George Jones’ Final Concert Will Go On – The Grand Tour Is Not Over
As many people know, George Jones’ final Nashville show was scheduled for November 22, 2013. The possum died knowing that he’d play a sold-out show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena with a cast of guests that would fill the Encyclopedia of Country Music.
When George Jones passed on April 26, 2013, in the middle of his ‘Grand Tour,’ I immediately thought how cool it was that he knew that his final concert was sold out and many of Country Music’s biggest stars had set aside the date to join him for one last party. Despite his passing, I also thought that the show should go on, as a tribute to George Jones. I’m happy to report that it looks like I wasn’t alone with that idea!
According to Webster and Associates Public Relations, Nancy Jones says “Everyone has been asking if we will still do the show. I have asked Garth, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson and others and they all said ‘yes, I am still going to do it’ so with all the artists still planning on coming, we are going to honor George one final time.”
