Country legend Willie Nelson will return to the Central Coast this fall.
Willie Nelson and Family will take the stage Oct. 21 at the Avila Beach Golf Resort. Nelson is touring to promote his new autobiography, “It’s a Long Story: My Life,” published in May, and his new album with the late Merle Haggard, “Django and Jimmie,” released June 2.
Nelson, whose countless hits include “Always on My Mind,” “Crazy” and “Red Headed Stranger,” has forged a reputation as one of the leaders of the outlaw country movement over six decades as an actor, author, activist and singer-songwriter.
Nelson last graced a San Luis Obispo County stage in July 2015, when he played Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles. He’s also performed at Pozo Saloon, the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, and the Alex Madonna Expo Center and the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo.
Tickets for Nelson’s all-ages outdoor show cost $40 to $110 and go on sale at noon Friday at all Vallitix locations. Children younger than 7 are free when accompanied by paying adults. For information, visit www.otterproductionsinc.com.
