through essay submissions with concert tickets and VIP backstage access to the concert of their choice.
