The country singer took to Twitter Wednesday night to announce the cancellation of his tour due to a "breathing problem." Nelson, 86, apologized for the news, but said he would seek medical attention.
Nelson's tour was slated to end in November, and he was expected to perform at the Farm Aid concert in September alongside John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Neil Young.
To my fans,— Willie Nelson (@WillieNelson) August 8, 2019
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
This isn't the first time ol' Willie's pressed pause on his music to focus on his physical wellbeing. Nelson cancelled several shows last year, citing health issues.
As always, fans can expect Nelson to return. In his tweet, he promised "I'll be back."
