On The Road Again? Willie Nelson Cancels Shows
83-year-old Willie Nelson is on the road again, but has canceled a three-night run at Buck Owen's Crystal Palace in Bakersfield scheduled for February 7, 8, and 9, due to illness. Nelson had also canceled a pair of Las Vegas performances at the end of January, due to a cold.
The music legend does have a lengthy touring schedule on the books through this summer, including a stop on his birthday, April 29, at Stagecoach in Indio, California. That show will come one day after he releases his new album, God's Problem Child.
Nelson's publicist Elaine Shock gave no details of Nelson's illness, but said he is planning to be on the road again by February 16 when he is scheduled to perform at a rodeo in San Antonio.
Here's a cool video of Willie performaing "On The Road Again" at the Grand Ole Opry a few years back:
