PRESS RELEASE: Wausau's Willie Nelson performance postponed to October


WAUSAU (PRESS RELEASE)--Music superstar Willie Nelson has encountered an unanticipated scheduling conflict and has been forced to postpone next week's performances, including the one at Wausau's Grand Theater on ARTSblock this Tuesday evening, March 23.

These dates are being moved to the fall, shortly after Nelson's annual FarmAid festival.  The new Wausau date will be Wednesday, October 6, 2010.  Please check on for further information regarding his tour schedule.

Ticketholders may retain their tickets for the October show or contact the ARTSblock Ticket Office to arrange a full refund or exchange for another ARTSblock-sponsored event at the Grand Theater.

Recognizing the inconvenience of this late notice, the ticket office will exchange Willie Nelson tickets for seats at the Thursday evening (March 25) performance of Gladys Knight at no additional charge.

"I'm assured that Willie Nelson was reluctant to change everyone's plans," said ARTSblock executive director Jim O'Connell.  "We're very pleased that we were able to find another date so quickly to bring this legend to Central Wisconsin."

The ARTSblock Ticket Office is located at 401 North Fourth Street in Downtown Wausau. 

Hours are 9:00 am to noon on Saturday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. 

Phone 715 / 842 – 0988 or (toll-free) 888 / 239 – 0421.
