Willie Nelson @ ACL Live in 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson has a number of dates scheduled for the next few months including two in the NYC area happening on May 16 and 17 at Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Both shows are billed as "Willie Nelson & Family", and as you can see from one of his recent Austin shows, they truly will be family affairs. Tickets ($95.00, $75.00 & $45.00) go on sale Friday (2/17) at noon with a presale starting Wednesday (2/14) at noon. All dates are listed below.

In related news, if you were watching the Grammys last night, you probably know that a Chipotle commercial aired with Willie Nelson covering Coldplay's "The Scientis.t" You can purchase his cover of the track on iTunes and watch the video for the commercial (which has actually been out since August) below.

All dates and video below...

That commercial is not very vegan friendly.

Willie Nelson, besides being the talent he is, is also a great guy. I remember when he signed my Telecaster outside the Beacon Theatre about 10 years ago, and he was talking to people on their cell phones and was just chatting away with everyone like they were old friends. At the time, btw, he was about 62 or so - and women were LINING UP to kiss him...

I had seen the commercial movie theaters before last night. Fantastic cover, though.
