Wynonna Judd Pauses Ohio Concert After Nearly Fainting Onstage


During a Saturday night (Feb. 11) The Judds Final Tour stop at Dayton, Ohio's WSU Nutter Center, Wynonna Judd had to pause proceedings after nearly fainting onstage.

"Hang on a second... I am really dizzy," Judd said before receiving assistance from a crew member.

"Hang on! I'm just really dizzy," Judd added. "This has never happened before, so of course it would happen in Ohio."

Judd soldiered on, asking the band to start "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)" before changing her mind and calling off "Mama He's Crazy."


"You know what? If I faint, just take a lot of pictures, okay?," Judd said, keeping her usual sense of humor intact during a scary moment.

Judd sang "Grandpa" while sitting on a stool, with the audience giving her a break by singing the chorus in unison.

"What would I do without you? I'd have to get a real job," Judd responded.

When someone in the crowd suggested that Judd needed some caffeine, she responded: "I don't need a Coke, I need a day off."


By show's end, Judd got escorted off stage by two of the night's special guests: Martina McBride and Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. No word yet on Judds' condition.

Back on New Year's Eve, Judd cancelled a live television duet with Kelsea Ballerini due to an "extreme bout of vertigo."

Tour is scheduled to resume on Thursday (Feb. 16) in Greenville, SC and runs through Feb. 25. The Judds' Final Tour was announced before the April 2022 death by suicide of Judds' mother and bandmate, Naomi.

"The fans have been such a gift during my time of grieving and honoring my mother in song," Judd shared in a press release. "What an amazing season this is. I look so forward to continuing the celebration of the music that has changed my life forever. In my 39 years of performing, these shows have truly been some of my absolute favorite experiences ever and I look forward to making new memories with the fans and guest artists in 2023."
