Willie Nelson will perform at Austin City Limits’ first show, for the second time

Artist’s rendition of “W” hotel in Austin, and future home of Austin City Limits Studio.

KVUE television in Austin put to bed all the rumors today, when they confirmed that Willie Nelson will perform at the first Austin City Limits show, for their grand opening in their new location.   No date was given, but they did say that the hotel and condominiums would be completed in December 2010.  Stay tuned. 

How hard do you think it will be to score a pair of tickets to that show?  They probably won’t even sell tickets, there are so many VIPs who will want to go.    But you know they will tape it to share with the rest of the world!

Take the virtual tour of the “W”condos and hotel here.

Thanks to PBS, here’s the original show from 1975.  Willie has played there several times.
