We have always loved Willie, but did not expect to be blown away by his guitar skills. Man, he's awesome! It was an evening I wish I could have shared with my 89 year old mother who's theme song used to be "On the Road Again".
We loved every minute of it!! Our first picnic ever..We did have to take a break inside Billly Bob's for just over an hour. We missed Jamey Johnson witch sucked out loud. However, we had no choice. We were getting ready to stroke out. We felt like anyway.. We had an amazing experience! The only thing I could recommend. Is that when it gets close to Willie coming on set.That there be some security to control the bum rushing that takes place. When people get to the gates way early, run to get a seat up front. WE deserve to keep our seats up front. WE do not deserve to be pushed, cursed and threatened after being in the hot heat for hours upon hours.. Other than that rock on!!! It was an awesome 4th. July Willie Picnic!!!
The entire concert left me in awe. It was incredible to see the legendary Willie Nelson as it was - but Kacey Musgraves and Allison Krauss with Union Station was truly an added bonus. The sound was stupendous and I will never forget what an amazing evening it was. Friends who were with me weren't even aware that Artpark had such a nice music hall / theater! I told them that when he was just becoming famous - years back - I saw GEORGE STRAIT at Artpark, and I remember seeing Charlie Daniels. Please bring back the good old country!! I will attend every one I can!
This Art Park concert was the best I have heard WILLIE ever because it was all acoustic so his guitar playing was the main focus. ALL of the amazing sounds were coming from his old "Trigger". He played the upbeat tunes first and then toward the end when he did go into his wonderful sentimental hits the audience was in the palm of his hand. Art Park has perfect sound wherever you are sitting!
My seat was AWFUL had a seat # and Row and when I got there it was the BLEACHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE (THERE SHOULD BE A WARNING FOR DISABLED PEOPLE) I missed the first act due SEVERE PAIN & CHANGING TICKETS. After that though it was the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Probably the last chance I'll ever get to see Willie. Allison Krause didn't know they did Brother Where Art Tho Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Missed Devil Makes Three due to the pain and seat crap.
