Snoop Dogg, Chris Stapleton roll up for Willie Nelson's 90th birthday concert celebration


Willie Nelson's 90th birthday celebration at the Hollywood Bowl has become a legendary event in the history of concerts. The two-night extravaganza, called "Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90," began on his birthday, and even more stars were added to the bill just before the shows began.

The lineup of performers, which included Snoop Dogg, Chris Stapleton, The Chicks, and Tom Jones, among others, highlighted the power and influence of Willie Nelson. "There's nobody like him," said musician Lyle Lovett. "Everyone here has Willie Nelson in common, we're all automatically friends because of him. The world needs that and the world needs Willie."

The concert's first three hours featured performances by music superstars such as Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, and Bobby Weir. Miranda Lambert, Jennifer Garner, and Jack Johnson also took the stage before Willie Nelson finally made his appearance.

Nelson performed with Neil Young, George Strait, and Snoop Dogg, among others. After singing a joyous version of his classic hit "On the Road Again," Nelson serenaded himself with "Happy Birthday to Me" and concluded with Mac Davis’ classic song "Hard to Be Humble."

The weekend concert included many other performers, such as Beck, Billy Strings, and Norah Jones. The executive producer of the event, Keith Wortman, explained that they invited many of Willie Nelson's close friends and the family of musicians he has either recorded or toured with, which made for a very large list of performers.
