Willie Nelson Starts Show Then Abruptly Cancels

Willie Nelson suddenly canceled a show Saturday night (Jan. 6) shortly after it began and has now canceled other upcoming dates.

A representative of Willie says that the country icon is dealing with a health issue.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that shortly after he began performing his opening song, “Whiskey River,” during his Saturday night concert at Harrah’s Resort SoCal, Nelson walked offstage, allegedly coughing and experiencing difficulty breathing.
