Posted on the official Jerry lee Lewis facebook yesterday:

I'm coming back to Memphis on November 7th. This very special concert event at the Cannon Center is with the author of my new biography, Rick Bragg. If you get your tickets fast you can get a signed copy of my book "Jerry Lee Lewis - His Own Story" and get my new CD "Rock & Roll Time". - Jerry Lee

A two year tour? With how many shows? 1 show every 2 months isn't a tour (I wouldn't even call 1 show per week a tour).

It will be nice to see The Killer seemingly performing on a regular basis again. Though I do wonder if he's up for it, one also has to wonder if this could be the final "tour"

I'm sure Jerry could physically cope with doing (say) 1 or 2 shows every week, particularly if US-based. It's not going to happen though, nor is there EVER going to be a farewell tour / concert. He'll keep playing until the very end, albeit only very occasionally.

His wife Judith just posted this:
"TO ALL OUR FANS THAT WERE WATING FOR MY JERRY LEE LEWIS..HE IS TOO WEAK TO MAKE THE SHOW...HIS BACK WENT OUT AT 4 O CLOCK....AND HE STILL WAS TRYING....HE WAS DRESSED AND COULD NOT MAKE IT TO THE FRONT DOOR...AND HE DID NOT WANT TO FALL OUT OR WORSE ON STAGE. JERRY LEE'S WORDS....THIS IS FROM HIM DIRECTLY...I am pushed to my limit...but was trying to make it for all MY WONDERFUL FANS.....I WILL DO A SHOW NEXT FRIDAY OR SATURDAY...AND MAKE IT UP TO YOU ALL...I kept thinking I could do it...kept telling Judith to let me wait 15 minutes more...then my back pain was so bad ....I still tried for 2 hours every 15 minutes...PLEASE FORGIVE ME...AND I AM SORRY....I am going to rest and go to HOSPITAL OR EMERGENCY ORTHOPEDIC clinic tomorrow....GOD BLESS YOU ..ALL AND I LOVE YOU...PLEASE UNDERSTAND..YOURS,,,JERRY LEE LEWIS"

Get well soon, Killer!

How sad for the little kid, and others who came from all over the world, and can't make the new show. If there's gonna be one. And sad for Jerry of course, I had the idea he was enjoying all the publicity and succes recently and this would be a special moment, home coming in Memphis to promote the new album. Thought Judith said something about back problems but Memphis Commercial talks about stomach. Let's hope The Killer recovers soon, though if theyre talking about an operation...I always though surgery in the back is risky specially when you're older.

She should've sang some songs (we all know Linda Gail would've if she'd been there). :wink:

thanks for the photo ! a shame for Annie - would have been a big night for her opening the show.
