When you go to a show, stop by Scooterville, Willie Nelson’s travelling Merchandise Store, run by the Frank Brothers. They have Willie Nelson souvenirs that you can’t get anywhere else. And the best collection of Willie Nelson & Family music you can find anywhere. And cool trinkets, buttons, key chains, bandannas of course, posters and books. Beer cozies, or whatever they are called, bumper stickers, license plates, shirts and hoodies and hats.

Amos Lee sang this song El Camino tonight at Chautauqua in Boulder.

Willie Nelson on Pollstar Global Concert Pulse

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

The Top 5 of the Pollstar Global Concert Pulse remains unchanged from last week, with mammoth stadium tours from Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones grossing around $10 million per city while, although a distant third, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s European stadium tour still grosses more than $5 million per market, showing the health of this summer’s touring business.

While U2’s still-awesome $3.6 million per market may look lackluster in comparison, it’s important to remember Bono and the band already did 50 shows in 2017, mostly stadiums, which put the band on top for the year with $316 million grossed worldwide.

New on the Global Concert Pulse this week is the Red Headed Stranger himself, Willie Nelson at No. 51, who has been on the road again, sometimes with Alison Krauss, sometimes with the Family. Recent boxoffice reports include May 27 at The Anthem in Washington, D.C., which was configured for 2,881 capacity and grossed $310,335 with Cris Jacobs and Sturgill Simpson also on the bill.

With  Krauss, he played KFC Yum! Center May 23, with 5,863 tickets sold and $398,551 grossed, and State Farm Center in Champaign, Ill, which moved another 5,452 tickets and grossed $414,485. Being a model of consistency, he also sold 5,065 tickets May 16 at BOK Center (Krauss co-bill), grossing $441,335, and two nights at Whitewater Amphitheatre in New Braunfels, Texas, for the smokers’ holiday  April 20-21, where he sold out 10,590 tickets and grossed $532,590.

Over the last three months he’s put up an average gross of $329,566 per market with 4,772 tickets sold and $69 being the average ticket price.

At 85 years old, Nelson has recently had to postpone concerts due to illness and a few shows were stopped short citing shortness of breath, but he seems to be having no trouble out there now. He has dates into August with Krauss, multiple nights of his Outlaw Music Festival and more solo dates in the fall.

Willie Nelson grows his cannabis empire

Saturday, July 21st, 2018
by:  Katie Friel

CULTURE MAP — Whether it’s a song about heartbreak or an eighth of his own brand of marijuana, Austin’s own Willie Nelson always has the cure for what ails you. Beginning in September, Nelson is expanding his cannabis line to include one of the buzziest products in recent memory: CBD oil.

According to a release, Willie’s Remedy, the CBD line of Nelson’s Willie’s Reserve, will first debut a whole bean, CBD-infused coffee to help perk up your morning. The small batch roast will be infused with oil naturally derived from American-grown, organic hemp. When brewed, an 8-ounce cup of Willie’s Remedy carries about 5 milligrams of CBD oil.

“It’s two of my favorites, together in the perfect combination,” says Nelson in a release. “Like coffee, cannabis is a plant that works for me.” The coffee is set to launch in September in Colorado. According to a representative, the brand plans to roll out additional CBD products sometime this year.

Nelson also hopes to use his CBD line to educate consumers on the benefits of THC-free products. Though it is a derivative of the cannabis plant, CBD carries many of the same benefits as marijuana, but without THC, users don’t have the psychoactive or “high” effects.
