Willie Nelson

Today, April 29th, 2024, we celebrate the 91st birthday of Willie Nelson, an artist whose impact on music and culture stretches far beyond the strings of his beloved guitar, Trigger. As a cornerstone of Americana and outlaw country, Willie's contributions to music are immense, but his legacy is also marked by deep philanthropy and a commitment to societal issues.


Music legend Willie Nelson is bringing his celebrated 4th of July Picnic to Philadelphia for the very first time, promising an Independence Day filled with unforgettable performances and musical camaraderie. This year’s event will take place at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion in Camden, NJ, right across the river from the heart of Philadelphia, the birthplace of America.

Blackbird Presents and Live Nation Concerts are ecstatic to announce the return of the Outlaw Music Festival Tour in 2024, bringing an unparalleled lineup of legendary artists to stages across 25 cities from June through September.

Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival rolled through Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, last weekend on August 13. An array of country and classic rock legends handpicked to join Willie on this stretch of the tour delivered an incredible show that took the audience on a journey through decades of music.

The 2023 Outlaw Music Festival, headlined by the legendary Willie Nelson & Family, marked a momentous occasion in Bethel, NY. Graced with picturesque late July weather, it was an experience to be etched in the memories of music enthusiasts.
