November 9, 2011
imgOn November 15 Shout! Factory will release two momentous concert performances on DVD for the first time, from two of the world’s most beloved country legends, Willie Nelson Live At The US Festival, 1983 and Waylon Jennings Live At The US Festival, June 4, 1983. With 23 songs and a total running time of 80 minutes on Willie Nelson, and 22 songs and 60 minutes total running time on Waylon Jennings, these releases capture an unforgettable moment in country music history.
 
Held over two weekends in 1982 and 1983, the US Festival was funded and organized by Apple Computer’s Steve Wozniak, who also organized the accompanying technology exposition, and the construction of a brand-new outdoor venue in Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernadino, CA. Nearly every musical genre was represented by bands as diverse as U2, Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne, Willie Nelson, Van Halen, The Police and The Clash. Over the combined seven days of the festival, more than one million people passed through the entrance gates. 
 
June 4, 1983, was “Country Day” at the US Festival, featuring artists such as such as Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Hank Williams, Jr., and Emmylou Harris, and the headliner was none other than the legendary Willie Nelson. This concert showcases the country music superstar at his peak, including many of his best-loved songs and greatest hits, such as “Whiskey River,” “Bloody Mary Morning,” and “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain,” and to the excitement of the crowd was joined by Waylon for “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” and “Good Hearted Woman.”
 
Waylon’s set was one of the day’s highlights, with performances of several of his hits, including “Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Out Of Hand,” “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” “I’ve Always Been Crazy,” and “Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love).” Waylon was also joined onstage by wife Jessi Colter for a particularly memorable rendition of “Storms Never Last.”
