Jason Aldean to Launch 2023 Highway Desperado Tour in July – Billboard

Written by on 13/02/2023

Jason Aldean will return to the road in July, headlining his 2023 Highway Desperado Tour.

Aldean will welcome “We Got History” singer Mitchell Tenpenny, “Wild as Her” hitmaker Corey Kent, and Dee Jay Silver on the 41-date tour, which kicks off July 14 in Bethel, New York at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. The Live Nation-produced trek is currently scheduled to wind down on Oct. 28 in Tampa, Florida at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre.

Kent and Tenpenny also announced their opening slots on the tour, with Tenpenny saying, “We can finally announce this tour!! We can’t wait to be on the road with @Jason_Aldean! This tour is going to freaking rock! Let’s get it! See y’all on the the road…”

Kent added, “Stoked to announce that I’ll be joining @jasonaldean and @m10penny & @deejaysilver1 on the Highway Desperado Tour!”

Aldean’s “That’s What Tequila Does” is currently at No. 8 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, and the track is included on Aldean’s 2022 double album Macon, Georgia. The project also features Aldean’s Country Airplay three-week chart-topper (and Grammy-nominated track) “If I Didn’t Love You,” with Carrie Underwood, as well as the three-week Country Airplay chart-topper “Trouble With a Heartbreak.”

Aldean’s raucous live shows have thrice earned him the Academy of Country Music’s entertainer of the year honor, and in 2019, he earned the Academy of Country Music’s Dick Clark artist of the decade award. Aldean previously told Billboard of the pride he takes in selecting openers for his tours–a few of his previous tour openers have included Kane Brown, Luke Bryan and Eric Church.

“We have a pretty good track record with that,” Aldean said. “There’s a chalk board in that room over there in my manager’s office. Every year we’ll have all the names on the chalk board, every artist on every label that is available, that we think is a possibility. We spend a lot of time making sure we get the best options we can, someone we think is going to work with our crowd and take off in the next year.”
