JASON ALDEAN, with Eric Church, Jane Dear Girls

5/13/2011 Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, St. Louis, MO. – I first shot Jason Aldean when he was on tour with Tim McGraw in 2008. I remember that set standing out, and feeling like a star was being born in front of my eyes. My second time shooting him, he was headlining the 12,ooo seat Family Arena in St. Charles, MO. The place was packed for that show, and was a clear indication that this dude was ready to carry a summer amphitheater, and big arena tour on his shoulders. That time is now, as Jason brought the ‘My Kinda Party‘ tour to StL, to open the first of several Live Nation Country Mega Ticket shows for the 2011 season. Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Toby… if you’re reading this ( 🙂 ), Jason Aldean ain’t playin’ y’all. The bar has been set high, very high. Jason brought with him strong support, from Eric Church, and The Jane Dear Girls. Photos of the first two songs from each artist, no flash, from the pit, after the jump. (I originally posted this writing ‘John’ Dear Girls earlier, mostly due to not enough coffee .. I’m a dork. Sorry…)The Jane Dear Girls
