The hot and humid weather in Hartford, Connecticut on Saturday, July 15th didn't hold back country music fans from attending the highly-anticipated Jason Aldean Highway Desparado Tour making its' second tour stop at the Xfinity Theatre in Hartford.
Almost 20,000 fans packed the house and lawn for the concert and Jason Aldean made mention of the hot weather -- even prior to the concert saying that Connecticut weather has been hotter than Florida!
The show began with great lighting, engaging screens and song after song filled with energy from Jason. About halfway through "Crazytown", the country star abruptly left the stage leaving his band to finish out the song. Once the performance ended, the house lights at the Xfinity Theatre remained off and fans sat in the darkness wondering what happened and if Jason Aldean was okay. After roughly 20-minutes, an announcement was made that Jason was suffering from an illness which stopped him from continuing the show.
The Xfinity Theatre posted an update Sunday morning passing along an update from one of Jason Aldean's reps: "A rep has confirmed he is now doing well after experiencing heat stroke during last night's performance"
