Willie Nelson has added some more dates to his “Outlaw Music Festival Tour,” and the Philadelphia area got a little love this time around.

Nelson and co. will now bring the tour to Camden’s BB&T Pavilion on Sunday, Sept. 17. The lineup for that show will be Willie Nelson & Family, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Particle Kid, and other groups yet to be announced.

The first-ever Outlaw Music Festival took place last September at Scranton’s Montage Mountain, but did not tour the country. As Nelson said in a release about the tour, the acts involved “had such a blast launching and playing last year’s Outlaw Music Festival in Scranton, we had to take it out on the road.”

Keith Wortman, CEO of co-organizer Blackbird Presents, meanwhile, said that organizers “made it our mission” to bring the festival to the rest of the country. Aside from Camden, the tour will also stop in Dallas, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Jones Beach, New York. A Hersheypark Stadium show is also scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 10.

Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, May 22 at 10 a.m via Ticketmaster, the BB&T Pavilion box office, or by phone at 800-745-3000.
