Willie Nelson cancels 3 California shows because of illness

Willie Nelson has postponed three California shows because of illness.

Publicist Elaine Schock told Associated Press that Nelson will have to miss his three-night stint that had been scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield.

She gave no details on Nelson’s sickness, but said he plans to be back on the road again for a February 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 cancelled two of his five shows in Las Vegas in late January because of a bad cold.

The singer-songwriter behind hits like On The Road Again told the AP recently that he’ll release a new album this spring called God’s Problem Child.
