Alan Jackson’s concert at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Friday is postponed until September. The show will now take place on Saturday, September 14 and all tickets will be honored on the new date.
Officials say Jackson has been dealing with several days of severe spring allergies that have triggered an upper respiratory infection. He wants to deliver nothing less than 100% performance.
This is the second time Jackson has postponed the show. He originally had a schedule for performing last year. However, the show was rescheduled when his son-in-law was killed in an accident.
Jackson has 23 No. 1 country hits. He has also won two Grammy Awards and 19 Academy of Country Music Awards. His most famous songs are “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Remember When,” “Livin’ On Love,” “Don’t Rock the Jukebox,” “Chattahoochee” and others.
Country music is a traditional element of the National Rifle Association’s annual convention. He will be performing as part of this year’s gathering in Indianapolis. Supporting act William Michael Morgan also will perform. The 148th NRA Annual Meetings take place on April 26-28.
The gathering of gun-rights proponents attracted more than 75,000 people to Indianapolis when the city served as the site of the 2014 NRA convention. Jackson previously sang at the 2015 NRA convention in Nashville. He performed at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in February 2018.
