Bad news if you were looking forward to seeing Willie Nelson at Outlaw Music Festival. According to CBS 4, the 86-year-old is canceling the remaining dates of his tour due to breathing issues.

That includes the stop at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center on September 20. It remains to be seen if the concert will go on without Willie or if it’s completely canceled. We will let you know as soon as we know.

Alison Krauss, Robert Plant, Brothers Osbourne and Katie Pruitt were also on the bill.
