Wynonna Judd appears onstage at the Ryman Auditorium to honor the memory of her mother, Naomi Judd, during the "Naomi Judd: A River of Time Celebration" on May 15.

ASHWAUBENON - "Love Can Build a Bridge" and "Love Is Alive" will ring out in the Resch Center this fall as scheduled.

Wynonna Judd announced Sunday during a nationally televised public memorial for her mother Naomi Judd she will carry on with The Judds' The Final Tour, which includes an Oct. 8 concert at the Resch Center.

"After a lot of thought, I'm gonna have to honor her and do this tour. I'm just gonna have to, because that's what you would want," Wynonna said, wiping away tears and her arm outstretched toward the audience at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium during “Naomi Judd: A River of Time Celebration" on CMT. "And Bono once told me, 'Give them what they want, not what you want.'

"Plus, there are 25 hundred roses up here (onstage). So tonight, as we close, I say, 'And the show must go on,' as hard as it may be. And we will show up together. And you will carry me as you carried me for 38 years, once again, because I honestly didn’t think I could do it."

The Country Music Hall of Fame mother-daughter duo had announced plans for The Judds' first tour in more than a decade just weeks before Naomi Judd died by suicide April 30 at age 76.

Martina McBride will perform a full set of her own hits as the opening act on the 11-city The Final Tour, which is set to launch Sept. 30.

Wynonna will be joined by special guests throughout the tour, including Brandi Carlile, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood and others to be announced. The specific guest or guests for the Resch Center stop is not yet known.

“It is pretty amazing – all of the people who have come forward to offer up their time and their gifts. I am feeling extra grateful," Wynonna said in a statement.

Tickets start at $99.50 and are on sale at ticketstaronline.com.
