Country superstar Alan Jackson has announced extensive tour dates for 2020. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee will embark on the itinerary early in the new year, with a show in Cincinnati, Ohio on 10 January. Eighteen concerts have been confirmed to date, with more to be added to the itinerary.
Tickets and information for all of the dates on the 2020 tour are available at the tour page of his website. Jackson is teaming up again with CID Entertainment to offer VIP experiences to his fans at almost all of the shows. Audiences will be treated to career songs and original compositions that made him famous, such as ‘Here in The Real World,’ ‘Chattahoochee,’ ‘Drive,’ ‘Gone Country,’ ‘It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere’ and ‘Good Time.’
The schedule includes a visit to Jackson’s home state of Georgia on Valentine’s Day and a return in the spring to Stagecoach, the festival that he last played in its inaugural year of 2007. There will also be a summer night headlining the 40th annual Country Concert festival in Fort Loramie, Ohio. The schedule also takes him to Nashville, where his last full-scale concert in 2017 celebrated the kick-off of the Nashville Predators’ home stand in the Stanley Cup Finals.
In time-honoured fashion, many of the shows will feature not only star guests but some of the rising artists that Jackson supports by giving them slots at AJ’s Good Time Bar, the honky tonk he owns on Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville. This is a tradition that has seen him give invaluable exposure to artists playing for arena-sized crowds for the first time, many of whom have gone on to join him among country music’s A-list. They include Brad Paisley, LeAnn Rimes, Sara Evans, Chris Young and, in more recent times, Jon Pardi and Lauren Alaina.
