Wynonna Judd has announced that the previously announced “The Judds: The Final Tour” will move forward after the tragic passing of her mother and musical partner Naomi Judd.
Each night, Wynonna will welcome a selection of special guests on stage, including Brandi Carlile, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, McBride, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood, and others to be announced.
Wy said in a press release, “I am humbled, once again, by the loyalty of the fans who have been with us for 38+ years, who continue to show up for me when I need them the most. I am grateful that we will continue to honor The Judd’s legacy together.”
Larry Strickland, Naomi’s longtime husband, added, “I am so happy that in this time of grief for us all, Wynonna has agreed to move forward with this tour as my sweet wife Naomi would have wanted her to do.”
The tour has added a final stop in Lexington, KY, at Rupp Arena on October 29, a homecoming celebration where it all began. Faith Hill will join Wynonna onstage at Rupp Arena to perform some classic songs and honor one of country music’s most essential catalogs. Judd said, “What a full-circle moment it will be to end the tour in Kentucky where it all began. It means so much to have my sister-friend, Faith, join me for this musical celebration.”
She added, “It is pretty amazing – all of the people who have come forward to offer up their time and their gifts. I am feeling extra grateful.”
The 11-date arena tour, produced by Sandbox Live and Live Nation, will commence this Fall in Grand Rapids, MI, at Van Andel Arena on September 30 and run through October, wrapping up with the newly announced performance in The Judd’s home state of Kentucky – Lexington, KY on October 29 at the Rupp Arena.
