Surprise! No-Show Jones Cancels Concert

Can I drink this thing?
  • "Can I drink this thing?"

We picked country legend George Jones' appearance at the Akron Civic Theatre tonight as one of the week's don't-miss concerts.

Well, hope you have a backup plan: the singer known as No-Show Jones, you guessed it, won't be showing up tonight.

Word is he's having problems with his voice or something like that. But seeing that Jones has a history of canceling gigs at the last second, we'll just chalk it up to part of his legacy. Or you can just blame it on the booze (or maybe he's doing coke again?).

Whatever the reason, Jones won't performing in Akron tonight. So find something else to do. His show will be rescheduled for sometime next year. But we wouldn't place any bets on him showing up for that one either. —Michael Gallucci
