Linda Bull will perform a series of shows to pay tribute to country legend Willie Nelson.
The show ‘Stardust: The Songs of Willie Nelson’, takes its name from Nelson’s iconic 1978 ‘Stardust’ album.
Joining Linda to feature vocals on some of the songs is Australian singer songwriter Sime Nugent.
“The reason I love Willie Nelson is simple: when he sings, I believe him. I share his love of a good melody and relate to his tales of loneliness and heartbreak but also to his optimism, longevity and no nonsense approach” said Linda. “I’m really looking forward to singing the songs I’ve always loved with Sime Nugent and a band who have been a part of my musical family for so long.”
Linda will be backed by The Red Headed Strangers, lead by Cameron Bruce (MD/keys) and featuring Shane Reilly (guitar/pedal steel), Bill McDonald (bass) and Pete Luscombe (drums), as well as special guest Sime Nugent (guitar).
Tickets for this limited run of Stardust: The Songs of Willie Nelson go on sale at 12 noon tomorrow, Friday, 13 July
