Willie Nelson has announced that his Outlaw Music Festival Tour will return again in 2018, kicking off its first leg in Raleigh, N.C. on May 25 and its second leg on Sept. 7 in Burgettstown, Pa. This tour marks the second year that the festival has occurred in the form of a traveling show.

Fans can get more information about tickets for the Outlaw Music Festival Tour, which is a production of Blackbird Presents, on BlackbirdPresents.com; a complete list of tour dates is below. Nelson and company will head out on the road just a few weeks after his 85th birthday.

Nelson has come under a significant amount of scrutiny regarding his health over the past year, most recently after he canceled a string of tour dates in February of 2018 in order to recover from a bout with the flu. However, the legendary singer quickly proved that he had lost neither his health nor his spirit: In mid-February, Nelson announced a new album, Last Man Standing, to arrive in April. That album will drop almost exactly a year after the singer's most recent release, God's Problem Childand just two days before his birthday.

Last year's Outlaw Music Festival featured big names such as Bob Dylan and Jason Isbell as well as relative up-and-comers like Hayes Carll and Margo Price, and it seems that this year's event will be upholding that tradition. The festival's headlining acts will be Nelson and Sturgill Simpson, as well as other big names such as Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello and Old Crow Medicine Show; additionally, Nelson's lineup will include Brandi Carlile, Ryan Bingham and rockabilly singer songwriter JD McPherson.
