Willie Nelson Postpones Tour Due To Medical Issue

Willie Nelson’s first of his upcoming shows with Merle Haggard on the Django and Jimmie Tour have been called off. It was reported that the “On the Road Again” singer has an unknown medical issue.

I have no additional details but it is only the first three dates,” a rep for Nelson says. “The rest of the tour is on schedule.”

The Florence Civic Center in Florence, S.C. has provided additional information from where the duo was scheduled to kick off their tour tonight, Thursday, Oct. 15th. It is has since been reported that the show has been rescheduled for April 6, 2016.

This is all news to us at the moment and we’re still getting details on Willie’s medical concern. We’ve been told this is not life-threatening, but will require several weeks to fully recover,” Nick Hooker, Senior Marketing Manager for the venue, says. “We will keep you updated as more information comes to light.”

Fans planning to attend the Django and Jimmie Tour kickoff show can keep their tickets for the April date.

Shows in Roanke, Va., at the Berglund Center Coliseum, Oct. 16th and Reading, Penn., at Santander Arena, Oct. 17th have also been affected. The show scheduled for Oct. 21st in Bloomington, Ind., is still scheduled as far as we understand.

We know this is last-minute and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but our hearts and best wishes go to Willie Nelson and his family during this time of health concern,” Hooker adds. “Get well soon Willie, we can’t wait to see you in April alongside Merle Haggard.”

Nelson, 82, has been very reliable and has remained healthy for the most part throughout the last ten years.  The last time he canceled shows was back in 2012 after being hospitalized with breathing troubles.

Get well soon Willie! We wish you a speedy recovery!
