Luck Reunion announced on Wednesday (March 18) that it will be holding its first-ever virtual concert in place of its annual Texas-based event due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

Luck Presents: 'Til Further Notice will be live-streamed on Thursday (March 19), beginning at 6 p.m. CT. The online concert will feature call-in sets by the likes of Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, Jewel and more, with artists donating digital tips from fans to charities of their choice.

"Everyone in our community is gutted. We are gutted. We couldn’t just sit around on Thursday when our event was supposed to take place, knowing that other producers and artists in our industry are also isolated and out of work," said Luck Productions co-founder Matt Bizer in a statement. "This is our effort to bring back a bit of the Luck spirit, and to try to raise money for the people and charities we care about so deeply."

The news comes less than a week after organizers announced the annual "anti-festival" held in Willie Nelson's backyard would be canceled as a result of the global pandemic.

Artists confirmed for 'Til Further Notice include Paul Simon and Edie Brickell, Nathanial Rateliff, Jewel, Micah Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Willie Nelson, Devon Gilfillian, Thomas Csobra, Tami Nelson, Sunny War, Ian Ferguson, Tre Burt, David Ramirez, Katie Pruitt, Nikki Lane, Early James, Paul Cauthen, Randy Houser, Margo Price & Jeremy Ivey, Lucinda Williams and this year's Southwest Artist on the Rise to Luck winners Ida Mae.
