Jason Aldean headlined the first-ever country show at Boston’s Fenway Park over the weekend, playing two sold-out shows on Friday (July 12th) and Saturday (July 13th). The superstar broke Paul McCartney‘s single night record and The Dave Matthews Band‘s two night record, previously set in 2006. Fans snatched up over 70,000 tickets in less than an hour and packed the ballpark. Both nights featured special guests Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett.
Jason said, “Boston is my kinda town. There were fans in the streets partying all day, so they were ready when we hit the stage, and they just never let up, so neither did we! This was a huge night in my career and I think a big night for country music fans too. We were able to write some new history together here in Boston tonight.”
He joked, “I heard we also set a new all-time record for beer sales. They drank Boston dry . . . it was wild!”
The 2013 Night Train tour has sold out every show so far this year and continues next week at Wrigley Field in Chicago (Saturday, July 20th).
