Willie Nelson won’t be on the road again for a couple of weeks as he recovers from an illness.
The country music icon, 84, canceled several concerts after cutting short a show in San Diego over the weekend due to health issues, his rep confirmed to the Daily News.
Nelson is battling “a bad cold or the flu” and is currently at his home in Maui, the publicist said.
The veteran performer ended his concert at Harrah’s Resort SoCal on Saturday without completing his first song, “Whiskey River,” after he began coughing on stage.

Nelson had been scheduled to perform in Rohnert Park, Calif. on Wednesday before heading to gigs in Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday and in Laughlin, Nevada on Sunday, but each of those shows is now scrapped.
He’s set to resume his tour on Feb. 7 in Macon, Georgia. Nelson is scheduled to perform eight concerts overall in February, in addition to tour more in central Texas in April.
The country crooner canceled a number of shows in 2017, including several early on in the year due to an undisclosed illness. He also ended a show early in Salt Lake City last August due to the high altitude.
