<quoted text>I say you inconsiderate but-holes ruined the George Jones concert for me. After about 15 to 20 minutes of sitting in my forty one dollar seat, I got up and left.After I had looked at 300 asses blocking my view of George Jones on stage, I got up and left the arena.If you want to take pictures, buy you a good camera that will let you keep your fat ass from blocking other fans view of the concert. Arena employees asked me if I would have a seat in the rear where I could see. By that time, I was so mad I wouldn't have went back in if they had paid me. In the future, the civic coliseum can sell their tickets to fools willing to look at 300 asses instead of the performers.
How could we ruin the concert for you when your sorry fake fan ass left after 15 minutes? We weren't sitting in as good of seats as you and we had a much harder time seeing George than you did. I had a man that looked like Pluto, a crazy psycho woman who was probably drunk and strung out on cocaine, and a bunch of drunken fools who couldn't sit still at all blocking our view of most of the show. We had worse seats than you and we stayed through the whole concert, so get over yourself, PLEASE! I would have loved to trade seats with you and put up with the little inconvenience that you all had. The stage was much higher than all those people in he aisle, so you should have still been able to see and hear him! We heard him loud and clear and were much farther away. Also, 300 people could not have possibly fit in those aisles.

I am done on here, because I am tired of wasting my time on a bunch of fake George Jones fans who want to do nothing but whine and complain about something that you didn't even hang around for.

~PEACE OUT~ REAL GEORGE JONES FAN!!!!!!!!!!

We were there at the concert, my wife and I and I have to say that George Jones did an excellent job performing and I respect him for the efforts that he put in. It was our first time seeing him and I have no regrets at all. Only a FAKE fan would walk out after 15 minutes of the show. I could understand someone doing so, IF he had been sloppy drunk and falling all over the place. He is 81 years old and recently had back surgery. He made the tickets affordable for his fans and even took the time to autograph pictures for every fan who bought a t-shirt. I paid just as much money as the people who were on the front row and we were on the floor, just a little farther back. Our seats was not great because we had to look over peoples heads, so just right before the last song "He Stopped Loving Her Today", we went up toward the front through one of the isle's. I feel like we were just as entitled to seeing George up close and personal as the next person was. Ultimately it is up to the artist and the security and not the fans as to who gets to do what, so as far as the first persons comment is concerned, all I got to say is cry me a river!!! Also, you had better be careful when talking about shooting any type of gun at anyone, because with all the talk about gun control, you could get yourself in a world of trouble. The last thing I am going so is that George Jones did an excellent job and as a true fan, I would definitely go back and see him again. Well worth the money spent, NO REGRETS HERE!!!!!!!!!!
I have never been drunk in my life and I have never been stupid enough to stand in a mob of fools and ruin everyone else's opportunity to see and hear a great entertainer. If you buy a ticket to see and hear George Jones perform, I should have enough sense to let you see and hear him. I have been to other George Jones concerts and I haven't had to look at a herd of rear ends.Personally, I don't give a damn what you think about my dislike for a bunch of idiots stealing my opportunity to get what I paid for.

Have you people even been to a concert before? People in the floor seats are going to stand up, it's just the nature of the beast. That's why I try to get side stage seats. Make a note to yourself to do that next time and quit your bitchin. The Possum deserves more respect than this.

I ruined NOTHING for you! You weren't even there during the last song when I walked up there. How could anyone in the aisle block your view unless they were standing in FRONT of your seat? People standing BESIDE your seat aren't going to block your view. If the Knoxville Civic Coliseum employees/management really thought that views were getting blocked, don't you think they would have gotten security to make everyone leave???
You idiot, I left before you waddled down to stand in front of everyone else. Our two seats were close to the aisle. A whole herd of jackasses filled the aisle in front of us until we couldn't see a damned thing but bunch of idiots asses. No, I didn't stay until you made your journey down to block everyone's view in 2A, Row B. Our two 41.75 tickets weren't worth anything due to you people who didn't get a seat where you should have been able to see George Jones very well.There were people complaining all around us and one man got up from his seat and told that mob to quit blocking the stage.That helped for about a minute until another crowd of jackasses replaced the ones he cleared out.Since you didn't have my seat you don't know what we were putting up with.In the future, as for me, the Civic Coliseum can take their tickets and go to Hell with them. Now, I am going to quit answering inconsiderate,idiots who think they are the only people on earth with any rights.

We were on the right side of the stage.We saw George Jones perform in Nashville when we had front row center seats. We were so close there wouldn't have been room for people to walk in front of us. George Jones was on stage no more than fifteen feet away from us and directly in front of us. Regardless of where you are seated, you have bought the right to see and hear George Jones perform.We saw George Jones, Vern Gosdin, and Conway Twitty in Knoxville. We didn't leave our far back seats to ruin everyone else's enjoyment of these great entertainers. There won't be a next time for me to attend anything in the Civic Auditorium.I can do without them and they seem to think they don't need paying patrons. The first time I saw them there the arena was packed.This time there were empty seats all over the arena.It would have been much better to watch Geoge Jones videos on Youtube.

