George Jones Plans Farewell Tour

George Jones has returned to the road following upper respiratory infection earlier this year but he has announced plans to launch a farewell tour next year and plans to release a new album. Webster sent over these details:

In 2013, George Jones will mark the end of an era with a farewell tour for his fans titled "The Grand Tour". After over fifty years of touring, Jones has decided he is ready to slow down and spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Jones was quoted as saying "It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come". As a tribute to his loyal fans he wants to tour one more year and let them know, this will be his last.

The Grand Tour will visit approximately 60 cities in 2013. The star will perform many of his hits such as "White Lightning," "He Stopped Loving Her Today," "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" and "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair".

Jones also plans to record a new studio album for the fans, and Dolly Parton has been writing songs for him. It will be an album he loves and wants to do. There is no scheduled street date at this time.
