From a press release:

Today, multi-platinum country superstar Jason Aldean announced that he is gearing up for his Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour this summer.

Featuring special guests Gabby Barrett, John Morgan, and Dee Jay Silver, the nationwide trek produced by Live Nation will stop in 34 cities, starting with Scranton at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain on Friday, July 15 at 7:30 p.m.

“I’m ready to get back out and feel the nights come alive,” Aldean said.

“We are already thinking about the setlist. … There will be some songs off the new record like ‘Rock And Roll Cowboy,’ which felt like a great tour name because it’s all about knowing you belong on the road.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, Feb. 18 at 10 a.m. via Live Nation. A pre-sale for the Montage Mountain (1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton) show will be held on Thursday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. using promo code CURTAIN.

This year’s CRS Humanitarian Award recipient and current Grammy nominee took the tour namesake from his recently released heavy-hearted dispatch track “Rock and Roll Cowboy” off his double album “Macon, Georgia” (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records), available in its entirety on April 22. As “‘Macon’ exhibits Aldean’s dynamic approach to country music” (American Songwriter), it is sure to translate onstage as “he knows how to augment and enrich the fan experience with dazzling light shows and pyrotechnics” (Spokesman Review), delivering concerts “filled with the perfect mix of rockin’ anthems and raucous drinkin’ songs” (Herald Extra).

The three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old school soul. Aldean’s previous record, “9,” debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart; he has had the most Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – more than any other artists – since making his chart debut in 2005. Notably, seven of his studio albums have been certified platinum or multi-platinum while bolstering 26 No. 1 hits, 15 billion streams, and over 20 million albums sold. “He has blended his own recipe, and it’s one that has vaulted him to the pinnacle of country music success” (Atlanta Journal Constitution).

Known as a card-carrying member of country’s elite headliners, Aldean’s incendiary tours are nearing legendary status, as he has sold over 10 million tickets and is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell out multiple stadiums, including UGA’s Sanford Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, AT&T Stadium, and Gillette Stadium.

Continuing success outside of the music industry, Aldean recently launched his latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak, and spice.

The 44-year-old singer, songwriter, and record producer’s 10th studio effort, “Macon, Georgia,” is an expansive double album, with the first half, “Macon,” released on Nov. 12, 2021. The second half, “Georgia,” is set to follow on April 22.
