Live Nation launches 2011 Mega Ticket

Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts will return to the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in 2011.

As in years past, the behemoth concert promoter, Live Nation, has partnered with US99 to bundle five of Chicago’s biggest summer country concerts for their annual Country Mega Ticket. In 2011, all concerts will be held, on Saturdays, at the Southwest suburban First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, Tinley Park, Ill, and mainstays Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts will return as headliners. While it appears the Mega Ticket throughout the Throwdown Tour in 2011 and Brooks & Dunn are no longer touring, country rocker Jason Aldean has been promoted to headliner status.

While 2011 official ticket prices haven’t yet been released, mega ticket presale begins on Mon, Jan. 24 at 10 a.m. and the remaining tickets will become available to the general public starting Fri, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. In the past, ticket prices ranged from $150 for lawn to $600 for “platinum” 100 level seats. The Mega Ticket is like “season tickets” for sports teams. Ticket holders are guaranteed the same seats at all five concerts.
