Those planning on attending Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard's Django and Jimmie Tour may have to make new plans.

It was announced today that the tour, which is supposed to kick off tomorrow, October 15th at the Florence Civic Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, has been postponed. 

We have just been informed that Willie Nelson has a medical issue and will be rescheduling the first half of his tour dates,” says Nick Hooker, Senior Marketing Manager for SMG Florence Civic Center.

This show in particular has been rescheduled to April 6, 2016. 

“We know this is last-minute and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but our hearts and best wishes go to Willie Nelson and his family during this time of health concern," Hooker continues. "Get well soon Willie, we can’t wait to see you in April alongside Merle Haggard."

The venue says in a press release that fans should keep their current tickets and plan on attending the performance in April since Nelson and Haggard have already committed to the new date. 

“To all our fans, we hope to see you in April for this incredible show, however we understand these unfortunate conditions may affect some attendees so refunds will be issued to those requiring one at their original point of purchase,” a message from the Florence Civic Center Box Office Management.

Details have not been revealed about Willie's medical issues, but it is not life-threatening and will require several weeks to recover. Hooker explained he will be giving updates as he finds them out.

As for the other shows, rescheduled dates have not been announced.

Get well soon, Willie! Can't wait to see you back on the road!

Lyrics Below

I'm a kid with a guitar
Trying to play, when they ask
Where does your style come from?

I know what you mean
Because I learned to sing
Listening to blue, yodel number one
We love Hank and Lefty
Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, and Johnny Cash
But if we had to pin point
The start of who we are
Or who we go by

The Django and Jimmie
Has Mississippi
A young singing Brakeman
A jazz playing gypsy
Might not have been
A Merle or a Willie
If not for a Django and Jimmie

Through the twenties and thirties
Jimmie sang his way to the top
In spite of those old TB blues
Django was a star
He burned up a guitar
With just two good fingers to use
You can't turn back time
Or put more sand in the glass
But sometimes at night
I close my eyes and go back

The Django and Jimmie
Has Mississippi
A young singing Brakeman
A jazz playing gypsy
Might not have been
A Merle or a Willie
If not for a Django and Jimmie
