The flood of country concert announcements just keeps coming.
Jason Aldean is the latest Nashville superstar to unveil a concert at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, following Brooks and Dunn, Rascal Flatts and Lady Antebellum in just the last two weeks. Aldean’s just-extended We Back Tour will stop at the Amp on Sept. 11. Brett Young, Mitchell Tenpenny and Dee Jay Silver are scheduled to open.
As with Brooks and Dunn, Rascal Flatts, Lady A and Thomas Rhett, the show could be part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket package, which allows fans to buy a single seat for a slate of country concerts throughout the summer. Megaticket lineups vary by city, but Aldean’s website says “select dates” will be part of the Megaticket, which is expected to be announced next week.
Aldean has always been a frequent performer in Tampa, but this will be his first stop here since August 2017. That show came about six weeks before the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas, where Aldean was headlining on stage when a shooter opened fire on a crowd down below. Nearly 60 people died and hundreds more were injured in one of the deadliest mass killings in recent American history.
Aldean hasn’t stopped touring, though, and in 2018 he won his third straight Entertainer of the Year trophy at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Since his last Tampa stop, he’s released two more albums and a string of hit singles, including the hit duet Drowns the Whiskey with Miranda Lambert.
