Willie Nelson has been hosting the Outlaw Music Festival tour for the last few years and after taking 2020 off for obvious reasons, he's bringing it back this year to outdoor amphitheaters all over the U.S. Joining him at various points along the way are Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Avett Brothers, Lucinda Williams, Gov't Mule, Ida Mae, Kathleen Edwards, Yola and Ryan Bingham.

The tour begins in Willie's hometown of Austin, TX on August 22 and includes shows in Philly, Saratoga (NY), Virginia Beach, Raleigh, Charlotte, the DC-area, Phoenix, Ivine, CA's Five Point Amphitheatre on 10/16, San Diego and more.

Tickets for the whole tour go on sale to the general public this Thursday, May 27 at 10 AM local time, with presales starting Tuesday (5/27) at 10 AM local. All dates are listed below.

Willie, who just turned 88 in April, released an album of Frank Sinatra covers earlier this year and, more recently, a collab single with Michael McDonald and Los Lobos' David Hidalgo.
