Willie Nelson’s 90th Birthday Celebration Coming to Television

Willie Nelson celebrated his 90th Birthday with two epic shows earlier this year at the Hollywood Bowl in California on April 29th and 30th. A massive list of performers was assembled to toast Willie including Billy Strings, Charley Crockett, Dwight Yoakam, Allison Russell, Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Jamey Johnson, Keith Richards, Kris Kristofferson, Miranda Lambert, Snoop Dogg, and Neil Young just to name a few.

Those who were in attendance walked away talking about how legendary the two-day event was. In October, Blackbird Presents and Legacy Recordings announced they will be releasing Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90 Live At The Hollywood Bowl as a 2 CD+Blu-Ray set on December 15th. It will include 39 complete audio tracks, three hours of video performances, and a multi-page booklet. A 2 LP vinyl edition will also be available.

But if you don’t want to go through the trouble of acquiring a Blu-Ray to see the concert for yourself, or didn’t see it when it aired in select theaters in June, you’re in luck. On Sunday, December 17th, CBS will air a two-hour television special with select performances from the 2-day event. It is set to air at 8:30-10:30 PM, EASTERN. Check local listings for specific times in your area. It will also be streaming live on Paramount+, and be available on demand for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers.

Along with the previously-announced physical packages commemorating the two-day event, Legacy Recordings has also revealed the bonus tracks that will only be available through the digital edition of the release, expanding it to a total of 52 performances. This will include some of the songs folks were lamenting didn’t make it onto the physical release.

Physical copies of Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90 Live are now available for pre-order. The full digital track list can be seen below.
