​Willie Nelson Cancels Upcoming Tour Dates Because of "Breathing Problem"
Country legend Willie Nelson has cancelled his upcoming tour dates due to health concerns.
 
The singer-songwriter revealed the news on Twitter, following his show in Toledo, OH, last night (August 7).
 
"I'm sorry I have to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out," he wrote on Twitter.
 
He also promised, "I'll be back."
 
The 86-year-old Nelson was in the midst the Outlaw Music Festival tour with Alison Krauss, Bonnie Raitt, Promise of the Real and plenty of other special guests.
 
There were 30 dates still remaining. In addition to his own headlining tour, Nelson was also slated to perform at Farm Aid in Wisconsin on September 21, followed by a residency at the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas throughout October.
 
UPDATE (8/9, 10:45 a.m. EDT): Nelson has announced that his tour will resume on September 6 in Gilford, NH. He will, in fact, play at Farm Aid later that month, and the October Las Vegas dates remain unaffected.
