Ailing Willie Nelson Cancels Dates

Willie Nelson, 68, became ill onstage last Tuesday (Aug. 28) during a concert at the Konocti Harbor Resort in Kelseyville, Calif. Nelson canceled or postponed a handful of dates scheduled Aug. 29-Sept. 3. Nelson’s publicist told the singer has a bronchial infection and plans to resume touring Sept. 29, when he plays Farm Aid at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, Ind. The spokesperson also said The Fresno Bee’s report of Nelson collapsing during his last performance is exaggerated. 09/04/01
