Willie Nelson performs at Snow King in September 2005.
Like sunlight over the mountaintop, he’s coming back again.
Beloved country crooner Willie Nelson will return to Jackson Hole to play an outdoor concert at Snow King on Sept. 4. Tickets are not yet on sale.
The gig is listed on Nelson’s tour page, and Snow King announced the show yesterday afternoon.
Willie and family last played the King in 2005, also on Labor Day weekend. That show was the biggest in Jackson Hole history, drawing a capacity crowd estimated at 5,000.
Silvertag Live, the company owned by Paul Thornton, formerly of Idaho-based Bravo Entertainment, had been in negotiations to bring Widespread Panic back to Snow King over July Fourth weekend, but Thornton wrote in an e-mail last month that the show was unlikely to happen. Grand Targhee also made a bid for two nights of Panic, which would have been Heavenly.
