Willie Nelson to bring iconic hits to Hard Rock Tulsa

24 August 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Willie Nelson has a six decade career and 200 plus albums to his name, and he's bringing his beloved hits to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Tickets start at $55 and go on sale Aug. 25.

The iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of "Crazy," "Red Headed Stranger" and "Stardust."

Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force.

In the last five years alone he delivered ten new album releases, released a Top 10 The New York Times bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, received his fifth degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul, headlined the last three years of the on-going Luck Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, Texas during SXSW, announced the launch of his cannabis company Willie's Reserve, and graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

In 2015, Nelson added two more titles, "It's A Long Story: My Life," the unvarnished and complete story of Willie, hit bookshelves and landed him on the The New York Times bestsellers list; and the new studio album with Merle Haggard titled "Django And Jimmie," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Country album chart and No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart.

In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award.

And this year began with the release of "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin," a collection of 11 newly recorded Gershwin classics. The album debuted at No. 1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. Tickets are only available through Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. Ticket prices and information on upcoming shows are available online in The Joint section of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa website or by calling (918) 384-ROCK.
