"Each year you try to change it up” Aldean says of his live shows.

Country star Jason Aldean headlined two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park this past Friday and Saturday (July 13 and 14). He not only sold out the shows in minutes, but he wound up breaking attendance records for the venue.

The previous records had been held by Paul McCartney, for a single-night concert, and Dave Matthews, for his two-night run in 2006. Aldean wound up bringing in more than 70,000 fans over the two days to the historic baseball stadium. Not bad for the first country artist to ever play the venue.

Fenway was one of several massive venues Aldean has been playing during his 2013 Night Train Tour, during which he’s graduated from arenas and amphitheaters to becoming a stadium headliner.

In a recent Radio.com Essentials profile, he talked about how important his live shows are to his music career.

At Fenway, the Night Train singer made the most of the experience.
