NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Willie Nelson has canceled several dates on his tour because of a “breathing problem.” But the show will go on in New Hampshire for the country music legend.
Nelson apologized on Twitter late Wednesday, writing “I need to have my doctor check out.” Nelson had just finished performing with Alison Krauss in Toledo, Ohio, and he was next scheduled to appear Friday in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He wrote “I’ll be back.”
To my fans,
I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out.
I’ll be back
— Willie Nelson (@WillieNelson) August 8, 2019
Despite the health issue, the 86-year-old singer is still scheduled to play the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, N.H. on September 6 as part of the Outlaw Music Festival, the venue confirmed to WBZ-TV. The festival includes Bonnie Raitt, Alison Krauss, and Brothers Osborne.
Nelson canceled his appearance at the Outlaw Music Festival due to illness last summer. He also was forced to cancel several dates in 2018.
