Willie Nelson, continously the "victim" of celebrity death hoaxes, had a bit of a scare last night (Aug 14th) at his show in Utah. The legend had just started his show at the USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City when he aburptly left the stage. Later in a tweet, he apologized claiming it was the higher altitude that "got to me". Sources report the 84 year old was treated at a local hospital although the singers camp has not confirmed or denied this.
This is Willie I am sorry to have to cut the SLC show short tonight The altitude got to me I am feeling better now & headed for lower ground— Willie Nelson (@WillieNelson) August 14, 2017
Fans tweeted in response supporting the legend and sending well wishes!
