Willie Nelson update — resuming tour in September

By Ree Hines and Yi-Jin Yu

Willie Nelson is going back on the road after he initially canceled his summer concert tour.

On Monday night, the 86-year-old “On the Road Again” singer took to Twitter and explained to his fans that he needed to take a break from life on the road due to a respiratory issue.

“To my fans, Iā€™m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing
problem that I need to have my doctor check out,” he wrote.

But on Tuesday afternoon, Nelson’s Facebook page was updated again. This time, the message to fans read,

“Update: Willie is resting and feeling better.”

Immediately following the good news was an even more exciting update,

“The tour will resume on September 6 in Gilford, NH. Thanks to all
the fans for the continued support!”

The beloved country music legend has been performing with opening act Alison Krauss since the June release of his 69th studio album, “Ride Me Back Home.” He still had 30 shows ahead of him when he made the cancellation announcement just hours after wrapping up a performance in Toledo, Ohio.
