Jason Aldean cannot wait to get back on stage after the yearlong COVID-19 pandemic concert freeze. The country icon announced that he'll be playing a pair of socially distanced shows as part of the Concerts on the Farm series on the Bonnaroo festival site in Manchester, Tenn., in May.

"FINALLY!!! They are turnin the boys loose in May. LETS FKIN GET IT!" Aldean wrote in an Instagram post Monday (April 5) announcing the gigs under the banner "Jason Aldean: Live at the Bonnaroo Farm." The shows will take place on May 14 and 15.

"You could’ve asked me to play a gas station at this point and I would say yes," Aldean said in a statement on his website about the limited-capacity gigs in which fans will be grouped in four-person pods placed six feet apart."So being able to set up the full show with all the band guys plugged in is going to make for a really good time. We're going to turn it up -- there’s nobody out there to bother -- and make up for some lost time, for sure."

Aldean Army members are able to purchase tickets early on Wednesday (April 7) at 11 a.m. ET, with $1 from each ticket going to the Bonnaroo Works Fund.

Attendees can set up chairs and blankets inside their pods. Masks are required on the concert grounds, but can be removed once concertgoers are inside the pods, whose prices range from $99-$450. Other upcoming Concert on the Farm performers include Billy Strings, Jon Pardi, The Avett Brothers, and, on Sept. 2-5, this year rescheduled Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival.
