The Waylon Jennings Live At The US Festival, June 4, 1983 DVD includes 22 songs and 60 minutes total running time and features and essential moment in country music history.
Held over two weekends in 1982 and 1983, the US Festival was funded and organized by Apple Computer’s Steve Wozniak, who also organized the accompanying technology exposition, and the construction of a brand-new outdoor venue in Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernadino, CA. Nearly every musical genre was represented by bands as diverse as U2, Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne, Willie Nelson, Van Halen, The Police and The Clash. Over the combined seven days of the festival, more than one million people passed through the entrance gates.
June 4, 1983, was “Country Day” at the US Festival. Waylon’s set was one of the day’s highlights, with performances of several of his hits, including “Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Out Of Hand,” “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” “I’ve Always Been Crazy,” and “Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love).” Waylon was also joined onstage by wife Jessi Colter for a particularly memorable rendition of “Storms Never Last.”
