BANGOR, Maine — Hank Williams Jr. has added an Oct. 12 concert at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor to his schedule.

In June, on the same day it was announced that Hank Williams Jr. would be performing on the Bangor Waterfront in August, concert organizers sent a news announcement saying the performance had been “postponed due to technical issues.”

They offered no additional information at the time as to why the Aug. 3 concert had been postponed.

New ticket prices also have been announced and range from $33.75-$69.75, which doesn’t include potential processing fees depending on where tickets are purchased. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 23.

The only son of country legend Hank Williams, who transformed country music, Williams Jr., now 64, has 20 gold albums, six platinum albums — one of which has sold more than five million copies — and 13 chart-topping albums under his belt.

In 1989, Williams’ manager arranged a deal with ABC’s Monday Night Football to have the country star rework “All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight” into a theme song to be performed before each Monday night game. Two years later, the Monday Night theme won the first of four straight Emmy Awards, and Williams remained the performance voice of Monday Night Football.

His most recent album, Old School New Rules, was released in 2012. And even those who aren’t country music fans likely have heard Williams’ “Country Boy Can Survive,” “Born to Boogie,” and “My Name is Bocephus.”
