REVIEW: Willie Nelson at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

I reviewed the man, the legend, Willie Nelson for The Kansas City Star. He performed at the Kauffman Center’s Muriel Kauffman Theatre with his family band.

He’s a showman, and he and his family band put on a smooth act, but presented the material without any dross. No pandering to the audience, no talking about how awesome the venue was – just music for 90 minutes. Give the people what they want.

I only hope I have half of what he’s got when I hit 78.
