Jason Aldean is set to hit the stage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway made the announcement on Feb. 10, 2014 that Aldean will be performing during Legends Day which will be celebrating Mario Andretti’s 45th anniversary of his Indianapolis 500 victory. The event will take place on May 24, 2014.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway president J .Douglas Boles said "Over the last several years, we have continued to add reasons for our fans to visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the day before the Indianapolis 500 to celebrate our current drivers and the legends of the race as part of Legends Day.”
Boles continued by saying "Adding a concert featuring an outstanding entertainer like Jason Aldean is a fantastic way for fans to cap off a day of honoring our current and past drivers and get geared up for ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ that will take place the next day."
“Firestone Presents Jason Aldean at the Indy 500” on May 24, 2014 featuring Tyler Farr as Aldean’s opening act beginning at 5:30 p.m. EST on the new infield stage at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Tickets for Aldean’s concert will be available beginning Feb. 17, 2014.
Chief Marketing Officer at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations Philip Dobbs said “Firestone is a legendary brand, so it is fitting that we honor a legend in Mario Andretti with a legendary event featuring Jason Aldean” adding “Integrating the diehard fan bases of Firestone, racing and country music will only add to the excitement and tradition of the world’s most historic track, a place where legends are made.”
Aldean’s “Burn It Down Tour” is set to kick off May, 1, 2014 with Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr opening the shows.
