This summer, artists across the country started hitting the road and rocking shows. After more than a year of staying home and waiting, the gates opened and they were back on stage. However, some of country music’s biggest names are yet to embark on a tour. Recently, George Strait announced a handful of shows between this fall and 2022. It looks like Alan Jackson is preparing to hit the road as well.
Earlier today, Alan Jackson took to Twitter to make a cryptic post, which contains a photo along with a short caption. It could mean just about anything. However, we’re pretty sure that AJ is waiting to announce some upcoming live shows. Check out the post below and see for yourself.
The photo shows Alan Jackson standing, seemingly alone, on a darkened stage. A spotlight shines over the country legend as he plays his guitar. The photo alone makes us long to see AJ playing his hits and some other fan-favorites to a packed house. However, the caption he added to the post puts that excitement through the roof.
In the caption, Alan Jackson simply wrote, “Coming soon…” I can’t remember the last time those two words got me so pumped.
Alan Jackson planned to play two live shows this month. The first of those would have been tonight at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. The other would have been tomorrow at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. However, he had to cancel both of those shows. Currently, his website notes that he will play Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on October 8th.
Looking Back at Alan Jackson’s Recent Live Shows
Back in June, Alan Jackson took the stage in his hometown of Newnan, Georgia for a good cause. He headlined a benefit concert to raise money to help the small town recover from a massive tornado. Jackson and some special guests brought great country music to the stage and his fans brought their big hearts and open wallets. When it was all said and done, the Where I Come From Tornado Benefit Show raised over $2 million to help Newnan residents.
In August, Alan Jackson played a handful of shows in the Mid-West to support his latest album Where Have You Gone. Jackson brought his brand of neotraditional country music to Springfield, Missouri and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
During one of those shows, Alan Jackson created a priceless memory for one young fan. Jackson spotted a young fan holding a sign saying that it was his first-ever concert. So, AJ brought him up on stage and posed for a photo with him.
Today, we’re waiting with bated breath for Alan Jackson to announce that he’s ready to get back out on the road and make more memories with even more fans.
