Jason Aldean will celebrate his annual "Concert For The Cure” during his upcoming They Don't Know tour stop at Louisville, KY's KFC YUM Center on October 20th. The show will feature special guests Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver. Jason will donate a portion from all ticket sales throughout the year to Komen Kentucky.
He said, “As long as I have the chance, I will do my part and raise awareness for this cause. My fans keep fighting the battle with this terrible disease along with us, and our dream is that nobody has to fight the disease anymore.”
In 2004, Jason launched his efforts to support breast cancer research after losing a dear friend to the disease. Since his first "Concert for the Cure,” the singer’s efforts have raised more than $3 million to benefit Susan G. Komen chapters across the country.
Jason tells us: ["Every year we do Concert for the Cure. We pick a place in October, which is breast cancer awareness month and basically pick a city to do the show in, and you know the show's always a lot of fun. When people think about breast cancer obviously it's a terrible disease, but that show that we do is as much about celebrating the people that have beat the disease as much as it is about remembering people that've lost their battle with it, so it's not one of those nights that everybody's sad. It's a fun night, and we do a lot of cool stuff. I deck out in pink which doesn't happen very often, but, you know, it's just a cool thing."] SOUNDCUE (:43 OC: . . . a cool thing.)
Jason's They Don't Know tour plays in Spokane, WA on Saturday (September 23rd). The tour officially wraps on October 28th in Bossier City, LA.
