Country Singer Jason Aldean To Return To Bryce Jordan Center

Country star Jason Aldean will bring his 2016 tour “We Were Here” to the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. Aldean will be joined by Thomas Rhett and A Thousand Horses.

Aldean is no stranger to Happy Valley — he’s performed at the BJC both at the end of the 2013 spring semester and in February of 2010.

Aldean has released six albums and won a number of Country Music Awards, and he is regularly nominated for Grammys. His 2010 album, “My Kinda Party,” was certified triple platinum. The 2016 tour is named after Aldean’s current single, “Gonna Know We Were Here,” which is the fourth off of his 2014 album “Old Boots, New Dirt.”

Aldean collaborated with Kelly Clarkson on “Don’t You Wanna Stay” and is also well known for his songs “Big Green Tractor” and “Tonight Looks Good on You.”

Tickets will be available through Live Nation and will go on sale to the public next Friday, Oct. 23, at 10 a.m. Ticket prices for the event have yet to be announced.
