Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean tours converge at Target Field this summer


Some big name country stars will rock Target Field this summer.

Kenny Chesney's "The Big Revival Tour" and Jason Aldean's "The Burn It Down Tour" will converge at Target Field July 18 as part of the artists' 10-city tour, the Minnesota Twins announced Monday.

"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 news release. "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 for 10 nights this summer. I know what me and the guys are bringing in terms of music, and I know Jason can hang with us!"

Ticket information and a complete artist lineup will be announced at a later date, the Twins said. Twins season ticket holders who have renewed for the 2015 season will have access to presale before the general public.

Chesney played the first concert ever at Target Field in 2012, two years after the ballpark opened. The 2015 show will be the third time the country music star has played at stadium in just four years.

Earlier this month he announced on Good Morning America that he and his band were going on tour again after taking 2014 off to work on Chesney's 15th studio album.

Last week, Aldean announced he was extending his tour into next year, Rolling Stone says. The musician headlined WE Fest this past summer with Brad Paisley and also played in the Twin Cities in 2013. Fans took to Twitter Monday sharing their excitement about the upcoming tour:

This is just the latest concert announcement to please country music fans. Earlier this year, Garth Brooks announced his tour will be stopping in Minneapolis, ending a 16-year absence. Brooks kept adding Minneapolis shows to his stop after they kept selling out – he'll be playing 11 shows at the Target Center this November.
