GEORGE JONES BRING FAREWELL CONCERT SERIES TO SPARTANBURG

01/22/13

George Jones is bringing “The Grand Tour,” his farewell series of concerts, to Spartanburg.

The legendary country music singer will perform May 18 at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium as part of a tour that Jones has said will be his last. Contemporary country duo Wilson Fairchild will open the show.

Reserved tickets, priced at $42.75, are on sale now at the auditorium box office and at Ticketmaster outlets including Publix supermarkets. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

After more than five decades of touring, Jones, 81, has decided he is ready to slow down and spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren. “It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come,” Jones said in a news release.

Considered by many as the greatest country singer of all-time, Jones is a 1992 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee with more than a dozen No. 1 hits to his credit.

Concerts on “The Grand Tour” will feature Jones performing such classics as “White Lightning,” “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes” and “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.”
