Latest LSA Announcement: Willie Nelson Coming to Bend

Willie Nelson has been booked to play the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon.



Here it is, the next installment of Guess Who's Coming to the Les Schwab Amphitheater?

And in this edition, we're announcing a familiar name to the LSA stage, Mr. Willie Nelson. The Red Headed Stranger last played the LSA in 2007 and is touring this summer in support of his upcoming album, Country Music. This year's show is slated for Friday, September 17.

This is the second country artist to make the LSA schedule thus far, joining legend Merle Haggard, who will play on June 20. But last time around, Nelson - as is his habit (or at least one of his habits) - drew much more than the boot-and-hat crowd, bringing in an eclectic crowd.

Here's an odd moment from Nelson's 2007 show in Bend in which he kisses a fan who braved security to get up to the stage.
