While the majority of the tour has been nixed, three shows will go on as planned. According to the publication, shows scheduled at Victory Theatre in Evansville, Indiana (Oct. 17), Island View Casino in Gulfport, Mississippi (Oct. 19) and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (Oct. 28) will still be taking place. The rest of the shows, however, will not.
The Music of Randy Travis Tour will feature country singer James Dupré and the Randy Travis Band, comprised of Steve Hinson, David Johnson, Lance Dary, Bill Cook, Joe Van Dyke and Herb Shucher, singing all 16 of the legendary entertainer’s chart-topping hits. Travis will make a special appearance at each of the three remaining shows.
“We are incredibly excited to be back on the road and give Randy’s fans a chance to hear his music live again, and who better to sing his many hits than James Dupré?” Mary and Randy Travis shared in a statement at the time the original tour was announced.
