In the same way as other performers, Willie Nelson couldn’t want anything more than to be out and about once more.
Be that as it may, at 87, the eager nation legend isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic hold him down.
Truth be told, he’ll be having a bustling fourth of July weekend: First, he discharges his 70th independent studio collection, “First Rose of Spring,” on Friday. At that point on Saturday, Nelson’s yearly “fourth of July Picnic” will carry on as a half and half live-stream/show film occasion in the virtual open country.
Presently how’s that for being a deft octogenarian?
What’s more, as though anybody could state no to Willie, he’s drawn a solid setup: Among those booked to show full Nelson love are Sheryl Crow, Ziggy Marley, Margo Price, Steve Earle, Kurt Vile and, obviously, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, which is fronted by Wille’s 31-year-old child.
Tickets for the advanced occasion — which run from $35 before Saturday to $45 the day of the occasion — can be bought at WilliePicnic.com, where the merriments will stream starting at 4:30 p.m.
The cookout was initially booked to carry fans to Nelson’s Luck, Texas, farm on the edges of Austin. Yet, presently Texas has become a problem area for COVID-19.
All things considered, some live-stream exhibitions will occur from stages at the farm, while Nelson himself will play from his close by Pedernales Studios. In the meantime, different craftsmen are taping their exhibitions from remote areas for the show film parcel.
The film will likewise include interviews sharing recollections from past picnics.
Furthermore, there is a great deal of them:
Nelson has been doing this consistently since 1972.
The consolidated merriments will all make for an incredible method to observe Nelson’s new LP, which was deferred from April. The collection includes the single “We Are the Cowboys,” a melody initially recorded by Billy Joe Shaver. Also, the “cattle rustlers” video was shot by Micah Nelson, Willie’s 30-year-old child.
Nelson will keep the joint effort all in the family when he and his 89-year-old sister Bobbie Nelson — an individual from his Family band — discharge the journal “Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of the Family Band” on Sept. 15.
Obviously, nothing — not so much as a pandemic — can stop Willie.
