The show is set for November 22nd in Nashville
More proof Garth Brooks is itching to come out of his self-imposed retirement comes Tuesday (Feb 22nd) when it was announced that he will participate in George Jones’ final concert in Nashville. The farewell takes place Friday, November 22nd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Music Row Magazine reports that Nashville will be the final stop on Jones’ The Grand Tour which visits more than 40 cities throughout the trek. Brooks is one of many special guests already booked for the finale including Kid Rock, Shelby Lynne, The Oak Ridge Boys, Sam Moore, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Lorrie Morgan and many more.
No word yet on what the extent of Brooks’ participation will be. As cool as it would be for him to open the show with his own set, it’s highly unlikely given the amount of special guests appearing with more expected to be added. The more realistic scenario is that he’ll join Jones on stage to perform their hit “Beer Run (B Double E Double R U In)” and/or some other collaboration including Jones’ “I Don’t Need Your Rocking Chair” that Brooks sang on in the early 90s. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
