Music legend Willie Nelson returns once again to the Diamond Center on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018. With previous sold-out shows, tickets to see the iconic musician are guaranteed to go fast. Reserved tickets start at $40 and go on sale Friday, Nov. 24 at 10am through Star Tickets and at Desert Diamond Casino’s Rewards Center. Doors open at 7pm; show starts at 8pm.
With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Hello Walls,” “Red Headed Stranger,” and “Stardust.” Willie Nelson has earned numerous awards and honors as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In the last five years alone he delivered 10 new album releases, released a Top 10 New York Times’ bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul for his 81st birthday, and graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
In 2015, Nelson added two more titles—“It’s A Long Story: My Life,” the unvarnished and complete story of Willie, hit bookshelves and landed him on the New York Times’ bestseller list, and the new studio album with Merle Haggard titled Django And Jimmie, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country album chart. In Nov. 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award. Most recently, in April 2017, Nelson released his studio album “God’s Problem Child;” it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country album chart and No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
