Country icon Willie Nelson had to cut short a concert in Salt Lake City on Aug. 13 after suffering respiratory issues.
Fortunately, the 84-year-old singer later explained, “The altitude just got to me.”
The 20,000-capacity USANA Amphitheater is located in West Valley City, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City, with an altitude of 4,300′.
A statement provided by Nelson’s rep read:
“This is Willie. I am very sorry to have to cut the Salt Lake City performance short tonight. The altitude just got to me. I am feeling a lot better now and headed for lower ground.”
