Willie Nelson’s touring Outlaw Music Festival returns this summer, with the first leg of dates stretching from late May to early July, with the lineup featuring the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Alison Krauss, Brandi Carlile and more.

Now, the festival has suddenly added more fire-power to its lineup. Joining some of the previously announced artists are rock and roll legends Van Morrison and Neil Young + Promise of the Real. Other artists include Tedeschi Trucks Band, Margo Price, Greensky Bluegrass, Terra Lightfoot, and The Commonheart. Meanwhile, some of the acts from the initial leg of the tour will continue to perform for a few dates in September as well. This includes Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, Nataniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and Lukas + Promise of the Real.

 

The eight new dates are all set for September, kicking off on September 7 with a show in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, before heading to Toronto, Ontario; Scranton, PA; Holmdel, New Jersey; Mansfield, Massachusetts and wrapping up in Saratoga Springs, New York on September 23. Each show comes with a different lineup of performers, and you can see the full schedule for the new leg of the tour below. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale beginning April 6th via the festival’s website.

Last month, Nelson announced a new album titled 'Last Man Standing' which is due for an April 27 release. Nelson also released the music video for the titular lead single from the album. The 75-year-old country legend also recently announced a leg of co-headlining dates alongside Alison Krauss in support of the album.
