Alan Jackson has been forced to postpone the final two shows of his Last Call: One More For The Road Tour. According to his official website, Jackson is currently battling “health issues” related to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a genetic condition that causes nerve damage and affects Jackson’s ability to walk and keep his balance. The artist was diagnosed with the disease over a decade ago.
The affected tour dates include his concert at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday (Oct. 7) and his show at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday (Oct. 8). Jackson shared the following statement for the pair of shows via his official website: “I hoped I’d be able to be there; I hate to disappoint my fans,” Jackson said. “I tried as much as I could to play this show at this time.”
The concert organizers plan to reschedule the show, but a new date has yet to be announced. All tickets for the concert will be honored at the rescheduled date and additional information will be sent to ticket holders via email at a later date.
