Elvis Costello, Sturgill Simpson & more on Willie Nelson’s 2018 “Outlaw Music Festival” tour

Outlaw Music Festival 2018 Lineup

Willie Nelson will once again be touring the country with many other artists as part of his “Outlaw Music Festival Tour,” and this year’s dates and lineup have just been announced. The lineup has some very noteworthy names, including Sturgill Simpson, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Alison Krauss, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Brandi Carlile, The Head and The Heart, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, with more artists TBA. There’s no NYC-area date currently, but tickets for all announced dates go on sale Friday March 16 at noon local time, with a Citi presale going on now.

Meanwhile, Willie’s new album, Last Man Standing, is due out in April and he has shared a new single from the record, “Me and You.” You can watch the video for that, along with the previously-released title track, below.

Willie’s got other tour dates in addition to OutLaw Music Fest, including his “Luck Reunion” all-day fest this weekend at his Ranch outside Austin during SXSW. All dates, including the lineups of individual Outlaw Music Fest shows, are listed below.
