Tickets go on sale Saturday for Willie Nelson’s headlining show – NBC Chicago
Willie Nelson and his family will travel to the 2022 Illinois State Fair for a performance on August 16.
With a career spanning seven decades, the country artist has created many top-notch albums including ‘Shotgun Willie’, ‘Stardust’ and ‘God’s Problem Child’. More recently, Nelson released “A Beautiful Time”.
“Willie Nelson and Family is a great addition to an already incredible lineup of grandstands,” said Rebecca Clark, manager of the Illinois State Fair. “Visitors can sing along to classics like ‘Always on my Mind’ or hits from his latest album ‘First Rose of Spring’. This is truly a concert that will have something for every generation.
Although Nelson is known for his music, he is also an actor, activist and author. He will take to the grandstand stage at the Illinois Lottery alongside alternative country singer and opener Elle King.
With the fair running from August 11-21, a number of additional headliners have been announced. Demi Lovato, Sam Hunt, Brooks & Dunn, TLC, Shaggy, Jon Pardi, Lainey Wilson, Chapel Hart, Disturbed, Nita Strauss and Sammy Hagar and The Circle are all up for shows.
Tickets for Nelson’s show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday on Ticketmaster. Tickets for other artists are now available here.
