Willie Nelson Walks Off Stage Twice, Bails On North Carolina Show Reportedly Due To ‘Stomach Bug’

Thinking good thoughts for Willie Nelson!!

The music legend was set to perform at the Outlaw Music Festival in Charlotte, North Carolina last night when he walked off stage — twice, reportedly — and eventually canceled the concert altogether, citing health issues.

According to TMZ, Nelson was “under the weather” and couldn’t perform due to a “stomach bug,” and even though he looks pissed off in the video (above) of him walking off stage, it’s not an issue with the crowd or anything.

Nelson had apparently walked off once earlier in the night before re-prepping himself to perform. He then returned to the stage, and ultimately had to walk back off again, clearly unable to perform.

Eventually, fans at the venue were told the 85-year-old country singer wasn’t coming back out, and that the concert was off.

Nelson’s team says he WILL perform Sunday night in Washington, DC, and he’s committed to making good on all the fans in North Carolina who lost out on last night’s concert.

This isn’t the first time Nelson has ended a show prematurely due to health reasons, either.

Thinking good thoughts and sending them your way, Willie — get well soon!!!
