Country legend Willie Nelson has pulled the plug on his Spring (04) American concerts following pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome.

The AFTER THE FIRE HAS GONE singer, 71, was in such agony during a Las Vegas, Nevada gig on Saturday (08MAY04), he couldn't finish his performance.

CARLOS LARRAZ, a promoter with NATIONAL ARTISTS CORP. says, "Willie Nelson will have surgery to relieve extreme pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome."

Nelson has cancelled the remaining concerts for May and June, which included a performance at the Tennessee music festival Bonnaroo on 11 June.
