Following the year long concert freeze Jason Aldean can’t wait to get back on stage and the country music icon announced that he’ll be playing a pair of socially distanced shows in May as part of the Concerts on the Farm series at the Bonnaroo festival site in Manchester, TN.
Announcing the gigs under the banner “Jason Aldean: Live at the Bonnaroo Farm,” the performances will take place on May 14th and 15th. Saying “You could’ve asked me to play a gas station at this point and I would say yes,” Aldean injected some humor into the situation in a statement on his website about the limited-capacity shows.
As for safety precautions, fans will be grouped in four-person pods placed six feet apart. Attendees can set up chairs and blankets inside their enclosed spaces and while masks are required on the concert grounds they can be removed once concertgoers are inside the pods, whose prices range from $99-$450. “So being able to set up the full show with all the band guys plugged in is going to make for a really good time. We’re going to turn it up – there’s nobody out there to bother – and make up for some lost time, for sure” said Aldean.
