AceShowbiz - Jason Aldean is forced to reschedule one of his "Burn It Down" tour dates in the midst of an unprecedented circumstance. On early Tuesday, October 6 morning, a truck carrying Aldean's tour equipments was involved in a crash in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
The trailer truck's driver reportedly lost control of the heavy vehicle on a British Columbia highway. The big rig then hit a rock and flipped over. The driver was lucky to escape with minor injuries. Investigation was underway to determine the cause of crash.
According to local reports, the truck which originated from Minnesotta was totaled with parts of the wheel base torn off of the vehicle. A security guard and an insurance claims adjuster were working on site with plans to remove the vehicle later that day.
Aldean, who played Kamloops the previous night, arrived safely in British Columbia. The equipment inside the trailer were needed for the CB Center in Prince George concert on Tuesday night. The concert has been rescheduled to Wednesday night.
Aldean tweeted, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, tonights show (10/6) has been moved to tomorrow, Wednesday, October 7th." Those unable to attend the new date can refund their tickets at the point of purchase. It is yet clear whether the other four concert dates in the Canadian leg will be affected by the incident.
Aldean had faced similar situation two years ago when one of his tour buses was involved in accident that killed a pedestrian in Indiana. "In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen," he said at that time.
