We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Just days after it was announced that Willie Nelson canceled a Texas show due to an unknown illness, the singer has added even more onto his touring schedule.
According to Guide Live, Nelson just announced two dates at Dallas’ Granada Theater on Jan. 3-4, 2017. It looks like Nelson must be feeling all better and ready to get back to performing. The crazy touring and appearance schedule may have just taken its toll on the 83-year-old singer.
Granada is an unusual choice for Nelson because of its size. The venue has a capacity of just over 1,000 people and it’s all standing room only. If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket to one of the shows, it’s sure to be a rare, intimate opportunity to see him perform.
The owner of Granada Theater, Mike Schoder, has been a lifelong fan of Nelson. “There’s nobody that could ever trump Willie Nelson in Texas at the Granada, are you kidding?” Schoder told Guide Live of his newest guest. “Nobody alive.”
The Granada Theater stage has hosted Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton and Adele during its 12 years in business. Nelson seems to be who Schoder is most thrilled to have play at his venue, though.
“The sweet things in life are a lot of times just based on timing,” the owner said. “For us to be able to host [Willie Nelson] for two nights, ya know, at this point in his career, it’s incredible.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 18. Even though they are a little pricey at $125 a pop, get ready, because they’re going to sell out almost instantly. That’s just the power of Willie.
