BAKERSFIELD, California (AP) — Willie Nelson has postponed three California shows because of illness.
Publicist Elaine Schock told The Associated Press that Nelson would have to miss his three-night stint that had been scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield.
Schock gave no details on Nelson’s sickness, but said he plans to be back on the road again for a Feb. 16 concert at a San Antonio rodeo.
It’s the second time in recent weeks the 83-year-old country legend has missed shows because of sickness — he canceled two of his five shows in Las Vegas in late January because of a bad cold.
The singer-songwriter told The AP recently that he will release a new album this spring called “God’s Problem Child.”
