Willie Nelson Cancels Las Vegas Shows Due to Illness

iTunes Festival at SXSW

After canceling two shows, the country music legend says he plans to play the remaining three shows at The Venetian resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

Country music icon Willie Nelson is canceling two Las Vegas shows due to illness.

His publicist Elaine Schock said Thursday that Nelson has a bad cold and won't perform Saturday or Sunday.

He plans to play the remaining three shows — Feb. 1, 3 and 4 — at The Venetian resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The canceled shows have not been rescheduled, and ticket-holders were advised to seek refunds from the point of purchase.

Nelson is 83 and lives in Austin, Texas.

The singer-songwriter behind hits such as "On the Road Again" and "Always on My Mind" told the Associated Press recently that he will have a new album out this spring called God's Problem Child.
