WILLE NILE and his amazing band return for not one but two great and different shows in one night! Come to one or better yet, come to both! This is a unique night of classic, energy driven Willie Nile rock n roll that you definitely don’t want to miss.

*4pm show: Willie will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of his 1981 album Golden Down and will play it front to back along with many other Willie Nile fan faves.

*8pm show: Willie will play his critically acclaimed first album, released in 1980, the self-titled Willie Nile, in its entirety along with many other Willie Nile fan faves.

Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townsend, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, Lou Reed and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises. His 2013 album, American Ride, won “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Independent Music Awards, appearing on over one hundred year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 with U2’s Bono calling it “one of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America.”

In November 2014, Willie released an album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. “One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years” said The New Yorker. No Depression raved “Willie Nile’s artistic renaissance continues unabated.”

His 2016 album, World War Willie, appeared on numerous year end top ten lists as did his live shows. As American Songwriter said, “Nile cranks up the volume and tears into these tunes with the same hunger, passion and exuberance he displays in his legendary sweat-soaked shows.” World War Willie was voted “Album Of The Year” by Twangville magazine and the song “Forever Wild” was named “Coolest Song In The World” by Little Steven’s Underground Garage on SiriusXM.

Willie Nile has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: “His live performances are legendary.”

His 13th studio album, New York at Night, was released last year to universal acclaim, and Nile has new album set to drop later this summer.
