“On the road again, like band of gypsies we roll down the highway.”

Our Luck is coming back, and we’re ready to celebrate in a Willie big way. We’re thrilled to announce Luck Presents: Welcome Back Willie, a three-show event marking Willie Nelson & Family’s return to the stage – right back in Luck, TX on July 16, 17, and 18. Tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, June 24 at luckpresents.com

The event kicks off not only Willie’s upcoming tour, but also Luck Presents’ next chapter. After two years without our flagship Reunion, and too many days spent missing live music, we’re thrilled to be returning safely with an experience that could only happen in Luck, TX.

“Welcome Back Willie” will feature supporting acts each night: Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis (7/16); Reckless Kelly (7/17); and Morgan Wade (7/18).

Keep in mind…we’re back as much as we can be: This is a socially distanced show, and Luck Presents is taking all precautions to ensure the safest possible experience. The event is being sold at a quarter capacity so that attendees can comfortably enjoy the event.

Tickets will be sold in pre-marked, socially-distanced squares that each accommodate 4 people, tiered by location and accommodation. There are also general standing room tickets available, which also allow for social distancing space.

Stay with us for more great Luck Presents news. We can’t wait to be back on the road with you.

Luck Summit

Monday, April 26th, 2021

Line up announced for Luck’s Marijuana Summit (4/26 – 4/29, 2021)

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

www.Luck

Luck Presents is proud to announce the lineup for their first annual cannabis convention, Luck Summit: Planting the Seed, which benefits HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project.

Presented by Rocket Seeds and hosted by Nathaniel Rateliff, the multi-day virtual summit seeks to destigmatize, educate, and promote cannabis culture in an informative and entertaining way. During the summit, which runs virtually April 26-29, Luck and fellow cannabis-advocate partners will showcase the cannabis plant through the lenses of history, science, entertainment, and culture. 

Matt Bizer, co-founder of Luck Presents, says of the programming, “It was important to us in this first year event that we created a bi-partisan, stigma free conversation around cannabis in its many forms. We truly believe that Willie has been a unifier for so many in his years as both a cannabis activist and humanitarian. With Willie as our landlord we are able to set a stage and a platform for this conversation in a unique way here in Texas and throughout the country.” 

Today, team Luck unveiled a highly curated lineup that is both entertainingly enlightening and recreationally educational, a sample of which is listed below.

GOSPEL SUNDAY REVIVAL FEAT
BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA WITH RAY PRIM
April 4 | 2pmThis show has a special place in our heart as it celebrates Easter Sunday the Willie way. 

There’s no better way to open up a Nelson family close-held, little known Easter Sunday celebration than out on the lawn at the Long Center with all of you and the legendary gospel group Blind Boys of Alabama. We hope to revive this beloved tradition, and to share a truly soulful Sunday with our music community in the spirit of togetherness.

The chapel at Willie Nelson’s “Luck, TX”  is perhaps the most cherished building on the property. Long before it was a stage for the annual Luck Reunion music festival, the chapel hosted many special events for the family and friends. 

But, to those in the know, the most special memories from the tiny church are of the annual Easter Service. 
For years, friends and family clamored to Luck, TX each Easter Sunday and crowded the chapel Austin Gospel group, the Bells of Joy, often accompanied by a set from Willie and Bobbie, his sister and piano player. 

The heart of the holiday was always the music, which echoed throughout the town as kids hunted eggs and neighbors danced side by side. It’s with this joy that we, as the Luck Team, are beyond excited to revive this tradition with a special performance from the legendary gospel group Blind Boys of Alabama.
