Willie Nelson came out on stage in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday, only to abruptly put down his guitar and walk off stage, much to the dismay of the fans.
In a video posted by a fan in the Outlaw Music Festival, the 85-year-old musician can be seen walking on stage to loud applause from the crowd. He makes his way to the center, puts on his red, white and blue guitar strap and picks up his guitar. However, he seems to change his mind, and quickly put the guitar down. He threw his hat into the audience and walked off stage. It is difficult to say, but the star looked angry as he did.
According to a tweet from Live Nation, Nelson reportedly was ill and could not play. They encouraged fans who were present at the event to hold on to their tickets until a rain check on the date for the show can be announced.
According to TMZ, a number of concertgoers said that he walked off stage earlier in the evening. It also notes that the fans were stuck waiting an hour before someone told them that Nelson would not be returning to the stage.
This is not the first time the disease has prevented the singer from performing. As reported earlier, Nelson had to cancel several tour dates in February 2018. A month before he came to an end at a show in San Diego early and canceled tour dates.
