AUSTIN (KXAN) — Singer and songwriter Willie Nelson has canceled the rest of his 2019 tour due to a “breathing problem.”

He tweeted out the news late Wednesday night.

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

This isn’t the first time the musician has canceled shows due to a breathing problem. Nelson canceled 2018 dates due to an illness.

That illness continued with flu-like symptoms.

The 2019 “Club Luck Tour” was set to run the rest of the year into November.

Nelson tweeted that he will have a doctor check out the problem and said “I’ll be back.”
