Country singer Willie Nelson has canceled three upcoming shows scheduled for Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, California due to illness.


Nelson’s publicist Elaine Schock gave no details as to the specifics of the illness, but says the 83-year-old singer plans to be back on the road for his Feb. 16 concert in San Antonio.

This is the second time in recent weeks that the country legend missed shows because of illness. He only played three of his five schedules shows in Las Vegas in late January because of a bad cold.

Nelson is in the middle of a tour that will run through Aug. 6, his last show at the Rockin’ River Music Fest in Merritt, British Columbia, Canada.
