NASHVILLE, TN – May 13, 2011 – As the “My Kinda Party Tour” shifts into high gear for the nation’s biggest summer amphitheatre dates, PLATINUM selling country rocker Jason Aldean is already posting capacity crowds well in advance of each concert.

“It is exciting to see Jason’s shows selling out, but the fact that they are selling out A WEEK IN ADVANCE is nothing short of amazing,” said Brian O’Connell, Live Nation’s President of Country Touring. “Jason is taking his rightful place at the top of the touring world in all genres as a major superstar.”
