Before the Texas Rangers begin playing at their new Globe Life Field in Arlington next year, a March 14 concert will introduce the new digs. Contemporary country chart-topper Chris Stapleton is the headliner, it’s hard to dispute that the most important name on the bill is Texas native Willie Nelson.
Tickets to the concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 1 via the Live Nation website. Ticket prices have not yet been announced.
Joining Stapleton and Nelson on the bill are Jamey Johnson, who’s been a favorite performer at Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic in Austin for years, and British singer Yola, who impressed a crowd at the Austin City Limits Music Festival earlier this month.
The date overlaps with Austin’s annual South by Southwest event, which runs March 13-22 next year. In recent years, Nelson has hosted the Luck Reunion on Thursday during SXSW; if that happens again this year, the date would be March 19.
