Willie Nelson to return to Cape Girardeau

County singer Willie Nelson will return to the Show-Me Center on March 15.

Nelson last played at the venue in 2006 in front of 2800 loyal fans.

Show-Me Center marketing director Shannon Buford says that he is personally excited about the Nelson show because he is one of his all-time favorite artists.

"He's one of those people that his name has become the standard," Buford says. "If you're talking any kind of music,  and somebody just brings up 'Willie,' they don't even have to finish his name. Everybody knows its Willie Nelson."

3900 seats will be available for the concert.
