Nobody has made a general thread for him yet. So figured I would start one.

I am thinking about going to see him in July. Has anyone seen him live lately? What's he like? I've never seen him and would love to go before all those drugs take him away...haha

I think He only smokes Herb's. Will probably live to be 100. He is still good live. I have seen him a few times. Good stuff. You will be pleasantly surprised !

Dude just received a 5th degree Black Belt the day before his 81st birthday. He's going to live to at least 100.

I will see him in June for the first time with Alison Krauss and Kacey Musgraves. Really looking forward to it.

Good to know. I figured he still had it from all the videos I have seen of him performing recently. I was even surprised by the video of him at TMR for his birthday. Loved that CMT episode. It's what really got me thinking I need to see him.

This is the same tour I am thinking about seeing him on. He is going to be a few hours away in Michigan so I figured I might get tickets. There isn't really any good seats left at the venue he's playing at, but I think it's small enough that anywhere is good really.

Alison Krauss is awesome live, if Jerry Douglas is with Her you are in for a treat. Much less Willie ....

Willie Nelson live still sounds relatively the same as he did at any other point in his career, though his voice has aged. some songs get a bit more spoken than sung

way too many artists have changed their sound in one way or another that sometimes leaves audiences somewhat longing
he's not only one of THE only classic country artists performing that has retained such a "classic" quality, but also one only a handful of artists in any genre that has done so. in that way, he and neil young have a ton in common

any fan should see him live if you haven't, while you've still got the opportunity

here are videos of him playing the same songs now and then for comparison
a lot has changed about his sound, but what's most important is still there

I downloaded the new Willie Nelson CD Band of Brothers, from Itunes the other day and thought it well worth the dollars if you are a Willie Nelson fan. Not bad for an old fella who wont see 79 again
