The fact that Willie Nelson recently penned the tune “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” serves as proof that some things in life remain comfortingly constant, like Nelson’s laid-back, warbly voice, his wry sense of humor and his penchant for pot. That said, this show likely will be a more buttoned-up affair, as it’s Nelson’s first time headlining Disney Hall. He’ll be joined by members of his family, including son Lukas Nelson, whose band Promise of the Real opens the show. There’s no telling what surprises the 78-year-old country crooner has up his sleeve, but it’s a safe bet he’ll pull out some standards from his most recent album, Remember Me, Vol. 1, and a classic or two like the ramblin’-man anthem “On the Road Again.”  by Laura Ferreiro
