NEW YORK (AP/WBTW) – Willie Nelson has canceled his tour, including his scheduled appearance at The Florence Center, because of a “breathing problem.”

The Florence Center confirmed the Willie Nelson & The Family/Alison Krauss/Cassidy Daniels concert scheduled for Monday has been canceled. For patrons who have purchased tickets, refunds will be available at the original point of purchase.

The 86-year-old singer apologized on Twitter late Wednesday, writing “I need to have my doctor check out.” Nelson had just finished performing with Alison Krauss in Toledo, Ohio, and he was next scheduled to appear Friday in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He wrote “I’ll be back.”

Nelson was due to perform at the Farm Aid concert with John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and Bonnie Raitt on Sept. 21. His tour was scheduled to end on Nov. 29 in Thackerville, Oklahoma

Nelson canceled his appearance at the Outlaw Music Festival due to illness last summer. He also was forced to cancel several dates in 2018.

Nelson had a show scheduled at the Florence Center on August 12, according to the center’s website.
