Willie Nelson, 91, continues to cancel tour dates citing unknown illness

Willie Nelson has canceled another tour date, and a comeback date is not in the cards.

Just hours before Nelson was scheduled to perform in Virginia Beach on Wednesday, the 91-year-old musician informed his fans via social media that he would not be traveling as scheduled.

It had only been a few days since Nelson canceled the Georgia leg of his tour because he was “not feeling well.”

The first bit of bad news came on June 21, when Nelson’s opening gig of the Outlaw Music Festival Tour had to be postponed.

“We regret to inform you that Willie Nelson is not feeling well and has been advised to rest for the next four days per doctor’s orders,” a social media post stated. “After a quick recovery, he is expected to resume his Outlaw Music Festival tour next week.”


Less than a week later, Nelson did, however, announce yet another cancellation.



“Willie Nelson is not scheduled to play at tonight’s Virginia Beach event. We hope to see Willie back on the road shortly.

Despite Nelson’s incapacity to perform, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, and Celisse were all scheduled to appear. Lukas Nelson, the late great’s son, was also supposed to play a solo set in addition to some of his greatest hits.

As of June 27, Nelson’s website still displays June 28 in Syracuse, New York as the date of his upcoming tour; however, because of his uncertain return date, it is unclear if Nelson will be able to make it.

Whatever it is keeping Willie Nelson from performing, we hope he recovers shortly.
