Country Music Hall of Famer and global superstar Wynonna Judd has announced that the highly anticipated, previously announced “The Judds: The Final Tour” will move forward after the tragic passing of her mother and musical partner Naomi Judd. “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 Judds legacy, together,” Wynonna shared. Larry Strickland, Naomi’s longtime husband adds, “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 11-date arena tour, produced by Sandbox Live and Live Nation, will commence this Fall, stopping in Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena on October 22nd where country music icon Martina McBride will kick off the night with a full set of her own classic hits before Wynonna takes the stage to sing some of her own hits and songs by The Judds.
Wynonna has chosen to honor her mother’s legacy by inviting some of music’s biggest stars to join her onstage to perform some of the timeless hits that earned The Judds multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM awards over a span of 30+ years. The special guest coming to Dickies Arena for the tribute has not been released to date, however looking at the potential list of names, Fort Worth will be more than pleased to witness such a tribute.
