Let’s Check In On Ticket Prices For Willie Nelson’s Granada Theater Shows
by: Alex Macon
You had a rough 2016. While the year that was may not have been that much worse than every other year, it was rough, and you’re already looking forward to 2017 — a 12-month blank slate full of hope and potential. You’d rather not pick through the wreckage of the past. The year-end lists will take care of that.
Instead, you are planning some early highlights for the year ahead. You plan to start things on a positive note. Willie Nelson is playing two shows at the Granada, on Jan. 3 and 4. A legend. A great venue. This is intimate, as the marketing materials tell you. This is the very pinnacle of intimacy. This is bunk beds intimate. Double dip in the queso intimate. Nelson might as well be blowing clouds of Willie’s Reserve directly in to your nostrils.
It’s mid-November when tickets go on sale, and you’re by your computer at 11 a.m., ready to smash that “buy tickets” icon like it’s the reset button on the last miserable 11 months. You’re denied, less than a minute later — sold out, defeated by the 400 people with the presale links and the armies of online scalpers and their robots, machines that have had a great year and don’t even know the words to “Always On My Mind.”
You keep your cool. This was to be expected. Of course tickets sold out faster than you can say “whiskey river.” This is Willie. This is intimacy. You’re undeterred. Several weeks later, you’re back at your computer. You check StubHub, and promptly faint:
When you wake up, you realize that it’s not all that bad, with the average resale ticket going for closer to $400. Regardless, they are not cheap. You are not a wealthy person. You shake your fist at the sky and curse the scourge of online scalping. But it’s Willie, and how many more chances will you have to see him in concert?
You now face a dilemma, the first of the not even new year.
It was a rough 2016. You have to start 2017 better. To grit your teeth and buy expensive tickets from an online reseller to see Willie Nelson at the Granada, go here.
You just don’t have the money. To close your browser window and banish all thoughts of Willie Nelson from your mind, go here.

LaGRANGE — The Daily News today announces its 2016 Reader Satisfaction Survey and the chance to win two tickets to see Willie Nelson live at Sweetland Amphitheatre on May 29.
The tickets are provided courtesy of Sweetland Amphitheatre and its 2016 Summer Concert Series sponsored by Bud Light. To enter to win, readers must complete the survey online atwww.lagrangenews.com/survey or visit the newspaper office at 105 Ashton St. and complete a paper survey.
“We want to make sure we’re offering the community the product they want and deserve,” said Jeff Parra, publisher of the Daily News. “We’re taking this as a serious opportunity for us to listen — and respond — to our readers, and we hope as many people as possible will respond.”
The survey, which is 10 questions, will be open through at least May 1, at which time an entrant will be notified he or she has won the two tickets. The winner will be chosen through a random drawing of phone numbers submitted by survey takers. The tickets are general admission lawnseats.
“Our goal is to take the temperature of the community, and find out where we’re excelling, as well as find out what new ideas people have for the Daily News,” said Parra, who became the newspaper’s publisher in February. “I’m looking forward to hearing what people have to say. Of course, we’re grateful to Sweetland Amphitheatre for supporting this project and look forward to sending two folks to see Willie Nelson in May.”
Employees of the Daily News, their family members and other employees of the Daily News’ parent company, Civitas Media, are ineligible to win the tickets.
To be notified of winning, the entrant must provide a valid daytime telephone number. The Daily News will contact the winner by phone on May 1. If the winner does not claim their prize within three business days, another winner will be drawn.
