KVUE – The original Nutty Brown Amphitheater location will be released in full force in November, with a stacked lineup of Texas country legends set to perform on the venue’s final weekend.
The amphitheater will close its doors on Sunday, November 28, after more than 20 years of live music. To kick off the farewell party, Pat Green, Kevin Fowler and Jon Wolfe will perform on site on Friday, November 26. The following evening, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue and Roger Creager will perform.
“Nutty Brown was one of the first places that took a picture of us,” says Randy Rogers, “the first place in Austin to support the Randy Rogers Band and believe in the music we made. It is an honor to be the last performers of such a historic and important part of the Austin music community.
Tickets for Nutty Brown’s final two shows go on sale Friday, October 1 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available for purchase on the site website.
The venue – which sits on a 20-acre piece of HEB-owned land on the corner of US 290 and Nutty Brown Road – has hosted thousands of acts over the years, from Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. at Ice Cube.
Nutty Brown owner Mike Farr said HEB plans to open a store where the location is currently located.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better owner and partner than HEB has been over the past six years,” says Farr. “They really went beyond supporting live music.”
The team behind the amphitheater is develop a room at Round Rock at the old McNeil Park. The new site will have a larger concept than the current location and is expected to open in 2022.
