Alan Jackson Abruptly Postpones Kansas City Concert


Alan Jackson issued a statement after postponing his Kansas City, Missouri, concert on Saturday night (Aug. 27). The country star was to perform at T-Mobile Center, who stated that he tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the show.

“I’m so sorry I can’t be there tonight,” Jackson shared. “I hate to disappoint my fans.”

Concert promoters plan to reschedule the concert, though no date has been announced. Tickets for Aug. 27 will be honored for the new date.

Jackson is currently on his Last Call: One More for the Road Tour. The trek, which is presented by Jackson’s own Silverbelly Whiskey, kicked off on Friday, June 24 at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, MississippiThe tour has been attracting large crowds, including a Friday night concert for a crowd of more than 11,000 in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The trek marks Jackson’s first major tour since he announced his diagnosis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disorder in the fall of 2021.

“I’ve always admired my heroes like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride who just played as much as they wanted to, as long as they could,” Jackson previously shared. “I’ve always thought I’d like to do that, and I’d like to as long as my health will allow,” he notes, adding with a smile, “I’ll try to do as much as I can, but if I’m comin’ your way, come see me…”

The Last Call: One More for the Road Tour included 30 dates and will wrap up on October 8 in Pittsburgh, PA at PPG Paints Arena.  Jackson is donating $1 for every ticket sold to the CMT Research Foundation. In addition, $1 will be matched by a generous group of CMTRF donors and board members.
