With the recent announcement of the cancellation of CMT’s hit drama series, “Nashville,” the stars of the show are planning a farewell tour in 2018, that will take them to the United Kingdom.
Kicking off on April 14 in Birmingham, England, the tour will feature cast members Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio singing songs from the series as well as some of their original tunes. The tour will make stops in Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff, wrapping at London’s O2 Arena.
“The cast of ‘Nashville’ have become tremendous ambassadors and representatives of a city that they now love. They carry with them the spirit of the city and its music,” said Steve Buchanan, president, Opry Entertainment. “The 2018 UK Tour will be bittersweet for our cast of amazing actors, singers and songwriters as they share the stage together for one last farewell to the fans.”
“Nashville” originally aired on ABC before being cancelled after four seasons in 2016. CMT picked up the show for the fifth season and announced the return for a sixth season, set to air in January 2018, before announcing that the sixth season will be the show’s final season.
