So he's finally sitting down. I hope he never gets like some of the legends I've seen at the end. The band plays forever and then brings out the artist for a couple songs and that's it.

The cheapest seat is $300 for one night. Too rich for my blood. I saw him at the Hollywood Bowl with a 40 piece orchestra. I don't think he ever did there anywhere else. A magical night. I'm hoping they film/video this for a commercial release. They did it for a Jeff Beck concert a couple years back and it's fantastic.

I am pretty sure this will be similar to the Autism Speaks benefit with lots of people coming and going. Willie is not playing for 4 hours back to back nights.

Maybe it was supposed to be a secret, but, according to Tom Bukovak, who’s playing in the house band, Keith is going to be there:

It reminded me when the Stones played the Hollywood Bowl in 2005. He said, "The last time we played here was 1966. The setlist hasn't changed much."

Just had a flashback of being at the Wiltern Theater back in 2004 for the Outlaws and Angels concert.
What a great night it was with Willie, Keith, Toots, Merle, Al Green, Joe Walsh, and Jerry Lee Lewis to name just a few.
Hard to believe it was nearly 20 years ago............to quote a Willie tune - funny how time slips away....

Wish this Willie at 90 celebration event was going to be live streamed, but looking forward to videos and reviews, etc.
And I imagine there will be an official dvd of some sorts in the future...

Meanwhile, Keith and Willie: We Had it All - Wiltern Theater, 2004

It did cross my mind it was Keith, he's been very quiet and has lost weight, not always a good sign at his age, Agreed it's strange he's not participating for Willie Nelsons 90th. Keith the faith.

I heard that he would be at the Willie Nelson 90th - even though he is not on the current "so far" list.

It was not Keith or Ronnie who had the issue earlier this year, causing the tour to be postponsed and then cancelled.


You heard it here first!

Tickets are 2 day tickets only, prices are dropping, I bet if anyone wants to go Sunday only it would be super easy / cheap (a lot of Saturday ticket holders won't go back)

Willie Nelson 90th birthday two-day concert with Chris Stapleton to Snoop Dogg is 'historic music event'

Bryan Alexander
April 29, 2023

Willie Nelson's Los Angeles 90th birthday celebration is headed for the concert history books.

The already power-packed two-night event at the Hollywood Bowl on April 29 (Nelson's actual birthday) and April 30 has blown up to epic proportions with late-breaking additions.

"It's just getting bigger and bigger by the moment," says concert executive producer Keith Wortman. "And if anyone deserves this, it's ole Willie boy."

Nelson and his team have been eyeing this concert date since the music legend's 85th birthday and eventually landed on the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl.

"We thought that this iconic venue would be really cool," says Wortman, who spoke to USA TODAY after watching Nelson rehearse a segment onstage with Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

"These two old friends playing tunes together, that's what makes Willie the happiest," says Wortman. "That's how he's doing his birthday, with all of his friends and family coming up to play together."

Who is playing at Willie Nelson's 90th birthday concert?

The list is staggering, with eclectic acts from Snoop Dogg to Shooter Jennings set to hit the stage to honor Nelson, who is in the seventh-decade of his iconic music career.

"We put a thoughtful list together of all of Willie's close friends and family of musicians that he's either recorded with or toured with," says Wortman. "And that just happens to be a very large list."

That includes Beck, Billy Strings, Bobby Weir, Booker T. Jones, Buddy Cannon, Charley Crockett, Chris Stapleton, Daniel Lanois, Dave Matthews, Dwight Yoakam, Edie Brickell, Emmylou Harris, Gary Clark Jr., George Strait, Jack Johnson, Kris Kristofferson, Leon Bridges, Lily Meola, Lukas Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Margo Price, Miranda Lambert, Neil Young, Norah Jones, Orville Peck, Particle Kid, Rodney Crowell, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Stephen Stills, Sturgill Simpson, The Avett Brothers, The Chicks, The Lumineers, Tom Jones, Tyler Childers and Ziggy Marley.

What other celebrities will honor Willie Nelson?

Due to the Hollywood location, stars such as Chelsea Handler, Ethan Hawke, Gabriel Iglesias, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson will serve as presenters.

The birthday celebrant will perform throughout on both nights and expect many duets, trios and multi-artist jams.

"And we have a few more surprises up our sleeves that we'll keep up our sleeves until they happen at the concert," says Wortman.

It's already the hottest ticket in town and the concert event promises to be talked-about for many Willie Nelson birthdays to come.

"This is truly shaping up to be a historic music event," says Wortman. "I'm not sure if we're going to be wheeling out a cake on the stage, but there's going to be cake somewhere."
