Saint Paul, MN - It’s LAST CALL: ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD! Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson is embarking on his latest tour, one that’ll bring over 30 years of hits to cities across America as he hits the road for the first time since revealing a health diagnosis last fall.
“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 says. “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 country music icon will launch his Last Call: One More for the Road Tour – promoted by Live Nation – this summer, playing arenas through the fall (detailed listing below). The three-time CMA Entertainer of the Year will thrill audiences – visiting cities and areas he hasn’t in several years for the last time – as fans relive hits like “Chattahoochee” and “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” night-after-night.
Tickets, fan club presale, and tour information for Alan Jackson’s Last Call: One More for the Road Tour are available at alanjackson.com/tour. Most cities go on sale Friday, March 18. Jackson will team with CID Entertainment/OnLocation to offer VIP experiences at his 2022 shows. Top-tier packages include a pre-show party presented by AJ’s Good Time Bar, the Nashville honky-tonk owned and operated by the entertainer in the heart of Music City, highlighted by live music from James Carothers and Cory Farley, featured performers from AJs.
Citi is the official card of the Last Call: One More for the Road Tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, March 15 through the Citi Entertainment program. For complete presale details visit citientertainment.com.
Jackson’s Last Call: One More for the Road Tour follows his Fall 2021 announcement (on NBC’s TODAY) that he is living with CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth), a chronic inherited neuropathy condition that results in nerve deterioration and hampers muscle function, movement and balance. $1 from every ticket sold for the Last Call: One More for the Road Tour will be donated to the CMT Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt organization that funds research for drug development. In addition, $1 will be matched by a generous group of CMTRF donors and board members.
Alan Jackson’s music and performances have gained him worldwide acclaim, from critics and fans alike. In 2022, he’ll continue his long-running tradition of “keepin’ it country” as he brings over 30 years of hits to a city near you once more. It’s Last Call: One More for the Road!
