He will be on the bill for shows in Charlotte, NC (9/10); Virginia Beach, VA (9/11); Bridgeport, CT (9/13); Mansfield, MA (9/16); and Saratoga Springs, NY (9/18).

Thanks so much to Budrock, Willie Nelson & Family’s Lighting Director, for sharing this from his vast Willie Nelson collection. He sent it along with this note:

“This was a postcard. These were on every table during Willie’s performances (usually two shows a night for two weeks). This one was from when the live album was recorded.

Willie was 45.
I was 28″
