Van the Man is part of the lineup for a newly announced September 10 concert at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The show will mark the first time Morrison and Nelson will share a stage, and will be Van’s only 2017 appearance on the East Coast. Expect the two music legends to team up for a number of collaborative performances.

“I’ve been a huge fan of Van’s for as long as I can remember,” says Nelson in a statement. “I’m thrilled to be with him on this incredible lineup in Hershey.” Other artists on the bill include Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, Particle Kid and Nelson’s son Lukas and his group Promise of the Real.

Tickets for the Hershey edition of the Outlaw Music Festival Tour go on sale this Friday, June 16. The trek currently features five events in July, kicking off July 2 in Dallas, and five in September. As previously reported, Bob Dylan will be taking part in Outlaw Music Festival shows on July 8 and 9, respectively, in Detroit and Milwaukee.
