A later post on Facebook said, "Willie is resting and feeling better. The tour will resume on September 6 in Gilford, NH. Thanks to all the fans for the continued support!"
Nelson canceled shows in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Friday; Huntington, West Va. on Saturday and Florence, S.C. on Monday. All shows were with Allison Krauss.
