Willie Nelson will turn 90 in 2023 and some of his musical friends will help him celebrate the momentous occasion. Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90, a two-day event at the Hollywood Bowl will feature performances by Neil Young, Sheryl Crow, Lyle Lovett, Norah Jones, Tom Jones, Rosanne Cash, Bobby Weir, Snoop Dogg, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Nelson himself, among many others. Two-day tickets for the concerts on April 29-30 go on sale Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. PT here.

“I can’t think of a better way to spend my 90th birthday than being surrounded by family, friends, and of course the fans who made this all possible,” said Nelson in the Jan. 24th announcement. “It’s an honor to perform with such an incredible group of artists at such an iconic venue.” The event’s first day falls on the legend’s actual birthday.

Neil Young’s participation is particularly noteworthy as he hasn’t performed in public since the pandemic started.

Also scheduled to perform: Allison Russell, Beck, Billy Strings, Charley Crockett, Chris Stapleton, Edie Brickell, Kacey Musgraves, Leon Bridges, Lukas Nelson, Particle Kid, Margo Price, Miranda Lambert, Orville Peck, Sturgill Simpson, the Avett Brothers, the Chicks, the Lumineers, Tyler Childers, Warren Haynes, and Ziggy Marley. The announcement indicated even more artists are expected.

The event is being produced by Blackbird Presents. More from the announcement: With a career spanning an incredible seven decades, Willie Nelson is widely recognized as one of the greatest and most influential artists in the history of popular music. A true living legend who has built a globally celebrated career as a musician, author, actor, and activist, Willie turns 90 years young, as vibrant, active, and dynamic as ever. In the past year, as the definitive five-part documentary film on his extraordinary life and career is set to premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, Willie released several new albums (receiving four nominations for the 2023 Grammy Awards), authored his latest book, and continues to perform across the country while also headlining iconic festivals including Farm Aid, July 4th Picnic and his Outlaw Music Festival Tour.
