Jackson cancels show Sunday
Sunday, July 22, 2012
– Alan Jackson's show tonight in Anderson, Cal. was canceled, although the reason was not so clear.
Jackson had to postpone Friday's show in Los Angeles at the Greek Theatre due to bacterial sinus, respiratory and bronchial infections. The concert will be this Wednesday, July 25. He performed as scheduled in Salinas, Cal. last night.
As for tonight's cancelation, Jackson wrote on his web site, "Following early morning e-mails from the promoter of the Jukebox Music Festival, Alan Jackson will not be performing as planned this evening in Anderson, CA. Jackson, his band and crew were on-site this morning, ready to load in and prepare for the show, but he will regretfully not be performing. Citing the postponement of Jackson's Friday show in Los Angeles, the promoter felt that this impacted ticket sales, even though Jackson played a sold-out show in Salinas, CA Saturday night. Jackson is sorry to disappoint his fans who had expected to see him tonight, but the trucks and buses will turn around and head to Los Angeles, where he is playing his rescheduled Greek Amphitheatre concert on Wednesday."

In an age of rock and rap meshing with country, Jackson will have none of that on this meat-and-potatoes rendering. Jackson's viewpoint has always been about the simple truths of life. He makes that clear in the leadoff track, ...
Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album." The traditional country singer has "gone bluegrass," although the idea of a bluegrass disc should not come off as all that far fetched. Yes, there's no pedal steel here, but the sounds, subject and voice are not very different from a typical AJ disc.
And this is not the first time that Jackson has veered off the straight and narrow path as his gospel albums indicated. ...
