Willie Nelson to Play Nashville Venue for First Time in 43 Years

By  | 

Willie Nelson is returning to a famous Nashville venue for a live concert event for the first time since 1974, having just recently announced that he’ll play the War Memorial Auditorium on January 7, 2016. After having postponed two shows recently due to health concerns, this announcement is timely, as fans, young and old, were growing concerned. With this news, fan fears have been allayed, and Nelson’s performance is greatly anticipated.

Tickets are in the Perfect Price Range.

Tickets for the show began selling December 21st on the War Memorial online box office as well as the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Prices vary, however, the War Memorial site identifies a starting cost of $60, which is quite comparable to a show of this caliber. And what better way to ring in your new year than by celebrating with Willie in Nashville?!

At the age of 83, this country music mainstay keeps churning out the hits and fans keep following because the man’s an icon. Other country singers want to be just like him, and the fans simply want to be in his presence. Recently featured in the Special Edition People Magazine, “Country Music’s Finest, 50 Years of the CMA Awards,” (page 30 if you were lucky enough to get one as a gift for Christmas). Willie is pictured with Charlie Pride and Freddy Fender, accepting one of three awards shared with Waylon Jennings (who was absent from the show) in true Willie-fashion: sporting a casual button-down and of course, his quintessential bandana. The look and the “Wanted! The Outlaws” album were two things his fans felt they could completely relate to.

Give Yourself the Gift of Great Music!
