Willie Nelson collapsed on stage during his gig at the Palace Indian Gaming Center in Lemoore, California, August 30th. As a result, Willie has decided to cancel his last five California dates and return to Austin to get some much needed rest. Doctors blame a slight case of pneumonia as the cause for the collapse.

Willie’s next scheduled gig will be his annual Farm Aid benefit in Noblesville, Indiana, at the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre (formerly Deer Creek) on September 29.

Get well, Willie!