You all that are wining about people walking down the aisles are the biggest bunch of cry babies I have ever seen in my entire life. With all the stuff that is going on the world and all you want to do is bitch and complain about people blocking your view, it is really pathetic. You all really need to get a life and grow up!

YOU ARE ONE DUMB ASS!!! The stage was much higher than any of the people in the aisles. I would have gladly traded my seat for yours. I would have never left the show, but it just shows the lack of maturity on your part for doing so.

You are simply a liar. I could see a bunch of rear ends and George Jones was visible for a second or two when the crowd shifted.

I hope the few of you here who have been bitchin' are happy now, considering you walked out early on the FINAL performance given by one of the top 10 country artists of all time. Congrats. The butts won because you refused to stand up, and you missed the Possum's last show.
Think of that the next time your own butt is riding a John Deere mower.

He is one of the few country artists I wanted to see and did not get the chance. No matter if someone liked his music or not, he was one of the greatest country singers of all time. I was planning on going to the nov Nashville show but with all his health problems, I kinda expected it.
RIP Ole Possum, you are singing' in heaven and don't need no rocking chair or no oxygen either!

Those idiots who stood in the aisle and completely blocked our view of the stage stole our right to see and hear his final concert. We didn't give forty one dollars per seat and drive sixty miles to see two hundred fat asses. May George rest in peace. May those who ruined our opportunity to see and hear George Jones' final concert sometime get the treatment they gave us.
always love George

the last concert I went to, I had center stage, 7 rows back And I only kept my seat until he walked on stage. I've only bought tickets a handful of times, the other 2 dozen or so times, I've stood at the gates the separate the outdoor arena from the fairgrounds. Seeing him up close, getting his autograph, and shaking his hand was truly special to me. But being such a fan, even missing out on all the state fair rides and fun wasn't enough to tear me away from hearing that amazing voice and catching glimpses of that shiny silver hair.

I consider myself blessed to have front row center seats at a George Jones concert in Nashville Tn. To have The greatest country singer of all time performing 12 to 15 feet in front of us was an unbelievable experience. The seats were very close to the stage with only room to walk between the seats and the stage.I remember George Jones when he was on Starday Records singing "the seasons come, the seasons go, we get a little sunshine rain and snow. I believe I still have the album. He had not achieved the great voice control and voice range at that time. George Jones took his God given talent and entertained millions of people who never could attend one of his concerts. In the last years of his life he came to understand the importance of seeking God. His testimony is on youtube and there is a sincerity about George's effort to get close to God. RIP George and may you harmonize in that land where heartaches and troubles never enter.I regret being behind a wall of people and not getting to see and hear George Jones' last concert. The arena should insure every one who pays for a seat isn't completely blocked from seeing the performers. I got to see the second generation Statlers perform before George came on stage without being blocked. I believe they have a good future. Country music needs real country singers instead of this racket being peddled as country music. Real country reaches down and touches the heart and soul of listeners. This new stuff has patrons reaching for ear plugs and the nearest exit.

Lovely posts about George! Joe, could not agree more bout the new country music. It is not country and except for a few artists, the rest is useless. The arena should have controlled the crowd better but that is usually how that arena works. RIP ole Possum!

We should sue the Knoxville civic coliseum. If the fifty to one hundred people who paid for the right to see and hear George Jones' concert sued them, the next concert patrons might get to see and hear the concert. Fifteen to twenty minutes of having the stage view blocked by a bunch of fat rear ends was all I could tolerate. We got up and left. As Little Jimmy Dickens sung, may a bird of paradise fly up their idiotic noses.Hopefully, while it's there it will defecate thoroughly in your sinuses and down your chests.
fine job

No show Jones would have done everyone a favor if he had not shown up for his Knoxville concert Saturday night. He was physically unable to perform. We had two row eight seats and all we got to see was a bunch of idiots standing in the aisle. Who wants to give forty dollars for a concert ticket and only get to see the fat rear ends of a bunch of hair-brained idiots. I wish I had taken a good pellet pistol with me.I believe one lead pellet stuck an inch deep in one of those idiots rear ends would have cleared the aisle and let other paying patrons see George Jones try to perform. After about 15 minutes ,I got up and left the audience area. I went up to a lobby with chairs and tables and waited a few minutes for my companion to leave also. I will not be back to that arena. If they offer me a free ticket to see a grasshopper eat a three hundred pound bale of hay in 5 minutes, I will say no thanks.
You got to see the last George Jones concert. Knoxville is the final performance for many a musician.

I bet you idiots that walked out feel pretty darn stupid now, don't you? You walked out on George Jones' FINAL concert. I have no regrets at all for doing what I did at the end of the show and walking up closer to see him close for the last and only time. Those are memories that I will cherish forever. All of you who walked out are pathetic.

Suing the coliseum?????? LMBO! That should go really well, let us know how much of an idiot they make out of you!!!!!!!!!!
