Jason Aldean’s 7th Annual Concert For The Cure Already Sold Out
Event Raises Money For Breast Cancer Research
Jason Aldean will stage his seventh annual benefit show for breast cancer research, “Concert For The Cure,” Oct. 27 at Dallas’ Gexa Energy Pavilion. Proceeds from the show will be donated to local affiliates of the charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The show, which also serves as the final date on Aldean’s My Kinda Party Tour, has already sold out, with more than 20,000 tickets purchased in just four minutes.
“This is one of the nights I look forward to most every year,” Aldean says in a press release. “I’m really proud of the money we've raised so far, and it feels great to be able to honor our friend who passed away at such an early age from breast cancer. Everyone has been affected by this disease at some point, and I want to do my part to help find a cure before my daughters grow up.”
Susan G. Komen for the Cure works to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries.
Aldean’s current tour and has broken more than 40 venue attendance records, and has sold 1.9 million tickets during its run. His new album, “Night Train,” is in stores Oct. 16.
