Country legend Willie Nelson has axed a string of dates on his current tour due to illness.
The singer/songwriter has apologized to fans after calling off gigs from Tuesday through to Saturday and vowed to reschedule as soon as possible in a post on his official website.

The notice does not specify if it is Nelson himself who has fallen ill.

Nelson was due to make stops in Wyoming, Colorado and Kansas. Shows slated to take place after Saturday will go ahead as planned.
