Willie Nelson’s plans to be “On the Road Again” have been halted due to health reasons.
“Willie canceled the six remaining dates in August,” Elaine Schock, a representative for Nelson, told USA TODAY in a statement. “He will be back on the road in September.”
The singer, who turned 86 in April, shared on Twitter late Wednesday night that he had to nix his tour.
“To my fans, I’m sorry to cancel my tour,” he tweeted, “but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out.”
The musician assured his more than 675,000 followers: “I’ll be back” and signed off, “Love, Willie”.
Nelson had several dates left on his tour, according to his website. The last show was slated for Nov. 29 at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
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
— Willie Nelson (@WillieNelson) August 8, 2019
Nelson was also announced as part of September’s Farm Aid line-up along with Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews.
Last year, Nelson canceled shows due to the flu.
