Texas country outlaw Willie Nelson has canceled two concerts in Las Vegas.
Elaine Shock, the musician's publicist, told the Associated Press he has a bad cold and will not be performing Saturday, Jan. 28 or Sunday, Jan. 29. He is still scheduled to play the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas Feb. 1, 3 and 4, according to his website.
At 83 years old, Nelson hasn't slowed down on touring or releasing new music. (He's expected to release a new album called God's Problem Child in April.) But the Red Headed Stranger has canceled several appearances in recent months due to illness, including one in Midland, Texas in November.
Fans in Dallas, however, got to see Nelson when he stopped through a sold-out, two-night run at the Granada Theater in January. (P.S. it was amazing!) Health permitting, he'll be back in the area in March to play the WinStar World Casino in Oklahoma.
