One of the most hands-down beloved and legendary figures in country music rolls through town as part of a truly never-ending tour. The (not quite) Red-Headed Stranger is touring behind his newest release, God’s Problem Child, but the man has a lifetime of classics to draw from. Willie Nelson has lived a multitude of lives in his storied career: outlaw country mainstay, Highwaymen anchor, songwriter to the stars, beloved Taco Bell pitchman, concept (and Xmas) album maestro, and duet partner to both Ray Charles and the Great Gonzo. The chance to see an icon of this stature in such an intimate theater venue (instead of, like, an enormodome or outdoor fair stage) is not to be missed.

8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15 | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $59.50-$323
