Alan Jackson Sells Out Shows on Australian Tour

Alan Jackson sold out all four announced concerts in Australia when tickets went on sale Friday (Oct. 8). Set for March, the brief tour was to have included concerts in Melbourne and Sydney and two shows in Brisbane. An additional performance in Brisbane has been added because of ticket demand. “The excitement level for Alan Jackson’s first tour in our country just can’t be measured,” concert promoter Rob Potts said. “The fans can’t believe he’s really coming — and ticket sales have proven just how excited they are.” Jackson is looking forward to his first-ever Australian tour. “I’ve always heard that it’s just beautiful down there, and everybody I know that’s been there has loved it,” he said. “I’ve heard that the Australian people are really warm and welcome people from the U.S. so generously. That’s all I’ve ever heard — just great things. Great things.”
