"The second leg of the Outlaw Music Festival Tour with all my friends is going to be a blast," says Willie Nelson. "We'll see you out there this summer!"

"Family. That's what this touring group of artists, fans and friends are when we come together for our annual Outlaw Music Festival Tour. I am thrilled to continue this journey with Willie, this extraordinary group of performers, and Live Nation," says Keith Wortman, CEO of Blackbird Presents.

"This started out with a one-show storyboard two years ago. Now, you can hear, feel, smell and immerse locally in that joyous exuberance," says Geoff Gordon, Live Nation Philadelphia Regional President. "Outlaw is really just a celebration of everything Willie, which the Picnic has been for decades."

The inaugural Outlaw Music Festival made its debut in 2016 in Scranton, PA, featuring Willie Nelson & Family, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Lee Ann Womack and Cabinet. The sold-out show was so well received that Blackbird and Nelson decided to take their band of outlaws on the road as a touring festival in 2017. Last year, the Outlaw Music Festival Tour hosted more than 100,000 fans in amphitheaters and arenas all whover the country. From Willie Nelson to Bob Dylan to Eric Church to The Avett Brothers, fans shared unforgettable music memories and enjoyed unique vendor villages with local food, drinks and shopping. VIP ticketholders got a front row experience and exclusive merchandise. Outlaw Music Festival Tour 2018 is presented by Southern Comfort.<
