George Jones cancels Shooting Star show again, not rescheduling

Country legend George Jones cancelled his Friday show at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen. The cancellation was due to the 81-year-old’s continued poor health, stated the singer’s management.

“As everyone knows, George has battled with upper respiratory problems all year, which in fact caused the postponement of his show earlier this year,” a statement said. “He has gotten a virus that doctors are treating, but he is unable to perform his weekend at Shooting Star. George apologizes to all his fans for all the inconvenience.”

The show was originally scheduled for April, but postponed due to illness. The show is not being rescheduled.

Those who purchased tickets will receive a full refund in seven to 10 days. For more information call (800) 313-7469.
