Jason Aldean ready to party this summer

, Staff

Jason Aldean has revealed plans for an extensive summer headlining tour. The country star will bring his “My Kinda Party” tour to Massachusetts for a show at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sunday, June 5. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $15.75 to $49.75, will go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Opening the show will be rising stars Eric Church and The JaneDear Girls.

Aldean will be touring in support of his latest album, My Kinda Party. The album, his fourth studio effort, debuted at #1 on the Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 after its release last November. It has been powered by the success of hit singles “My Kinda Party” and “Don’t You Wanna Stay”, the later of which – a duet with Kelly Clarkson – just reached the top spot on the Billboard Country Singles chart, marking Aldean’s sixth career #1 single.

“This is the tour I’ve dreamed about putting together my whole life,” Aldean said in a press release. “My band has never been tighter, and I finally have enough material and the kinda production to really take the songs to that next level for the fans. This one is for my Mom, who used to drive me to clubs when I wasn’t even 16 yet, wait on me to play the same Alabama, John Anderson and George Strait covers every night, then drive me home and make me do my homework before bed. We’ve come a long way!”

Prior to the summertime show in Mansfield, Aldean will play the Mullins Center in Amherst on Friday, April 29. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $39.75 and $55.75.

The 34-year old native of Macon, Georgia is up for a pair of Academy of Country Music Awards this year, including the top prize of Entertainer of the Year as well as Top Male Vocalist of the Year. The ACM Awards, now in 46th year, will take place on Sunday, April 3 in Las Vegas. CBS will air the ceremony live from the MGM Grand Garden Aren at 8 p.m.

Church continues to tour in support of his sophomore effort, 2009’s Carolina. The JaneDear Girls, a duo comprised of Susie Brown and Danelle Leverett, released their self-titled debut album last month.
