End of the line for George Jones

The end of the line has come for George Jones. He announced today he’s going to stop touring. From the looks of things, his last appearances in Minnesota may be in November in Mahnomen and Morton, but he also announced a “farewell tour” in 60 cities next year.

The 81-year-old singer has been plagued by health problems for most of his singing life. Earlier this year an upper respiratory infection forced him off the road. The November 8th concert in Mahnomen is a rescheduling of one of the concerts he canceled because of the illness.
