Alan Jackson Announces One Final Return To Touring

May 31, 2024 - News

Alan Jackson has announced the first run of dates on his upcoming Last Call: One More for the Road Tour, announcing ten dates in the US.

In 2022, Jackson played in sold-out standing-room-only rooms across the US. His 2024-2025 tour will visit an initial list of ten arenas in American cities, marking the last time he’ll perform his three-decade-plus career of hits in those areas.

The first five dates take place this year, with Jackson travelling to TD Garden in Boston, MA (Friday, 2 August), Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI (Saturday, 24 August), Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville, AR (Saturday, 28 September), T-Mobile Centre in Kansas City, MO (Saturday, 26 October), and the Delta Centre in Salt Lake City on Saturday, 16 November.

From there, Jackson’s tour continues into 2025, starting at the Paycom Centre in Oklahoma City, OK (Saturday, 18 January), Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, TX (Saturday, 15 February), the Kia Centre in Orlando, FL (Friday, 7 March), Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL (Saturday, 26 April), and the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, 17 May.

Tickets for all dates go on sale on Friday, 7 June, via Alan Jackson’s website. A dollar from each ticket purchased will be donated to the CMT Research Foundation, and a generous group of CMTRF donors will match each dollar.

“Fans know when they come to my shows, they’re going to hear the songs that made me who I am – the ones they love,” Jackson commented in a press release. “I’ve been touring for over 30 years – my daughters are all grown, we have one grandchild and one on the way… and I’m enjoying spending more time at home. But my fans always show up to have a good time, and I’m going to give them the best show I can for this Last Call.”

In 2021, Jackson revealed his diagnosis of the chronic neuropathy condition CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth), a degenerative nerve condition that is impacting his ability to tour and perform.

“I’ve been reluctant to talk about this publicly and to my fans, but I have this neuropathy – a neurological disease that’s genetic that I inherited from my daddy,” Jackson told Jenna Bush Hager on NBC’s Today. “There’s no cure for it, but it’s been affecting me for years. And it’s getting more and more obvious.”

“It’s not going to kill me – it’s not deadly,” Jackson said, explaining CMT is related to such things as muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease.

“I know I’m stumbling around onstage, and now I’m having a little trouble balancing even in front of a microphone. I was starting to get so self-conscious up there… so if anybody’s curious why I don’t walk right, that’s why. I just wanted the fans and the public to know. I don’t want ’em to think I’m drunk onstage because I’m having problems with mobility and balance.”
