Almost on the road again: Willie Nelson delays Pompano Beach concert

Country-music icon Willie Nelson has postponed his concert on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater, citing lingering effects of the flu that forced him to cancel several shows last month. The new performance date is March 2, when tickets purchased for the original concert will be honored.

The postponement was one of eight February shows that Nelson could not perform, including six in Florida.

“He is up and about and looks as healthy as ever, but his doctor has determined that his voice needs more time to recuperate to give the performances you all love seeing,” a representative for Nelson said.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. Pompano Beach concert, presented by AEG, cost $49.50-$99.50 at AXS.com.

At 84, Nelson remains one of the most vital performers in country music. His most recent release, “Willie Nelson and the Boys (Willie's Stash, Vol. 2),” is a collaboration album with sons Lukas and Micah that pays tribute to music written by some of his favorite Hanks: Williams, Cochran, Locklin and Snow.

He’ll also be heard on the album, "Johnny Cash: Forever Words," which sets Cash poetry, lyrics and letters to music performed by Nelson, Chris Cornell, Rosanne Cash, Elvis Costello, Alison Krauss & Union Station and others. It’s set for an April 6 release.
