The upcoming Willie Nelson and Family tour will include a concert in Greenville, his lone appearance in the Carolinas that he currently has scheduled.
Nelson is set to play Greenville’s Peace Center on March 5.  Tickets for the show range from $65 to $95, and will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. For those eligible, pre-sale tickets will be available on Tuesday at 10 a.m.

The 20-concert tour is slated to kickoff on Feb. 7 in Macon, Ga., and run through October.

With a six-decade career and 200-plus albums, Willie Nelson is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Red Headed Stranger,” and “Stardust.” The iconic Texan has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist.

In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored Nelson with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award. And 2016 began with the release of Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin. The album debuted at #1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart, and earned him a Grammy® Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

In April 2017, Nelson released his latest studio album, God’s Problem Child, which features 13 new songs. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country album chart and #10 on the Billboard 200.

Nelson last performed at the Township Auditorium in 2015.
