Willie Nelson has canceled his February tour dates, “as he requires a few extra weeks to recover completely from the flu,” according to a press release from his rep.
“He is up and about and looks as healthy as ever but his doctor has determined that his voice needs more time to recuperate to give the performances you all love seeing. Willie will resume the tour in early March. Willie Nelson says, ‘I will see you all down the road.’” The canceled dates are listed below.
The 84-year-old singer/songwriter canceled all of his January concerts after becoming short of breath during the first song of a show in Southern California early in the month. In August, he also stopped a show in Salt Lake City due to respiratory problems and was briefly hospitalized. He tweeted later, “The altitude got to me I am feeling better now & headed for lower ground.”
