Ron White closed the 2022 Sweetland Amphitheater concert season on Sunday night with what may be one of the legendary comedian’s last performances.
The 65-year-old comedian has announced his intention to retire at the end of the year. White is best known for his appearances with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
White is the first comedian to appear at Sweetland and certainly won’t be the last.
“We definitely plan to have more comedians and different types of events in the future,” said Katie Van Schoor, marketing and communications manager at LaGrange, noting that plans are also underway for the children’s shows.
White’s fans packed the Sweetland Amphitheater for one of the last opportunities to see him play. Tickets for the show were nearly sold out before the event.
“That’s the most people I’ve seen for an event at Sweetland,” said Luke Frailey, who attended the show with family members on Sunday night.
The show also included a performance by comedian Chris Voth, who has appeared on Last Comic Standing, Comics Unleashed and the Late Late Show.
The event wraps up the 2022 concert season. The next major event for the site is Sweetland on Ice, which is set to return on November 18. The site is currently working to finalize events for the 2023 season.
“2023 is going to be even better. We plan to have a lot more events in 2023 and a variety of events, not just music,” Van Schoor said.
