Knoxville — Aretha Franklin never played in Knoxville, but was scheduled to perform at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum in 1968.

The city of Knoxville posted the concert poster on its Facebook page.

According to the poster, it was scheduled for September 27th. The city said her show was canceled due to a scheduling conflict, according to the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound.
