A "breathing problem" has forced Willie Nelson to cancel his tour through early September. The legendary entertainer announced the news on Facebook on Wednesday (August 7th) writing, “To my fans, I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out. I’ll be back." Yesterday (Thursday, August 8th), an update was added which read, "Willie is resting and feeling better. The tour will resume on September 6 in Gilford, NH. Thanks to all the fans for the continued support!"
The September 6th date is the Outlaw Music Festival, which also featues Alison Krauss, Bonnie Raitt and Brothers Osborne.
