Willie Nelson Is ‘Fine’ After Canceling a Show

Willie Nelson was in good condition on Monday morning after he suffered a bout of altitude sickness and was forced to cancel a charity concert in Colorado over the weekend, his publicist, Elaine Schock, said.


“He’s fine,” Ms. Schock said on Monday. “He’s on the road to the next gig, and he’s not in any danger.”


The country music star, who is 79, failed to show up at a private home in Castle Pines Village, Colo., on Saturday night. The disappointed crowd was told the singer had been taken to a hospital because he was “suffering from breathing problems due to the high altitude and emphysema,” the NBC affiliate in Denver reported. The show was a benefit for Dumb Friends League, an animal shelter in the Denver area.


Ms. Schock said Mr. Nelson was headed to Texas, where he was scheduled to appear in Dallas on Tuesday.
