The Outlaw Music Festival featuring Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Phil Lesh & Friends, Alison Krauss and many more will go on as scheduled this September.

Nelson is still due to perform at the Farm Aid concert with John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and Bonnie Raitt on September 21.

In August 2017, the singer-songwriter was also forced to cut short a show in Salt Lake City due to breathing difficulties. "I'll be back. Love, Willie", he wrote. "The altitude got to me", he later explained, adding: "I am feeling better now & headed for lower ground".
