Merle Haggard @ Champions Square

I'm seeing on The Hag's site and a few others an appearance at Champions Square on 6/29. Unable to find any info whatsoever about the show. Anyone have any insider knowledge?

Yep. Saw him a couple years ago and caught George Strait a couple weeks ago before he hangs it up.

Still need to see George Jones and Willie. Most of the others passed before I was old enough.

My parents are going to see him in San Antonio for his last show I believe.

I saw Merle open for Bob Dylan in Connecticut when I was in high school. 2004 maybe, not sure. Since that show I have bought quite a few of his albums and would love to see him again, now that I appreciate his music more.

Amos Lee opened the set before Merle Haggard at that show, it was one good night for music.

Don't guess you caught him in time Slick. I saw him in Biloxi a few years ago. He didn't play very long, but he could still do it. Tons of blue hairs in the house though. I got my toe runned over by a Rascal in the beer line. True story.

re: Merle Haggard @ Champions Square
This will be a reserved seating show with standing room only in the back. Over 4k chairs plus about 1500 standing room available.
