Country superstar Willie Nelson celebrated turning 70 yesterday (30APR03) by performing at a concert.

Instead of taking a day off to put his feet up, the energetic Grammy winner played a show at America's HORSESHOE CASINO in Bossier City, Louisiana - one of more than 200 dates this year (03).

He says, "We've been doing this so long it's like regular routine. It's good for us to keep hitting it every day.

"Just living 70 years is a pretty good accomplishment to be talking about, and laughing about it is something too. There's a lot of people who'd like to be 70 and having as much fun as I'm having."
