The Judds Announce Their Final Tour
This fall, legendary mother and daughter duo the Judds will tour together for the first time in 10 years. The Final Tour is a 10-date trek across America.
Naomi and Wynonna Judd will begin their tour on Sept. 30 in Grand Rapids and wrap a month later in Nashville, playing arenas along the way. Martina McBride will open for the soon-to-be Country Music Hall of Fame act. Tickets go on sale on April 15 at the Judds website.
This is the third time the Judds have attempted to put a period on their career. In 1991, they played what was billed as their final show after Naomi Judd (now 76 years old) was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Wynonna Judd, 57, would go on to enjoy 10 years of success as a solo artist while her mother battled the disease and raised awareness. Her health allowed her to return to the stage on New Year's Eve in 1999, after which they'd reunite for the Power to Change Tour.
Ten years later, the Last Encore Tour was billed as the last tour. While it is the last time they hit the road together, they would meet up in Las Vegas in 2015 for a nine-show Girls Night Out residency at the Venetian.
Fans won't have to wait until September to to see them play live, however — on Monday night (April 11), the Judds will sing "Love Can Build a Bridge" during the CMT Music Awards on CBS.
The pair have always been known for their stunning harmonies, but also their humor on stage. Musically, they have 14 No. 1 hits of 25 singles released to radio across two decades.
