George Strait, Dave Matthews join Willie Nelson 90 lineup

Willie Nelson is going to have plenty of help blowing out the candles for his 90th birthday this weekend in L.A.

Dave Matthews, Kris Kristofferson (a young’un at 86), George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Gary Clark Jr., Jack Johnson and Stephen Stills are among the artists who have been added to Saturday and Sunday’s Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90 concerts at the Hollywood Bowl.

They join a genre-spanning lineup that includes Beck, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, the Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, Bob Weir, Tom Jones, Tyler Childers, Snoop Dogg, Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price, Norah Jones, Allison Russell, Leon Bridges, Lyle Lovett, the Avett Brothers, Rosanne Cash and Orville Peck.

Nelson and two of his sons — Micah, a.k.a. Particle Kid, and Lukas — will also perform.

Nelson turns 90 on April 29.

The Hollywood Bowl concerts are part of a dizzyingly active 2023 for the country music icon. In March, he released his 73rd studio album, “I Don’t Know a Thing About Love: The Songs of Harlan Howard.” He is a first-time nominee this year for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. And he’ll be on the road through October, much of it as headliner of his own traveling Outlaw Music Festival.

Two-day tickets for Long Story Short: Willie Nelson 90 are still available.
