Aldean's Back in the Saddle Tour begins in August and will wrap on Oct. 30, and he will also be joined by openers HARDY and Dee Jay Silver. "It’s been emotional being back on stage with my band for the first time in a year this weekend," Aldean said in a statement when the tour was announced. "It’s made us all even more ready to get back to life as we all know it. Being on the road makes all of us — the band, the crew and me — happy and I haven’t felt this excited about going on tour in 15 years."
The Georgia native was recently able to play to a live crowd for the first time in over a year when he headlined two nights at The Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, Tennessee in May. "I think just the initial walking onstage, that's kind of always my favorite part anyway is the initial moment that I walk onstage and you kind of get the pop from the crowd," he told Entertainment Tonight. "To hear that after 14 months, it was pretty special."
