Willie Nelson Cancels Shows Due to Undisclosed Illness on Doctor's Orders

Willie Nelson, the 91-year-old country music legend, will not be opening the 2024 Outlaw Music Festival Tour due to an unspecified illness. The tour's first show was scheduled for June 21 at the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, Georgia, featuring artists such as Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Allison Krauss, and Celisse. Nelson's team announced on social media that he was advised to rest for four days but is expected to make a quick recovery and join the tour next week.

In Nelson's absence, Lukas Nelson and the Family Band will perform a special set featuring Willie Nelson's classics and other songs. The Outlaw Music Festival will continue as planned, running until September 20, with additional performances by John Mellencamp, Billy Strings, Brittney Spencer, and Southern Avenue. Fans have shown support on social media, expressing their well-wishes for Nelson's recovery.
