On Saturday, Jan. 6, Willie Nelson abruptly cut his show in San Diego short after a coughing fit and breathing issues.
Nelson barely started his opening song, “Whiskey River,” before he had to stop the show, reports the San Diego Union-Tribute. Nelson’s publicist said that the singer-songwriter has either “a bad cold or the flu.” He is heading back to his home in Texas to recover.
Nelson also canceled his upcoming shows this week in Palm Springs and Nevada.
Hopefully, he’s well enough to return on tour for his February shows, which start on the 7th.
Get well soon, Willie!
