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!
