Willie Nelson will host a very special 80th birthday show at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe Times Square on June 6.

It is the first time these three generations of Nelsons have shared the stage. In addition, Toad The Wet Sprocket and Robert Randolph will appear at the event while Carlo’s Bakery, the setting of the TLC show Cake Boss will present Nelson with a special cake.
The evening will also kick off the Hard Rock International’s “Artist Spotlight” Willie Nelson merchandise program, benefiting the Biodiesel Alliance and the Animal Welfare Institute.
