DARIEN CENTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — With multiple 'Outlaw Music Festival' concerts canceled across the country, Live Nation says 86-year-old Willie Nelson's Darien Lake concert will go on as scheduled.

Nelson canceled some tour dates on Wednesday after his show in Toledo, Ohio due to breathing problems.

"I'm sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out," Nelson posted on his Facebook page late Wednesday evening. "I'll be back."

Nelson is canceling all of his remaining shows in the month of August, keeping his September 8th show at Darien Lake, in tact.

In a statement, Live Nation says, "unfortunately, Willie had to cancel a handful of shows in August, but he’ll see you on the road again starting in September for the Outlaw Music Festival Tour!"

Nelson will be performing with Bonnie Raitt, Phil Lesh and Friends, and Alison Krauss.
