Jason Aldean’s Concert Surprise
I remember going to a Colin Raye show at the Stanley a few years ago and being taken by surprise when he finished his set with a rocking version of Rod Stewart’s “Hot Legs”. Country and rock have often been fused to form the hybrid known as “country-rock” and now Jason Aldean is planning to mine this territory on his new tour.
The tour, which started Friday in North Little Rock, Arkansas plans to utilize a huge “rock” style stage with plenty of ramps and sound equipment.
“We wanted to have a rock n’ roll vibe to it,” Jason admits. “I don’t know how many amps we have up there but it looks like a Metallica show and that’s what we wanted. It’s cool.”
So far no New York State dates have been announced but stay tuned as further shows are sure to be added.
