http://soundslikeaustin.com posts about getting to see Willie Nelson at his surprise appearance at Waterloo Records yesterday:
“If you were at this show, count yourself as one of the lucky few (please, excuse me for being a little over the top throughout this post, i still can’t believe it happened). This secret/surprise Willie Nelson appearance with Asleep at the Wheel was, hands down, one of the greatest concert experiences of my lifetime. To see a legend in such an intimate setting is simply impossible, yet, it happened.
Yesterday i knew Asleep at the Wheel would be doing an in store performance to promote their new album, Willie and the Wheel. I was thinking about attending the show anyway, but as the chatter on twitter started to indicate that Willie Nelson would be appearing, i knew i had to act quickly. Those that bought the record that day got priority entrance, so i picked up the album and one of the last remaining wristbands.
Most thought the show would be at capacity from those who bought the album, but everyone ended up getting in. Asleep at the Wheel played an immaculate show and Willie and Ray looked like they were having more fun than the audience.
Willie even stuck around after the show and signed autographs for everyone who wanted one. I can’t say it enough, it was simply amazing.”
