‘Nashville’ Announces Farewell Tour in the UK
Following the news that Nashville will come to an end in 2018, the cast has the chance to say goodbye to their fans overseas with a final tour in the United Kingdom in April of 2018.
Returning cast members on the Nashville in Concert: 2018 UK Tour are Charles Esten, Clare Bowen, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson and Chris Carmack, who will join together for a six-date farewell tour that crosses the UK and includes stops in Manchester, Glasgow and London's O2 Arena. The tour launches on April 14 in Birmingham and concludes on April 21 in London.
“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. 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," Opry Entertainment President Steve Buchanan says in a press release.

CMT announced in November of 2017 that Season 6 of Nashville will be the show's last. The 2018 U.K. tour marks the third consecutive year members of the cast have brought the music of Nashville to their fans in Europe.
“Because of social media, people know us as more than our characters. They know me from my music as well, so it’s a wonderful combination of that and they get to see us on stage together. It’s quite a party and we’re real lucky to get to do it," Esten told Taste of Country ahead of the international tour in 2017.
The show's final 16-episode season premieres on Jan. 4 at 9PM ET on CMT and will conclude sometime in the summer.
