“This is it,” singer Pat Boone says as he walks off the Coach House stage on Saturday. His farewell performance will take place in Southern California, not far from where he has resided for over 60 years.
Boone recently told a Florida caller, “I mean, I won’t promise anything except I won’t promise anything,” his father used to say.
Because he said, “As sure as your word, you make a promise, and then you can’t keep it.”
“But I am contemplating this being my last concert on the West Coast,” he says, after appearances in Branson, Missouri, and his birthplace of Nashville. He goes on to say that’s the end of it for good.
