HUNTINGTON -- Neil Young's wife, Pegi, has been announced as the opening act for Willie Nelson, who is bringing his latest tour to the Huntington's Big Sandy Superstore Arena on Friday, April 5.

Young's band, The Survivors, features keyboard player Spooner Oldham, as well as bassist Rick Rosas, guitarist Kelvin Holly and drummer Phil Jones. The band, which performed Tuesday on CBS' "The Late Show with David Letterman," is doing a string of dates with Nelson.

Tickets are on sale now for the 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 5, concert featuring Willie Nelson and Family, which includes Country Music Hall of Famer Willie Nelson, his sister, Bobbie (on piano) and his son Lukas on guitar, among the band members.

Nelson last played Huntington in 2007 with Ray Price and Merle Haggard. He's since sold out several shows at both the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland as well as the Clay Center in Charleston.

Tickets are $39.75 and $49.75, and fees may apply. Go online at www.ticketmaster.com or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.
