Jason Aldean has announced that his 8th annual "Concert for the Cure" will be held on Friday, October 25th at his tour stop at the New Orleans Arena. The event is in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.Throughout the year, Aldean sets aside 50 cents from every concert ticket sold, then selects one market in October and donates all the proceeds to that city's Susan G. Komen affiliate.

"Last year the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that," said Aldean. "If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas we'll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs. I can't wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!"

What a fantastic thing to do for our friends in New Orleans.

By the way, the show is sold-out but your friends here at 97.3 The Dawg will have free tickets coming your way real soon!
