Music legend Willie Nelson will return to the Coast for one night only in March.

Nelson will be at the IP Casino Resort at 8 p.m. Friday, March 10. Tickets start at $69 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.

He played two nights at the IP in February during the Coast’s Carnival celebration.

Nelson, who turns 84 in April, released two albums in 2016 — “For The Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price” and “Summertime: Willie Sings Gershwin.” Both were lauded by music critics.

He released a novel, “Pretty Paper: A Christmas Tale” in late 2016. It’s based on the popular Christmas song he wrote, “Pretty Paper.”

An advocate for legalizing marijuana, Nelson also has curated his own brand of cannabis. “Willie’s Reserve” is available in select shops in Colorado and Washington.

You can listen to some of his favorite country songs of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s on Willie’s Roadhouse on SirusXM.
