American music icon Willie Nelson will play the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota on Feb. 17.

I've seen Nelson several times during the past decade and each time has been a wonderful experience: hippies, students, rednecks, professionals, housewives, grannies and all sorts of other folks come together to celebrate the man and his music.

Let's just hope a court appearance related to the 77-year-old's recent arrest for marijuana possession doesn't get in the way of his Sarasota date. 

Tickets cost $30-$115 and go on sale 10 a.m. Dec. 10.  Click for more info.
