Bear Listeners will know that for a long time I’ve been wondering if we could get a DVD of the George Jones tribute concert from last November. I found this answer to the question in Parade Magazine.
Q: Can I get a video or CD of the George Jones tribute show in Nashville last year? —Bob Padgett, via Facebook
A: Unfortunately, no release is available. When the legendary country music star died last April at 81, a massive farewell concert that had been planned as his final public performance instead became a posthumous tribute. A lineup of 112 artists played nearly 50 songs at a four-hour jam on Nov. 22 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The concert wasn’t officially recorded, partly because negotiating broadcast and music-sales rights for so many folks would have been prohibitive.
