Willie Nelson and his band are a bit happier today. The stuffed armadillo that serves as a mascot for the band has been returned after being stolen after a concert in Las Vegas. On April 2, The Las Vegas Review Journal reported about the incident.
Willie Nelson and his band performed at the Westin Lake Las Vegas on Monday night, and they didn't know that their band mascot was missing until after they left the venue. They called the hotel from the road, and they asked Matt Borland to check the security footage at the hotel to find out who took the armadillo.
By Tuesday morning, the mascot was returned though. A man drove up to the hotel that morning and gave Borland a shoe box with the mascot inside. The man told him to return the armadillo to Nelson. Borland then sent the stuffed armadillo to the singer.
The stuffed armadillo is named 'Ol’ Dillo.' It was taken while Willie was busy talking to fans after the concert. This is the second time a fan has stolen the stuffed mascot in the last year, according to Nashville Gab.The country singer is currently on tour, and he has dates throughout the summer. Tonight, he will play a show in San Diego. This is definitely not a story you hear about every day. It is good to see Nelson has his mascot back.
