Willie NelsonWillie Nelson

Willie Nelson will release a new memoir, titled It’s a Long Story: My Life, which is set for release on May 5. It’s not his first book about his life — he’s published several, his first being 1988’s Willie: An Autobiography. This one will touch on his childhood growing up during the Great Depression in Texas, his music career, tax problems, being a proponent of marijuana legalization and more.

Willie will also be touring for much of 2015, and is playing a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show in Prospect Park on August 12 with Old Crow Medicine Show. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/27) at noon with an OCMS presale on Tuesday (2/24) at noon, and BRIC Arts and AMeX presales on Wednesday (2/25) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Celebrate Brooklyn! hasn’t provided their full 2015 schedule yet, but it kicks off June 3 with Chaka Kahn and also includes the Interpol show on July 21 (tickets). Another show was just announced: Damien Rice on June 17 . That’s a ticketed show which benefits the concert series. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/27) at noon with a BRIC Arts presale on Wednesday (2/25) at noon and a Ticketmaster presale on Thursday (2/26) at noon. Damien also plays Beacon Theatre on April 4 which is sold out.
