Jason Aldean is on fire. The reigning ACM Male Vocalist of The Year is tearing across the country on his Burn It Down Tour, which recently joined up with Kenny Chesney‘s summer stadium run for a string of dates. Now, Aldean is back on his own with very special guests Cole Swindell and Tyler Farr to wrap up his 2015 trek. Last night in Scranton, PA, Aldean and his pals weathered the rain and brought some heat to the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain.
After a great opening set from Tyler Farr, Cole Swindell took the stage. He greeted the crowed with “Hey Ya’ll” and even threw in a cover of Florida Georgia Line‘s “This Is How We Roll.” He wrapped things up with his hit “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” that’s currently tearing up the country radio waves. The crowd new every word, and sang along with Swindell.
From the opening seconds of his first song, Jason Aldean made sure the Burn It Down Tour lived up to his name. Amid explosive flames and pyro, Aldean descended from the rafters on a platform as he and his band tore into his hit “Hicktown.” From there, Aldean continued the hit parade with highlights that included “Amarillo Sky,” “Tonight Looks Good on You,” “Big Green Tractor,” “Johnny Cash,” “Night Train,” and the evening’s most appropriate anthem “Burnin’ It Down.” During the set he was joined by tourmates Farr and Swindell and they treated fans to a rendition of “The Only Way I Know.” Aldean also through in a cover of Bryan Adams’ classic hit “Summer of ’69.“
Jason returned after the set for an epic two-track encore – the chart-topping “Dirt Road Anthem” and the heavy rocker “She’s Country.“ All in all, Aldean certainly showed the crowd why he was crowned Male Entertainer of The Year at the 50th ACM Awards a few months back. The Burn It Down Tour wraps up later this fall on October 24 at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, FL. – by Matt Bishop
