Willie Nelson, 86, has been forced to cancel his remaining August tour dates.

The nine-time Grammy winner shared the news via Twitter, writing:

To my fans,
I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out.
I’ll be back
Love,
Willie

Following reports that his entire tour had been canceled, his publicist later clarified his statement to Country Now, sharing that he has only canceled the remain six dates in August and that he will resume his current touring schedule beginning September 6.

This isn’t the first time the legendary performer has been sidelined by illness. He was forced to cancel a number of shows in 2017 and 2018 due to respiratory issues.

Willie Nelson’s latest album, Ride Me Back Home, was released in June.
