INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 10, 2014) – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway promised a big reveal Monday–and organizers certainly came through.

Country superstar Jason Aldean will headline the Legends Day Concert Presented by Firestone on Saturday, May 24 at IMS. The inaugural Legends Day Concert will take place on the new Turn 4 infield stage at the track.

Aldean, an ACM nominee and reigning Male Vocalist of the Year, has played some of the biggest venues in the country, including Madison Square Garden, Wrigley Field, the Hollywood Bowl and Fenway Park. The multi-platinum country singer kicks off his “Burn It Down Tour” on May 1.

Aldean has tallied 12 No. 1 singles at Country Radio and has sold over 8.5 million albums to date. His current album “Night Train” scored the biggest debut by a male artist in five years, earning platinum certification in only four weeks.

IMS President Doug Boles said the concert is part of an effort to give fans unique reasons to visit the track and celebrate the Indianapolis 500.

The concert will also feature up-and-coming country music artist Tyler Farr, who is an ACM nominee for New Artist of the Year. Recognized by country music fans everywhere for his platinum No. 1 single “Red Neck Crazy,” Farr had the highest debut by a male country artist on the 2013 Billboard Top 200.

Legends Day includes the Public Drivers Meeting, autograph sessions with the Indianapolis 500 starting field of 33 drivers, 1969 Indianapolis 500 champion Mario Andretti and other former Indy 500 drivers and a memorabilia show.

Advance general admission tickets are $30, and day of show tickets are $35. VIP tickets are available for $50 in advance and $60 day of show.
