Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival brings Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, and Gov’t Mule to The Mann in September
Country music icon Willie Nelson is re-launching his traveling road show, the Outlaw Music Festival, this summer with a run of in-person dates at amphitheaters around the U.S., including a stop at the Mann Center in Philadelphia on September 11th.
The Philadelphia stop of the festival finds nelson joined by modern country-rock crossover artist Sturgill Simpson, as well as singer-songwriter favorite Margo Price, two alums of the XPoNential Music Festival in recent years. The lineup is rounded out by Gov’t Mule, the celebrated jam band led by Allman Brothers alum Warren Haynes.
“The Outlaw Music Festival Tour has always been about family and friends coming together for a great day of music and fun, and with the amazing group of artists joining us, this year promises to be our most special Outlaw Tour to date,” Nelson says in a press release.
Concert announcements at this point are subject to change due to the unpredictability of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The Mann Center’s website has an extensive COVID-19 section detailing health and safety regulations, information around rescheduled shows, and more.
“The Mann Center for the Performing Arts has taken enhanced measures to protect the health and safety of our guests,” the website reads. “There remains, however, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By entering our venue, you voluntarily assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of exposure to COVID-19.”
