Jason Aldean Announces 2017 “Concert for the Cure” to Benefit Susan G. Komen Organization

Jason Aldean announced that his annual Concert for the Cure will take place during his They Don’t Know Tour stop on Oct. 20 at KFC YUM Center in Louisville, Ky.

Jason will donate a portion of all ticket sales garnered throughout the year to Komen Kentucky. Since 2004, Jason has helped raise more than $3 million to benefit Susan G. Komen chapters across the country. Susan G. Komen organizations fund more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.

“As long as I have the chance, I will do my part and raise awareness for this cause,” said Jason. “My fans keep fighting the battle with this terrible disease along with us, and our dream is that nobody has to fight the disease anymore.”

Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver will join Jason onstage for the Concert for the Cure on Oct. 20.
