Willie Nelson is a true country music legend. Unfortunately, he jut made a tragic announcement that has fans all over the world praying for him.
Unfortunately, Willie’s fans just found out that his main man Merle Haggard tragically passed away. Willie and other close acquaintances paid their respects in a private funeral that was just held.
Willie Nelson’s fans are alo now learning that the country legend is continuing to have serious medical issues, including emphysema and repeated bouts of pneumonia, which have continued to decline. Many of his shows were just cancelled.
Earlier this year Willie was supposed to tour with Merle Haggard as part of their 2015 Django and Jimmie Tour, but the medical concerns for Willie were too serious to ignore. Willie Nelson needs our prayers, now!
His January message about his conditions effecting his tour dates read:
“We have just been informed that Willie Nelson has a medical issue and will be rescheduling the first half of his tour dates,” states Nick Hooker, senior marketing manager for the Florence Civic Center in Florence, S.C., where Nelson and Haggard were scheduled to kick off their tour on Thursday (Oct. 15). “We know this is last-minute, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but our hearts and best wishes go to Willie Nelson and his family during this time of health concern.”[…]
Nelson’s rep has confirmed the news to The Boot, noting that in addition to the Florence show, Nelson and Haggard’s concerts in Roanoke, Va., on Oct. 16 at Berglund Center Coliseum, and in Reading, Pa., on Oct. 17 at Santander Arena, will be affected. She confirmed that the rest of their tour is on schedule, and had no additional details as to Nelson’s health issue.
