Country legend Willie Nelson is set to kick off the 2014 Greek Theatre concert season.

The legendary singer-songwriter-guitarist, known for such immortal offerings as "Crazy," "Hello Walls," "Red Headed Stranger" and "Stardust," performs April 12 at the historic Berkeley venue.

The Texan will be joined at this show by two other critically acclaimed acts — the Drive-By Truckers and Shovels and Rope. It's the only date on Nelson's spring-summer tour that will feature all three acts.

Tickets are $49.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 12 through www.ticketmaster.com. Presale tickets will be available Jan. 9 at www.ticketmaster.com (password is girls).

Nelson is supporting last year's popular "To All the Girls ...," an album that features the country legend in duets with such acclaimed female vocalists as Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Norah Jones, Loretta Lynn and Sheryl Crow.
