George Jones’ Final Concert Will Still Go On

George Jones
Webster & Associates

In an unexpected twist on the old notion that the show must go on, country legend George Jones‘ star-studded farewell concert — which was scheduled for Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 22 — will still take place as planned.

In Jones’ absence, the once-in-a-lifetime all-star roster that he had assembled will get together to celebrate and pay tribute to the singer and his enduring legacy.

“Everyone has been asking if we will still do the show,” says Nancy Jones, George’s wife of 30 years, in a press release. “I have asked Garth [Brooks], 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.”

Performers originally confirmed for the show included Alan Jackson, Shelby Lynne,  Sam Moore, Dierks Bentley, Lorrie Morgan, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner and Gene Watson. Pam Tillis, Kathy Mattea, Tracy Lawrence, Patty Loveless, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt and T. Graham Brown were also scheduled, along with Lee Greenwood, Little Jimmy Dickens and more.

Jones’ publicist says that not all of the artists originally confirmed have been contacted and re-confirmed for the memorial event. A list of confirmed talent will be available at George Jones’ official website after it’s announced. The concert was already sold out prior to the icon’s passing, but additional tickets could eventually become available via Ticketmaster.
