The music legend ended his San Diego, California, concert on Saturday night midway through the first song, the 84-year-old singer-songwriter’s rep tells the “San Diego Union-Tribune“, adding that Nelson headed back to his Texas home to recuperate from “a bad cold or the flu.” Nelson cancelled three more planned shows due to the recovery, in Palm Springs, California, as well as Las Vegas and Laughlin shows in Nevada.
ET has reached out to Nelson’s rep.
Last August, the country crooner cited altitude for an abruptly ended performance in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“This is Willie. I am sorry to have to cut the SLC show short tonight,” he wrote on Twitter. “The altitude got to me I am feeling better now and headed for lower ground.”
Breathing issues have plagued Nelson for several years. In 2012, the musician was hospitalized in Denver, Colorado, for respiratory issues.
Get well soon, Willie.
