SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Country superstar Jason Aldean is bringing his “Burn It Down Tour” to the New York State Fair on Aug. 30.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at the State Fair Box Office and via the fair’s online ticket seller, etix.com.

Aldean performed to a sold-out audience at the 2012 State Fair. His appearance this year will close the fair’s grandstand concert series.

Aldean has sold more than 8.5 million albums and has notched 12 No. 1 hits. His 2014 “Burn It Down Tour” will trek to about 50 cities this year, including several Major League Baseball stadiums.

His last tour had sellouts at some of the nation’s most legendary venues, including Madison Square Garden, Wrigley Field and the Hollywood Bowl.
