JASON ALDEAN CONTINUES TO HONOR BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS WITH VIP TREATMENT ON THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR
The ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Nominee Launches New Tour in Toledo, OH on April 27
NASHVILLE, TN – Mar. 22, 2017 – ACM “Entertainer of the Year” nominee Jason Aldean announces plans to continue his partnership with Susan G. Komen® this year on his upcoming THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR, offering fans a one of a kind opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors as “Honorary Roadies.” On select dates over the course of the tour, Aldean will surprise survivors nominated through essay submissions with concert tickets, VIP backstage access, and a private meet-and-greet at the concert of their choice.
“As long as I’m doing what I’m doing, I’m will do what I can to fight breast cancer and celebrate its survivors,” said Aldean. “We all know someone whose life has been changed by this terrible disease, so we’re going to treat as many survivors as we can this year with a night out to take their minds off everything else.”
Since 2004, RIAA’s top digital Country male artist of all time has continued to find new ways to support breast cancer research, after launching his “Concert for the Cure,” an annual benefit performance that has raised more than $3 million benefitting Susan G. Komen. After losing a dear friend to the disease, Aldean will continue to donate a portion of each ticket sale toward his longstanding partner, while also honoring one breast cancer survivor and guest during his upcoming JASON ALDEAN: THEY DON’T KNOW TOUR, launching in Toledo, OH, on Apr. 27, with special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver.
