The Outlaw Music Festival
, a summer all-star tour of roots musicians led by Willie Nelson, will not be kicking off at the Shrine on Airline July 1 as previously announced, instead beginning in Dallas July 2. No explanation was given for the cancellation except for a "scheduling conflict."
Refunds are available at the point of purchase, according to the Outlaw Music Festival website
The New Orleans stop was to include
Nelson, The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow and Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real. It was to be a second chance for Avett fans to see the brothers after their March appearance in New Orleans was canceled
due to Scott Avett's influenza.
More dates have been added to the original six-stop tour, but a reschedule in New Orleans isn't among them.
