George Jones' planned final show turns into star-studded tribute
What was originally scheduled as George Jones' "Grand Tour" finale for his career-ending trek will now become a tribute to the late country star.
The Nov. 22 concert will go on as planned at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and will feature the same guests who originally signed on.
"Everyone has been asking if we will still do the show," Nancy Jones, George's wife, said in a press release. "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."
Jones' final show sold out prior to his passing, so fans are asked to check with Ticketmaster for any tickets that may come available.
Jones was admitted to a Nashville hospital in mid-April with a fever and irregular blood pressure. He died about a week later at the age of 81.
