Jason Aldean Invites Ludacris Onstage During Sold Out Atlanta Show
Over the weekend, Jason Aldean rocked two back-to-back and sold-out shows at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta, Ga. on the latest leg of his My Kinda Party Tour. The Friday and Saturday shows were part of the new summer leg of the tour, which kicked off Thursday night (May 17) in Birmingham, Ala. Aldean wasted no time pulling out the big guns for the weekend shows — he had famed rapped Ludacris join him onstage to perform his multi-week No. 1 smash, ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’
The hip-hop star joined Aldean on stage unannounced mid-song, sending the packed house into a tizzy. Fans pulled out their cameras and phones to capture the exciting moment, including the video clip below.
“I’ve never felt the kind of energy that the fans from the ATL brought this weekend,” Aldean says in a statement. “I didn’t think it could get any wilder, and then when Luda came out, the place came totally unglued. We’ve gotten to perform together several times, but man … he’s the Mayor of Atlanta, so this one was beyond cool.”
Aldean’s My Kinda Party Tour continues on next week in Louisiana before taking a brief break for the 2012 CMA Music Festival in Nashville at the beginning of June. Click here to see a complete list of cities where Aldean will be stopping throughout the next several months.
