Wynonna Judd will return to Middle Tennessee State University's (MTSU) Murphy Center to recreate The Judds' 1991 Farewell Tour. The Judds: Love Is Alive – The Final Concert, is set to take place on Thursday, November 3rd and will be filmed to air in March 2023 on CMT. Wynonna will be joined by her current tourmates Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town and Martina McBride, with additional special guests to be announced. Tickets are on sale now at ticketmaster.com, with a portion of proceeds benefiting NAMI Tennessee.
The Judds homecoming to MTSU will mark the largest concert to take place at the Murphy Center since Wynonna and her mother, Naomi Judd, had their final show together on The Judds Farewell Tour over three decades ago, according to a release. The made-for-television event also serves as the kick off to the venue’s year-long 50th anniversary celebration.
Wynonna said, “Stepping onstage at the Murphy Center for the first time since Dec. 4th, 1991 will be so surreal for me. It was an emotional night over 30 years ago and will be an emotional night, for different reasons, now. I can't wait to lean into the nostalgia with the artists who have made this tour so special, and recreate one of the most iconic nights in Judd “Herstory!””
Earlier this week it was announced that The Judds: The Final Tour will continue for a second run into 2023, following its initial 11 date area tour with Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Martina McBride all set to return for select dates, with more special guests to be announced.
