<quoted text>You got to see the last George Jones concert. Knoxville is the final performance for many a musician.
Seems that's so. Knoxville seems to be able to suck the life out of a performer. Some guy, a superstar in Europe, of Sparklehorse I think moved here. He shot himself in the stomach with a shotgun in a grimy downtown Knoxville alley two days later.

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!!!!!!!!!!
I am an idiot. I should have walked down and leaned on the front of the stage. When security showed up, I should have told them to get you inconsiderate jackasses out of the aisle. They should have let the hundred or more you were preventing from seeing the stage out of the damned aisle. We paid forty one dollars+ to see and hear George Jones. We didn't drive sixty miles to see a bunch of idiots like you. I saw him front row center aisle in Nasville at about ten to twelve feet. I will treasure that memory of seeing the greatest country singer of all time. No one goes to see concerts and pay good money to see a bunch of sub-morons standing between them and the performer. You are not who people go to concerts to see. I do assume you're not Alan Jackson. If you want to be seen do your own concert and let people freely decide if they want to see you.I don't ,in the least, regret walking out on seeing two hundred fat rear ends. I greatly respect George Jones for doing the show when he was in great pain and should have been under medical care in a good hospital.

Legend has it that he died at the Andrew Johnson and his manager got him out in the dead of night and headed toward Bristol because Knox County would have required a coroners inquest to be performed on the body.

Also, Sergei Rachmaninoff played his last concert at Alumni Hall. He died a few months later in California.

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.
I got to see George Jones walk out on stage. He said he needed to sit down. I never got to see him again after he sat down. The stage would have to have been fifteen feet above floor level to see him from my forty one dollar seat. Concert workers told me there were plenty of seats in the rear and I could sit there. Why should I have to sit in the back of the auditorium when we bought tickets for up front. I don't regret in the least walking out of his last concert.I had the best seat in the world in Nashville to see and hear him. We had center stage front row seats. At no more than fifteen feet, it was almost like a personal concert.I treasure that memory. Rest in peace George. To the rest of you assholes, " May A Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose."

No show Jones would have done ev99eryone 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 Came in this morning
Mom was in the floor.. Cldnt get up... Tried to get out of bed . walker was kind of out of reach... She slid to the floor... She didnt fall
Just so everyone knows.. No fall.. Just slid to the floor.. I got her up of a bunch of hair-brained idiots. I wish I had taken a good pellet pistol with me.I believe ones 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.
Im so glad to have see his bery last dhow EVER which was THIS VERY SHOW, RIP George ur true fans still loved the show,,

My favorite George Jones story has got to the "riding lawnmower incident". That alone should put George in the Country Music Hall of Fame!
