When life gives you a chance to see Willie Nelson, you take it. And thankfully life has handed Milwaukeeans a lot of opportunities to see the country great over the years — just last year he headlined his Outlaw Music Festival at Summerfest and Farm Aid at Alpine Valley. But if you missed those shows, you’ve got another one coming up: Nelson will headline the Riverside Theater on April 29, the venue announced this morning.
At age 86, Nelson is still touring as aggressively as ever. He also released a new album earlier last year, “Ride Me Back Home,” which received a glowing review from Pitchfork. Nelson tours so much it can be easy to take him for granted, but nothing lasts forever. You’ve got to catch the legends while you can.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, Jan. 17, at 10 a.m.
