video - Willie Nelson looks angry when he walks off stage at concert, claims illness

Willie Nelson came out on stage in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday only to abruptly put down his guitar and walk off stage, much to the dismay of fans. In a video posted by a fan at the Outlaw Music Festival, the 85-year-old musician can be seen walking onto stage to uproarious applause from the crowd. He makes his way to center stage, puts on his red, white and blue guitar strap and picks up his guitar. However, he seems to change his mind quickly and puts the guitar down. He threw his hat into the audience and then walked off stage for good. It’s hard to tell, but the star looked angry when he did so. According to a tweet from Live Nation, Nelson was allegedly ill and couldn’t play. They encouraged fans who attended the event to hold on to their tickets until a rain check date for the show can be announced. According to TMZ, some concert goers said that he walked off stage earlier in the evening as well. It also notes that fans were stuck waiting an hour before someone told them that Nelson would not be returning to the stage. This isn’t the first time that illness has prevented the singer from performing. As previously reported, Nelson had to cancel several tour dates in February of 2018. A month prior, he ended a show in San Diego early and canceled further tour dates. You can watch Nelson leave the stage in North Carolina below. foxnews

I like Wille and his music, but his heavy use of Marijuana should be a warning to all of those other users who think this is a free ride. Yes, he is up in years, but he might be in better health if he had been an abstainer and not a user. Look what Colorado has given itself with its Marijuana laws; homeless tokers by the numbers, sleeping in parking lots and being routed out by the police in the mornings where they disappear into the landscape until later in the day. Manitou Springs, Colo is an example of a once nice little town being ruined by homeless, dirty users of Marijuana. We would have once stopped and shopped in this town, but this time we just passed on by.
Wake up America!!
