In early 2017, Willie Nelson will return to a Music City venue that he hasn’t played since the 1970s.

Nelson & Family will perform an intimate concert at Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium on Jan. 7 — the country icon’s first at the venue since Oct. 20, 1974. The Auditorium, which is located near the Tennessee State Capitol and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, seats just 2,000 people; it was the site of Charlie Daniels‘ first-ever Volunteer Jam (on Oct. 4, 1974) and, more recently, featured in Carrie Underwood‘s “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” music video.

Tickets for Nelson’s War Memorial Auditorium concert are scheduled to go on sale on Wednesday (Dec. 21) at 10AM local time; they will be available for purchase through, by phone at 615-782-4030 and at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center box office.

Nelson’s Nashville show is one of a number of concerts already on his calendar in 2017. He will close out 2016 with three nights (Dec. 29, 30 and 31) at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, and has 2017 shows scheduled in Las Vegas, Dallas, San Francisco and many more; visit for more details.

On Jan. 19, Nelson will take part in the first-ever “live cinema” event, Lost in London. Written by, directed by and starring Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson and Nelson, the project is a 100-minute feature film that will be shot live (and in one continuous take), and screen in more than 500 theaters at that exact same time.
