GEORGE JONES FINAL NASHVILLE SHOW OPENS UP LIMITED SEATING

03/06/13

Limited Seats Go On Sale Friday at 10:00 am


George Jones’ final show, which previously sold out with over 12,000 tickets, is releasing a limited number of seats that will be located behind and to the side of the stage. Those tickets will go on sale this Friday morning at 10 am (CST) through TicketMaster and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office.

“The phone at the house and the fan club have rung off the hook, since the show sold out,” says George Jones. “They asked me to do another show, but that was not going to happen because there can only be one final show. After thinking about all those fans not being able to get in, I told Nancy to make those seats behind and the side of the stage available. And that is what we are going to do!”
