WEDS NIGHT:

Country music legend Willie Nelson, 86, has abruptly cancelled his summer-fall tour which was supposed to begin this weekend.

He wrote on Twitter: “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
Love,
Willie”

Willie — whose tour started on August 1st– was supposed to play on Friday in Grand Rapids, Michigan and finish up with a bunch of dates in late October in Las Vegas with a family show. Allison Krauss is his opening act. The tour is still on sale on ticketmaster.com, so the decision to cancel must have been last minute. He had Farm Aid lined up as a star attraction, and OutlawFest.

This isn’t the first time that Willie has cancelled shows without warning. In January and February 2018 he pulled the plug on tours. In May 2018 he walked off stage citing breathing problems.

The last few weeks, Willie and daughter Paula Nelson have had a hit on iTunes with their duet of “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” from the HBO series “Big Little Lies.”

Willie has certainly smoked a lot of weed, but he’s a true Legend, a fine person and someone we can’t live without. Feel better, Willie! Take care of yourself, young man!

Meantime check out Willie’s son Lukas and his band Promise of the Real.
