Willie and the Tour Boys

We have the legendary Willie Nelson and Family as co-headliners on this tour, and his show is fascinating to watch. On top of the many hits he has recorded, he does excellent versions of other writers' songs including Standards and Pop favorites. His band is a loose congregation of family and friends, and they swap turns at drumming, percussion, etc.

Tommy and Trigger

The famous guitar is always on stage, and it's caretaker makes sure it is well-looked after.


Years of graffitti and signatures adorn the top.


Willie has a very unique guitar style. He phrases unlike anyone I've ever heard, and his famous chromatic runs are always tension-filled. It seems like he'll never make the line fit, but he always does. Weird.
