Organizers Plan to Reschedule; All Tickets Will Be Honored
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) Country music superstar Alan Jackson’s concert at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ – scheduled for this Friday, October 7 – is being postponed. The country music icon is dealing with some health issues related to the neurological condition (Charcot-Marie-Tooth, also known as CMT) he’s been living with for several years.
“I hoped I’d be able to be there; I hate to disappoint my fans,” the Country Music Hall of Fame member says. “I tried as much as I could to play this show at this time.” Fans should hold on to their tickets as they will be honored for the new date in 2023 once announced. More information will be sent to ticketholders via email.
Jackson publicly acknowledged his neuropathy diagnosis in an interview with Today host Jenna Bush Hager a year ago, explaining to fans, “It’s been affecting me for years. And it’s getting more and more obvious.” Citing such personal heroes as Merle Haggard, George Jones and Charley Pride, Jackson noted, “They never retired; just played as much as they could…I would like to do that if my health will let me.”
Jackson’s Last Call: One More for the Road Tour has been an enormous success, playing to sellout crowds since launching earlier this summer, including more than 25,000 people this past weekend alone. A $1 from every ticket sale is being donated to donated to the CMT Research Foundation and is being matched by a group of CMTRF donors and board members.
