NEW YORK (AP) — Willie Nelson has come off his tour because of a “breathing problem.”
The 86-year-old singer 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.”
However, LiveNation says Willie Nelson will still perform at The Outlaw Music Festival scheduled for September 7th at the Saratoga Springs Performaing Arts
The Outlaw Music Festival featuring Willie Nelson & Family, Bonnie Raitt, Phil Lesh & Friends, Alison Krauss and Brothers Osborne will go on as scheduled this September 7th. Unfortunately, Willie had to cancel a handful of shows in August, but he’ll see you on the road again starting in September for the Outlaw Music Festival Tour!
Farm Aid says Nelson will resume his tour Sept. 6.
Nelson will perform at the Farm Aid concert with John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and Bonnie Raitt on Sept. 21 in Wisconsin.
Nelson’s tour is scheduled to end Nov. 29 in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
Nelson canceled his appearance at the Outlaw Music Festival due to illness last summer. He also was forced to cancel several dates in 2018.
