Before he jumps the train and rides the rails for a week, Willie will be performing his annual Farm Aid concert benefiting America's family farmers on September 22. This year's show will be held at Hershey Park Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and will feature sets by John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and several others.
And fans who can't make either show but would like to travel in Willie-style will be happy to know they could purchase Willie's longtime tourbus, the legendary "Honeysuckle Rose" this coming Labor Day weekend. Foxnews.com reports that the bus, which carried Willie up and down America's roads from 1986-1999, will hit the auction block at the Auctions America event in Auburn, Ind. Labor Day weekend. The 40 ft. RV features sleeping accommodations for six, a standup shower, audio/visual equipment from the era, and is adorned with western-themed murals. When it was renovated a few years ago, apparently a box of marijuana was also found hidden in a light fixture aboard the bus, but we doubt that's included in the sale.
