Fans Won't Let Willie Slow Down

CMT reports Willie Nelson is playing those cancelled Midwest Shows after all.

Nelson's representatives attributed the cancellations to exhaustion, concert promoters said. "He got bombarded with e-mails, calls and requests, and he decided he didn't want to let the fans down," promoter Jeff Fortier told WDAF-TV in Kansas City. Also back on Nelson's schedule are shows on Sept. 21 in Lake Ozark, Mo., Sept. 22 in LaSalle, Ill., Sept. 25 in Sioux City, Iowa, and Sept. 26 in Rapid City, S.D. According to the Web site for the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua concert series in Bayfield, Wis., his Sept. 23 show is canceled there, although it was listed on the tour page of Nelson's official Web site late Friday (Sept. 14).
