First, the bad news: The second annual Railroad Revival Tour has been derailed.
The eight-stop tour was to feature outlaw country stars Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson playing sold out concerts alongside indie folk rockers Band of Horses and actor John C. Reilly.
Its vintage railroad car was expected to play a Houston-area gig on Oct. 24 in Old Town Spring, which tour creator Dave Conway called "a historical train town," over a stop in Bastrop or a revisit to Austin or Marfa (where the first Railroad Revival Tour stopped).
Organizers cited "certain complications [that] would not permit [them] to host the shows in the manner intended, and that the bands and fans deserved." Full refunds will be offered to all ticketholders.
Now, the good news: Band of Horses has scheduled a show at Houston's House of Blues for that same date. Tickets are now onsale ($20 for general admission, $30 for balcony seating), so get 'em while they're hot.
