A concert that was billed as country icon George Jones' last will now be staged as a tribute to the late singer/songwriter.

Jones, who died last month (Apr13), had planned to wrap up his final tour with a star-studded concert in November (13) at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and now the big names who had signed up for the show will take the stage without the headliner.

The late star's widow Nancy says, "Everyone has been asking if we will still do the show. I have asked Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson and others and they all said, 'Yes, I am still going to do it'.

"So, with all the artists still planning on coming, we are going to honour George one final time."

In his last-ever interview, Jones told Country Weekly magazine he was looking forward to the November gig: "Hopefully, we're going to sell out the Bridgestone with the help of Kid Rock and a bunch of others. We're going to have all kinds of music, and I wanted it to be that way, because that's what Nashville is."
