Musician Willie Nelson cuts show short, blames high altitude

He is scheduled to perform in Savannah on Oct. 20 with special guest Dwight Yoakam

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Willie Nelson is blaming Utah’s high altitude for forcing him to cut a performance near Salt Lake City short. Nelson ended his show early at the USANA Amphitheatre in suburban West Valley City on Sunday night.

He later apologized in a statement posted to his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The 84-year-old country music legend explained: “The altitude got to me. I am feeling better now and headed for lower ground.” Nelson’s publicist didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment Monday.

Nelson was forced to cancel several concerts earlier this year because of what his publicist said was a bad cold.

He is scheduled to perform in Savannah on Oct. 20 at the Savannah Civic Center with special guest Dwight Yoakam.
