At age 83, Willie Nelson manages to maintain a rigorous touring and recording schedule. He's planning to release a new album in April, and has shows booked all throughout the year.
But recently, Nelson's health has kept him from keeping up with all of his commitments. In November, he was forced to postpone two concerts due to feeling a little "under the weather."
After that, Nelson seemed to be back to work and was looking forward to a series of shows at the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas. The opening night was set for Saturday (January 28), and was sold out as of January 18.
However, Nelson will no longer be able to perform that night. In a statement posted to his Facebook page, Nelson's team revealed that he has to cancel the Saturday and Sunday (January 29) shows in Vegas.
"We regret to inform fans that...performances of Willie Nelson & Family: Vegas On My Mind have been cancelled due to recent illness and will not be rescheduled," the statement read.
Those with tickets to the cancelled shows should contact their point of purchase in order to obtain a refund. As of right now, Nelson's Vegas performances for February 1, 3, and 4 have not been cancelled. Tickets for those performances are still available for purchase.
We hate to hear that Nelson isn't feeling well. We'll be praying for him to get better soon.
