George Jones

We just saw George in concert at Renfro Valley this weekend and I have to say, his health is really bad. We were so disappointed. He could barely whisper let alone sing. I think he should retire, I don't know that he will ever get his voice back from the illness he had. How sad that the last memory we will have of him is how he absolutely could not sing and struggled through the entire concert. His band held him up and carried him through. I can't believe we actually paid to sit through such an awful performance. Everyone was very polite and made no comments out of Respect for George but I know we were all thinking the same thing, when will this end. A lot of product pushing was going on also. We bought a CD that was supposed to be sixteen of his number one hits from a live concert and three of the songs were instrumental. I just feel really let down and disappointed that he didn't have the good sense to cancel his tour until or if he ever gets a voice back, but he man we saw this weekend was not even close to the George Jones that we know and love. HOW SAD!!!

I've read other reviews of his recent concerts, and find it just heartbreaking. I had concert tickets to see him about a month ago in Huntington, WV & it was cancelled. From the sounds of it, George needs to cancel all of his shows the rest of this year. Maybe he would be able to get in better health & voice & be able to do his farewell tour next year. There will never be another singer like George Jones. But, like you, I'd rather remember him as the great singer he used to be.
