The singer/songwriter scrapped two gigs in Las Vegas last month (Jan17) and a three-show stint in Bakersfield, California in early February (17).

The 83-year-old also pulled two concerts in Arizona and New Mexico, set for last weekend (10-11Feb17).

However, the singer's publicist tells CNN he will take to the stage at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo in Texas on Thursday (16Feb17) after battling "a cold". Following the concert, Nelson will resume his Willie Nelson & Family Tour, which includes 27 upcoming dates.
