Willie Nelson to Perform at Lone Star Park

Native Texan Willie Nelson has been booked to perform at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie on April 5 as part of the track's "Texas Legends Weekend."

The concert by Nelson, one of country music's top stars for some five decades, is scheduled to begin following the live racing program that has a first race post time of 6:30 p.m. Lone Star patrons who pay the regular $3 admission charge can stay for the concert at no extra charge; there is a $10 admission fee after 9:00 p.m. on the night of the concert, which is scheduled to begin at approximately 11:00 p.m.

The same weekend, Lone Star Park is staging a sparring session between races April 6, featuring local boxing hero Paulie Ayala.
