Chesney, Aldean add second show at Target Field

Country music stars Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean will play a second concert at Target Field next July.

The two musicians are combining their respective tours at 10 different stadiums over the course of the summer, and they have now added a July 19 show to accompany the concert already scheduled for July 18 in Minneapolis.

Tickets for both nights go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. CT at

"We've played so many of these stadiums so many summers, I know just how hard the fans coming out can rock," Chesney said in a statement. "There aren't a lot of guys out there who can hit it the way Jason does, so I'm glad we're able to bring both of our tours together this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us."

Ticket prices start at $46.25. It will be Aldean's first visit to Target Field and Chesney's third.

"Kenny is the guy everybody in country music looks up to when they think about workin' hard, building your career out on the road and getting to eventually play stadiums," Aldean said in a statement. "When we first started dipping our toe into that business a few years ago, he's the guy I would call or text for advice. We have a real friendship. Don't get me wrong -- that doesn't mean I'm going to make it easy to follow me every night. He's gonna have to work for it harder than he ever has before."

Other superstar artists who have performed at Target Field include Paul McCartney, O.A.R, Zac Brown Band and Tim McGraw.
