TULSA — Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean has been on a strong and steady climb, breaking all-genre sales and touring records in more than 40 venues over the last two years, with no sign of slowing down.
The ACM and Country Music Association award winner announced this week that his 2013 “Night Train Tour” will stop in Tulsa on May 10 at the BOK Center. Special guests Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett will open the show.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and be available online at www.bokcenter.com, Arby's Box Office, all Tickets.com outlets, or by calling (866) 726-5287.
Tulsa ticket prices are $28.75 and $54.75.
“The thing I'm most excited about is getting to add some new songs off the ‘Night Train' album into my show,” said Aldean in a news release. “As a musician, it's great to be able to shake up the set list and think of cool ways to present these new songs in the live show. I'm a big fan of both Jake and Thomas Rhett, so it'll be awesome to have those guys out with us.”
Aldean solidified his stadium headliner status when the first announced stadium dates of his 2013 “Night Train Tour” sold out in just minutes. This year, the country singer will play to sold-out crowds at the University of Georgia's Sanford Stadium in Athens on April 13, plus a two-night stand at Boston's Fenway Park on July 12-13 before heading to Wrigley Field in Chicago.
In addition, Aldean sold out New York City's iconic Madison Square Garden in less than 10 minutes for his March 2 stop there.
The Macon, Ga., native recently debuted the third single off “Night Train,” “1994,” giving country radio a dose of nostalgia. The song follows seven consecutive No. 1 hits for Aldean, including “Night Train's” “Take A Little Ride” and “The Only Way I Know,” featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church.
