Willie not so much...even his band sucked. Most songs unrecognizable. Had to leave early, could not bear such a horrible performance of rambling lyrics, bad guitar solos, and him waitinf for audience to sing his most famous lines. Painful to watch.

Hour and half rain delay. Alison wonderful as expected. Willie was a disappointment. Maybe it was the late hour, maybe age. He didn't "sing" a single song. Just gravelly voice said the words. It was ok I guess, but definitely not worth the $200+ ticket price. No encore instead said good night waved and wandered aimlessly off stage. He knew his performance wasn't worthy of an encore. Rather disappointing.

Show started out great!! Alison Krause was amazing!! However, after being excited to see Willie Nelson for the first time, we were greatly disappointed. As commented before, he had the audience sing his most famous lines. And his songs were more spoken than sung. I didn't get to hear the wonderful songs I've always enjoyed. I wish I saw him years ago before he seemed so uninterested.

YUM CENTER, MAY 23, 2018

Alison Krauss was wonderful. She played about hour and twenty minutes. Willie was a huge disappointment. I assumed by him still touring, he could,still sing and perform. He talked in a slurred voice most of the words and the song selection was odd nothing really flowed. The band played instructionals several times. He was on stage just short of an hour. People around us actually left. It was just sad to see a legend struggle so badly on stage.

2.0 star rating Long-time fan from Louisville, Kentucky


The fans of Allison Kraus seemed to enjoy her performance. It was not my thing. I thought she was more bluegrass, but instead basically played only country, gospel and hymns. Willie Nelson's performance was disappointing. He talked through his songs, and his guitar was often behind, or ahead of, the beat. I've seen him before in concert and really enjoyed it. Not true for last night (5/23/18) in Louisville though.
