Willie Nelson Cancels Concerts After Coughing Spell

Having difficulty breathing and coughing, Willie Nelson left the stage at Harrah's Southern California Resort in Funner, CA (near San Diego) on Jan. 6 after performing just his opening number, "Whiskey River."

Nelson canceled the next four shows at Grafton Resort & Casino in Rohnert Park, CA (Jan. 10), The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas (Jan. 12-13) and E Center in Laughlin, NV (Jan. 14). His next tour dates pick up on Feb. 7 at Macon City Auditorium in Georgia.

Nelson's publicist Elaine Shock tells CelebStoner that "he's getting over the flu." However, the singer does suffer from emphysema.

His latest album, Willie's Stash, Vol. 2: Willie and the Boys, was released in October. Nelson will turn 85 on Apr. 29.
