The second leg of Outlaw Music Festival Tour for summer 2018, begins September 7, including a newly added date at the Hollywood Bowl. (The first leg, with nine shows, ran from May 25 to July 1.) The summer’s lineup of classic rock stars includes Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Van MorrisonPhil Lesh, Tedeschi Trucks BandNathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and more. (For artists performing in various cities, see the specific market lineups listed below.)

Each date also features a unique range of festival attractions including local cuisine, craft beers, and crafts by local artisans.

Tickets can be purchased here and here.

In the original announcement, Nelson said: “We had so much fun on the Outlaw Music Festival Tour last year that we decided to do it again! See y’all out on the road this summer.”

As we’ve noted, Nelson had to postpone several dates earlier this year, due to illness. The legend, who turned 85 on April 29, has since returned to the stage and has a typically busy 2018 concert calendar.

The inaugural Outlaw Music Festival made its debut in 2016 in Scranton, PA featuring Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, and others. The sold-out show was so well received that Blackbird Presents and Nelson decided to take their band of outlaws on the road as a touring festival in 2017. Last year, the Outlaw Music Festival Tour hosted more than 100,000 fans and featured performances by Nelson, Bob Dylan and others. Outlaw Music Festival Tour 2018 is presented by Southern Comfort.
