Following his show at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio on Wednesday (Aug 7), Willie Nelson announced on social media that he would be cancelling his tour.

“I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out,” he wrote.

This isn’t the first time the 86-year-old country legend has canceled tour dates.

In August 2017, he ended a concert in Salt Lake City early due to respiratory issues. In January 2018, Nelson left the stage in San Diego after singing just one song and canceled the remainder of his January dates and all of his February dates.

At the time, the singer’s publicist stated via a press release that the singer-songwriter was suffering from the flu and required “a few extra weeks to recover completely.”

Nelson announced a summer tour with Alison Krauss back in April. They had dates scheduled all the way through August 17. Fans were left worried about the cancellation not only because they’re concerned for Nelson’s health, but because he has a busy schedule ahead of him.

His Outlaw Music Festival tour kicks off on September 6 for nine dates, not to mention his annual Farm Aid, which is on September 21.

Well, Willie’s team is already hearing fans’ concerns and letting them know on Twitter exactly when to expect him back on the stage.

The tweet read, “Update: Willie is resting and feeling better.  The tour will resume on September 6 in Gilford, NH.”

We wish Willie the best and are so glad that he’s already feeling better!
