Country star Jason Aldean to play Globe Life Park in Arlington
Tickets for Aldean will go on sale May 10, Live Nation officials said.
Aldean was named artist of the decade by the Academy of Country Music.
The concert, which is part of Aldean’s 2019 Ride All Night Tour, is the third involving a major music star this summer.
Paul McCartney will perform at Globe Like Park June 14, and Billy Joel is scheduled to perform Oct. 12, in what Rangers officials say will be the last concert at the venue.
Aldean’s and Joel’s respective concerts will be part of a potentially electric weekend in the Metroplex. That same weekend, the annual Texas-Oklahoma football game will be played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
For fans with eclectic tastes in music (and lots of money), it might be possible to catch both concerts and the football game.
The Rangers will move into the new Globe Life Field under construction across the street from Globe Life Park next baseball season.
The Texas Rangers and Live Nation made the announcement regarding Jason Aldean at noon Monday at Texas Live!, which is the entertainment and restaurant venue that opened last year outside the ballpark.
The voice of the Rangers, Chuck Morgan, introduced Rangers Hall of Fame outfielder Rusty Greer, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams and officials from Live Nation.
Aldean appeared on a video showed on the big screen above the Texas Live! stage, to formally announce his concert.
“This is the final country show at the baseball stadium and I’m bringing along my friends Kane Brown and Carly Pearce and DJ Silver,” Aldean said in the video. “I can’t wait to see you guys.”
Greer also spoke briefly, recounting a few fond memories at Globe Life Park, where he played his career.
“I grew up in that park. (I have) a lot of memories in the park — the 1996 Division champions, lots of great friends I’ve made,” Greer said.
