It looks like Willie Nelson is throwing the most star-studded birthday party ever seen, and it’s happening in Los Angeles. To celebrate the country icon’s 90th birthday, Neil Young, Chris Stapleton, Snoop Dogg, Beck, Bobby Weir, Billy Strings, Kacey Musgraves, Lyle Lovett, Margo Price, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Sturgill Simpson, the Chicks, The Avett Brothers, Ziggy Marley, Tom Jones, Charley Crockett, Edie Brickell, Nathaniel Rateliff, Miranda Lambert, Leon Bridges, Allison Russell, Norah Jones, Orville Peck, The Lumineers, Tyler Childers, Warren Haynes, his two kids Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson aka Particle Kid (and more performers TBA) will share the magnificent Hollywood Bowl’s stage for two days.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend my 90th birthday than being surrounded by family, friends, and of course the fans who made this all possible,” Nelson said in a statement. “It’s an honor to perform with such an incredible group of artists at such an iconic venue.”
The concert, named “Long Story Short” will be held for two days (April 29 and 30), and if you are like me, you probably imagined the 30th to be a repeat of the 29th, but it seems that Ticketmaster is only selling 2-day tickets. With so many performers on the bill, it makes sense that the complete celebration will last for two days and many hours. So far, no more details have been made available.
As for the ticket prices? I fear the worst. It will be a very coveted event so be prepared to pay $200? $300? $400? Even for a nosebleed ticket.
Today, there was a presale for CapitalOne Card holders, but more presales are happening tomorrow at 10 AM: an artist presale with passcode WILLIE90 and a Live Nation presale with passcode LNHS. Otherwise, the general sale is happening on Saturday, at 10 AM. Good luck!
