Willie Nelson adds artists to Outlaw Music Festival in Charlotte, NC (June 20, 2018)

by:  Andrew O’Brien

Willie Nelsonhas announced a number of exciting supporting acts for his make-up show on June 20th at Charlotte, NC’s PNC Music Pavillion. The outlaw country legend will be joined by The Avett Brothers, Jamey Johnson, and Sarah Shook and the Disarmers.

The talented bill serves as a consolation for fans who attended Nelson’s Charlotte, NC edition of his touring Outlaw Music Festival on May 26th. While Nelson took the stage for his scheduled set, he quickly exited before playing a note. A statement from Live Nation explained that the 85-year-old country music legend was forced to cancel his set due to a stomach illness. Tickets for the initial show will be honored for the makeup performance, and additional tickets are available here.

The Charlotte show marked the latest cancellation from Nelson, who has called off a number of dates during the last year due to health issues.

Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival is set to continue on June 22nd and feature artists like Sturgill Simpson, Elvis Costello, The Head and The Heart, Old Crow Medicine Show, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Ryan Bingham, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Margo Price, Terra Lightfoot, and Van Morrison in various different groupings.
