Ol’ Willie plays Marymoor

It’s always a good time when Willie Nelson is on the road again. The 80-year-old country legend known for such hits as “Funny How Time Slips Away,” “Hello Walls,” “Pancho & Lefty” and “On the Road Again” brings his family band (Nelson is shown here with son Lucas) back to the Northwest for a rip-roaring romp through his vast musical catalog. The Country Music Hall of Famer often packs nearly 30 songs into his concert, among them “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” from the 2012 album, “Heroes.” Opening for Nelson are The Wild Feathers, a five-piece Americana band from Nashville with a new single, “The Ceiling.”

7 p.m. Friday at Marymoor Park, 6046 W. Lake Sammamish Parkway N.E., Redmond; $45-$65 (www.axs.com/events).

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this post misstated the origin of The Wild Feathers.
